Summary
  • "Scalzi and his contributors/collaborators have created a fascinating shared urban future that each of them evokes with his or her particular strengths....Originally an audio anthology, this stellar collection is a fascinating example of shared world-building, well deserving of a parallel life in print"-Booklist --
  • A strange man comes to an even stranger encampment...a bouncer becomes the linchpin of an unexpected urban movement...a courier on the run has to decide who to trust in a dangerous city...a slacker in a "zero-footprint" town gets a most unusual new job...and a weapons investigator uses his skills to discover a metropolis hidden right in of his eyes. --
  • Welcome to the future of cities. Welcome to Metatropolis. --
  • More than an anthology, Metatropolis is the brainchild of five of science fiction's hottest writers Elizabeth Bear, Tobias S. Buckell, Jay Lake, Karl Schroeder, and project editor John Scalzi who combined their talents to build a new urban future, and then wrote individual stories in this collectively constructed world. The results are unique glimpses of a shared vision and a reading experience unlike any you've had before. --
  • You're at the city limits now. See what's waiting inside. --Book Jacket
