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:
- "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 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.
