Description:  Short story collection based around the “City of the Saved”, from the 2004 Faction Paradox novel of the same name.

Cover blurb:
‘Once upon a time, the universe ended. And they all lived happily ever after.’


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.
