I'm pleased to announce that on November 16th, Audible.com will release METAtropolis: Cascadia. This is the sequel to METAtropolis, was nominated for both the Hugo Award and the Audie Award (the top honor in the audiobook industry), as well as being published in print by both Subterranean Press and Tor.

This project was edited by me, with work from five other very fine writers. The intention was to focus on just one of the regions covered in the original METAtropolis. This audio anthology deals with the Pacific Northwest, and the successors to Cascadiopolis, subject of my story in the original volume, "In the Forests of the Night." My own story is a direct sequel, some forty years after the first piece, which explores the direct consequences of the fate of Cascadiopolis. The others take different directions into this same future.

The line-up is:



Here's the blurb for the anthology:

As the mid-21st Century approaches, 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.

Very cool - any chance this one will get picked up by SubPress, too? Would like a matched set :)

I am so jazzed that you've gone back to this particular well.

Are there plans for a book version? Note: the correct answer is "yes, Lawrence, hardbound of course, and we'll all sign your copy."

I too will wait patiently for a SubPress (or whomever, but I like those guys) edition. I waited 18 months to read METAtropolis and it was worth every minute.

Thanks,

OOOOooohhh!! Not gonna lie, I found Cascadia the most intriguing "-opolis" in the original. Any word on who the readers for the audiobook will be?

I do believe Audible has a forthcoming announcement on the reader lineup. I expect it to be rather impressive. :)
