In 1925, earthquakes and a rising sea level left Lower Manhattan submerged under more than 30 feet of water, so that its residents began to call it the Drowning City. Those unwilling to abandon their homes created a new life on streets turned to canals and in buildings whose first three stories were underwater. Fifty years have passed since then, and the Drowning City is full of scavengers and water rats, poor people trying to eke out an existence, and those too proud or stubborn to be defeated by circumstance.

This story is 100% in my wheelhouse, with Lovecraftian gods, sad golems, magic and science gone afoul. I love to just turn it on when I'm working and listen through again. The narration is well done and imbues a good level of warmth to the story telling.
