"O'Donnell builds a world both enticing and unsettling...The City remains full of surprises at every turn."
-JRD Skinner, "Flashpulp"


The City is a place beyond the real world. Created and controlled by the titanic Midas Corporation, The hyper-realistic virtual environment is the capital of an empire without borders, outside the reach of terrestrial law enforcement.
When controlling interest in the company is sold to a mysterious new player, The City breaks down, trapping millions inside with feral, zombie-like avatars. And the infection is spreading. It falls to the Daytrippers, teenage hackers and rebels who don't play by Midas' rules, to save The City, and the world.

A drabble novella told from one hundred and forty different points of view, The City is like no place you've ever seen before.

I'm liking to see different perspectives in short description.
