Product Description:

2009 Hugo Award nominee, Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form; 2009 Audie Award nominee, Original Work

Welcome to a world where big cities are dying, dead – or transformed into technological megastructures. Where once-thriving suburbs are now treacherous Wilds. Where those who live for technology battle those who would die rather than embrace it. It is a world of zero-footprint cities, virtual nations, and armed camps of eco-survivalists. Welcome to the dawn of uncivilization.

METAtropolis is an intelligent and stunning creation of five of today’s cutting-edge science-fiction writers: 2008 Hugo Award winners John Scalzi and Elizabeth Bear; Campbell Award winner Jay Lake; plus fan favorites Tobias Buckell and Karl Schroeder. Together they set the ground rules and developed the parameters of this “shared universe”, then wrote five original novellas – all linked, but each a separate tale.

Bringing this audiobook to life is a dream team of performers: Battlestar Galactica’s Michael Hogan (“Saul Tigh”); Alessandro Juliani (“Felix Gaeta”); and Kandyse McClure (“Anastasia ‘Dee’ Dualla”); plus legendary audiobook narrators Scott Brick (Dune) and Stefan Rudnicki (Ender’s Game).

John Scalzi, who served as Project Editor, introduces each story, offering insight into how the METAtropolis team created this unique project exclusively for digital audio.

    I just finished re-listening to these stories, and those of the sequel collection, during a long road trip last week. In the wake of the Occupy movement, I find some of these stories — especially the first one, about Cascadiopolis, with its non-government –amazingly resonant!

    I remain very pleased with how vividly the authors and narrators describe their scenarios, their environments, and the action. In this collection, Kandyse McClure’s narration is an especially surprising treat, as her voice is capable of conveying a far greater range of emotions than the character Dualla generally expressed!
