Summary
As an incubator of the future, Los Angeles has long mesmerized writers from Philip K. Dick to Aldous Huxley. With its natural disasters, Hollywood artifice, staggering wealth and poverty, urban sprawl, and diversity, Los Angeles is already so weird, surreal, irrational, and mythic that any fiction emerging from this place should be considered speculative. This debut title of a new city-based anthology series features brand-new tales from 14 of the city's most prophetic voices.
