The greatest pride of the ten International Literary Festivals Vilenica, from the first in 1986 to this year’s, are clearly the ten award winners, ten great names of contemporary, in particular Central European, literature. Additionally, 316 authors from fourteen Central European countries, countries with their literatures of the “Europe in between”, participated in the ten Vilenica events, publishing their texts in those ten anthologies. Among them, there were 63 Slovene poets and writers, whose texts are collected in this special publication, which marks the occasion of the tenth anniversary. It is not a classic anthology, nor a cross-section representing contemporary Slovene literary creativity. […] Leaf through this book and take it as an invitation to visit Slovene literature, as an invitation and provisions for the road, for a journey into a splendid, picturesquely varied world, where literature pulsates with intensity.
