"O'Donnell builds a world both enticing and unsettling...The City remains full of surprises at every turn."
  -JRD Skinner, "Flashpulp"
Winner of The 2017 Ooorah Award for Best Cyberpunk!

  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.
