‘Once upon a time, the universe ended. And they all lived happily ever after.’

The City of the Saved logo

In a pub on a hill by a bay in the technological utopia beyond the end of the universe, customers gather to tell the stories of their afterlives.

An older woman steals intangibly from her boyfriends, while a naive student learns more about her world. A historian and a detective made in a king’s image seek answers to long-standing mysteries. A man-about-town makes a living finding doppelgangers. Another man may be not a storyteller, but a story.

These are their tales.


More Tales of the City is the second City of the Saved anthology from Obverse Books, and the first to be published independently of the Obverse Quarterly range.
