Short story collection based around the City of the Saved, from the 2004 Faction Paradox novel of the same name.
After the end — ours and the universe's — there is: The City of the Saved.
A repository for the uploaded souls of all humanity, the City is a technological utopia, a secular heaven. Heroes and villains, angels and monsters may be found in the City, but many ordinary people live here, too.
Well, all of them in fact.
In these stories, the first by writers other than the City's creator Philip Purser-Hallard, we meet six of them. A hitchhiker, a lecturer, a tourist, a socialite, a twin, a cop: ordinary men and women living an extraordinary afterlife.
These are their tales.
