Signal Boost: City Beyond Time hardcopy

John C. Wright’s City Beyond Time is finally in paperback!

Metachronopolis is the golden city beyond time. Ruled by the Masters of Time, who can travel freely throughout the multitudinous time lines of Man’s history, the city is a shining society of heroes and horrors. For the arrogant Masters, who steal famous men and women out of the past and bring them to the eternal city for their amusement, are not only beyond time, but beyond remorse and retribution too.

CITY BEYOND TIME: Tales of the Fall of Metachronopolis is John C. Wright’s mind-bending and astonishingly brilliant take on time travel. Utilizing a centuries-spanning perspective, Wright expertly weaves a larger tale out of a series of smaller ones. Part anthology and part novel, CITY BEYOND TIME is fascinating, melancholy, frightening, and a true masterpiece of story-telling by one of the most important and audacious authors in science fiction today.

John C. Wright is the Dragon Award-winning author of SOMEWHITHER, THE GOLDEN AGE and AWAKE IN THE NIGHT LAND.

    This has become my favorite time travel novel. Even though it is a collection of short stories, like Armitage, Armitage, Fly Away Home, the stories are arranged in such a way that they tell a coherent story. It’s challenging, beautiful, clever and rewards multiple re-reads. I am purchasing copies for birthday and Christmas gifts.

      It was the first thing I read by John and it’s fantastic.
