The City of the Saved (the city after the end of the universe where everyone ever is alive again all at once) is a great idea, and I'm thankful that it's gotten its first full-length feature here. Highlights include Elizabeth Evershed's "The Socratic Problem," where Socrates is brought on a guest lecturer at a City university; "Highbury" by Helen Angove, set in a district of the City inhabited by people from Regency England and people who wish they were from Regency England; and the magnificently creepy "Bruises" by Dave Hoskin.
