Some fiction treats cities as a living breathing entity, as much a part of the story as any of the other characters. These urban visions give a fresh look at the city, pearing beyond the exterior and exposing the strange secrets beneath.

The city you as you know it is given life by its inhabitants, and the soul of the city might well be contained within the grasp of a secret underclass living beneath our feet. Or even above our heads. These groups understand the urban landscape and make it their own.

These are about the myths of the city, the urban versions of the fairy tales handed down by our rural ancestors. An attempt to give the city an identity of its own, distinct from the other landscapes in which we might live. What makes the city, the ultimate collection of individuals tick and who owns it?
