Smoke, intelligent fog, fun house mirrors, death house aesthetics, a city lit from within and a city of living houses. Riddles and enigmas. What was that language, where is its key? City webworks for instant travel by elevator or magic bus. People who are you and me, only fictional. Elf clubs burrowed snug in the friendly earth and nightclubs whose floor show is literally murder. St James Infirmary as you've never heard it in your life before. Song styling's of owls. Storytellers way too invowen with the stories they tell. Red and blue water on tap. Dream or real? You or me? Happening to us or do we make it happen? Plain language that almost makes sense. Bloodsuckers alive and undead. A once-majestic hall of mirrors that now exists somewhere between memory and legend. Alive and und--ead, alive and unde--ead. . . Vomiting parties, economic indices, themebook competitions. Action and suspense, stories that begin. Till human voices wake us. Have you noticed how cities are like dreams? Anything imaginable can happen in them. Cut the deck and  snap! the cards. Step right up.
