I’m here to announce that a novella of mine, called Byways, will be in the sequel to METAtropolis, called METAtropolis: Cascadia.
METAtropolis was an audio project by Audible.com that you could purchase from Audible or iTunes featuring a shared world glimpse at the future of cities from an awesome cast of authors, each with their own take.
METAtropolis: Cascadia moves the geographical focus to the Pacific Northwest. Jay Lake took on editing and leading the concept for this sequel, and the launch date for it is November 16th.
You might be naturally wondering to yourself: Who all wrote stories for this incarnation of METAtropolis? Well, here’s the table of contents:
THE BULL DANCERS by Jay Lake
WATER TO WINE by Mary Robinette Kowal
BYWAYS by Tobias S. Buckell
CONFESSOR by Elizabeth Bear
DEODAND by Karl Schroeder
A SYMMETRY OF SERPENTS AND DOVES by Ken Scholes
Here’s the promo copy for it:
The Pacific Northwest has been transformed — politically, economically, and ecologically — into the new reality of Cascadia. Conspiracies and secrets threaten the tenuous threads of society. The End of Days seems nearer than ever. And the legend of the mysterious Tygre Tygre looms large.
I can’t wait for this launch!
