<xsl:copy-of select="(document('file1.xml')|document('file2.xml')|document('file3.xml'))/story"/>

or if it's more convenient have a list.xml that looks like

then you can co

<xsl:copy-of select="document(document('list.xml')/files/file)/story"/>

in xslt2 you can use the collection() function which essentially
automates (and hides) the generation of the list.xml file, but in XSLT1
you need to have this file list to hand either by making it manually or
9for example) modifying a directory listing. Some web service setups
have an option of supplying a listing in XMl format so sometimes you
don't need to make an actual file list xml file, just use an http URI
pointing at the directory.
