Note: Follow-up to Tales of the City and More Tales of the City, this short story collection is based around the "City of the Saved", from the 2004 Faction Paradox novel of the same name. (Since Faction Paradox were originally created for the Doctor Who novel Alien Bodies, that makes this book a sequel to a sequel to a spin-off from a spin-off from a TV tie-in...!) Even for me, that's stretching things a little too far, so even though subsequent City of the Saved books have been published, they currently are not listed on this site.
In a pub on a hill by a bay in the technological utopia beyond the end of the universe, customers gather to tell the stories of their afterlives.
An older woman steals intangibly from her boyfriends, while a naive student learns more about her world. A historian and a detective made in a king's image seek answers to long-standing mysteries. A man-about-town makes a living finding doppelgangers. Another man may be not a storyteller, but a story.
These are their tales.
