Product description

City Summary: With a structure and tone similar to Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles, CITY is made up of eight loosely connected stories that are told in the form of "Legends" by the narrator, who prefaces each tale with a bit of commentary and academic notes on the story to come - and who also happens to be an intelligent dog. These legends provide an episodic recounting of the twilight of mankind and the emergence of dogs as the dominant species on the planet. Speaking from some point in the far future, the narrator, in recounting these oral legends to the next generation of pups, makes it clear that, while the stories make mention of a creature called "Man" and a thing called a "City," there is no proof that they actually existed. In fact, the narrator even mentions that most dog scholars who've studied these legends actually believe that idea of Man is simply a literary device used by the original authors to account for the existence of dog culture, much the same way that our human legends and origin stories mention gods and beings who no longer exist.
