Welcome to Human, an anthology exploring what it means to be human.

What defines being human? What makes us human? In the Wizard of Oz, the Tin Woodman had his axe cursed by a witch so that it would cut off a part of him every time he used it; and each piece of him that was cut off was magically replaced by a tin body part. In the end, he had no remaining organic parts; every part of him was constructed from tin. Was he still human?

The stories that follow are short (flash fiction, 1000 words or less) and they tackle this core question in myriad ways.
