A City Dangerous, Seductive, and Strange

Set in a fantastical New York City of 1 B.C., these seven stories are a stunning mythic vision. In odysseys that wind through urban streets, Shakar's modern characters pursue their quests and meet their fates.

Roxanne, a schoolgirl superhero from Queens, saves the day at a brutal playground. The Junk Man build his lady love from trash he finds while Dumpster diving. A tough police detective comments on a city's decadence. A serial prankster leaves timely messages via light.

Story after story -- each fabulous and joyously imaginative -- are linked by their magnificent location. The result is a celebration of the sights and sounds of New York, its timeless eccentrics and its larger-than-life essence.
