'This masterful work positions Lu among the vanguard of contemporary futurism and speculative fiction.'-Publishers Weekly, starred reviewIn the tradition of Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities, debut author S. Qiouyi Lu has written a multifaceted story of borders, power, diaspora, and transformation with In the Watchful City.The city of Ora is watching.Anima is an extrasensory human tasked with surveilling and protecting Ora's citizens via a complex living network called the Gleaming. Although aer world is restricted to what ae can see and experience through the Gleaming, Anima takes pride and comfort in keeping Ora safe from harm.When a mysterious outsider enters the city carrying a cabinet of curiosities from around with the world with a story attached to each item, Anima's world expands beyond the borders of Ora to places-and possibilities-ae never before imagined to exist. But such knowledge leaves Anima with a question that throws into doubt aer entire purpose: What good is a city if it can't protect its people?At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
