Oriental Tales is a quarterly magazine devoted to showcasing entertaining and thought-provoking travel stories from East Asia. This book anthology features a collection of 19 of the best short stories from the magazine - written by 16 authors from all over the world. This is not a travel guide. Authors document their experiences from a particular region by presenting a microcosm of events, intended to spark readers' imaginations and curiosities about their travel destinations throughout Asia.

Henderson Dallas attends a workshop to work through his phobia - deciophobia, a fear of making decisions. However, things don't go exactly as planned... and those with a fear of hair band together and decide to take action. A hostage situation ensues and they make their terms to the police - that everyone in town must remove all their body hair; or else!
