Book description
Twelve of the stories in Other Cities were previously published as a weekly series on Strange Horizons. The entire series is presented here for the first time and each story is illustrated with the art of Boston artist and architect Peter Reiss.

Cities are seemingly inevitable, seductive, depressing, and inebriating. In his Other Cities series Benjamin Rosenbaum takes us on a tour of fourteen imaginary cities:

* from "The White City" -- where two sisters fight one another and their fate -- to Bellur -- which celebrates its censors --
* from Ponge -- that's already enough about that -- to Zvlotsk -- where by 1912 detective work accounted for a third of the economy
* from Jouiselle-aux-Chantes -- the city of erotic forgetting -- to Stin -- the city for those who are tired of other cities --

Rosenbaum's stories illuminate the hidden corners of the world the train rider suspects exist at the stop after theirs, the tourist knows the locals will never reveal, and the mapmakers keep for themselves.
