A mysterious, mega-metropolis with more secrets than dark corners. Here adventure, excitement, danger, tragedy and triumph are daily events..welcome to The City.
‘The City. No one knows how it began or when it will end. No one knows how we came to be here, 20 millions souls, 1500 different species all crammed together in plascrete and biosteel. No one’s been in or out of the city in 20 centuries. Some have their theories why, some don’t care. But no matter who you are, or what you are, you have a story, don’t you? The trick is finding someone that cares to listen…’ – Milton Davis
The concept was born when Milton Davis, indie publishing extraordinaire posed a synopsis to an anthology idea. It proved to be a great writing prompt. The imagination of writers was sparked and what developed were brief blurbs, prose and poetry centered around The City. As the ideas flowed, the entire world-building session of sorts was transported to its own Facebook page where the creativity continued. At some point, The City: A Cyberfunk Anthology was officially born!
But every city needs citizens and The City is no exception.
What does Cityzenship imply? It recognizes a place among peers in a unique province or domain. Gathered together to live amongst each other; to breathe life into thoughts and dreams. This is an Honor given to those that heard and heeded the Call;
