Publisher's Summary

M is a magician of modest wit, dim ability, and few scruples, who would prefer to spend his easy immortality drinking artisanal beer and making eyes at smiling women. Alas, in the infinite nexus of the universe that is New York City, equilibrium is no easy thing to maintain. Canal pirates, drug-induced divinities, pocket steam-punk universes, hipster zombies, ex-girlfriends, and the devil are all taken in easy stride - but when the city's uneasy dual monarchy threatens to break into outright war, it will take all of M's cleverness to keep the capital of existence from going the way of Atlantis.

He might even have to get out of bed before noon.

Sharp, surreal, and hilarious, A City Dreaming is the postmodern fantasy adventure you never saw coming.

creative, orignal, fantastic story

What made the experience of listening to A City Dreaming the most enjoyable?

It was a little nonlinear, but once I got into the rythm of the story I found it to be fantastic. It is truly an original. Really loved this one.

What about Eric Meyers’s performance did you like?

He captured the characters and tension well without sounding campy.

Ridiculous story

This story jumps around some much I almost got vertigo. I had to rewind constantly. It makes no sense how much this story jumps from dimension to dimension. I finally just quit. I wish I could get my credit back.
