A strange man comes to an even stranger encampment… a bouncer becomes the linchpin of an unexpected urban movement… a courier on the run has to decide who to trust in a dangerous city and a slacker in a "zero-footprint" town gets a most unusual new job. Welcome to the future of cities. Welcome to METAtropolis.More than an anthology, METAtropolis is the brainchild of five of science fiction's hottest writers-Elizabeth Bear, Tobias Buckell, Jay Lake, Karl Schroeder, and project editor John Scalzi-who combined their talents to build a new urban future, and then wrote their own stories in this collectively constructed world. The results are individual glimpses of a shared vision, and a reading experience unlike any you've had before. METAtropolis was originally published as an audio original from Audible.com; it was subsequently printed in a limited small-press edition of 2,000 copies. The Tor hardcover was the first edition available to the general trade.

John Michael Scalzi was born May 10, 1969 in California. He attended the University of Chicago. During his 1989 -1990 school year he was the editor-in-chief of The Chicago Maroon. After graduating in 1991, Scalzi took a job as the film critic for the Fresno Bee newspaper, eventually also becoming a humor columnist. In 1996 he was hired as the in-house writer and editor at America Online. When he was laid off in 1998, he decided to become a full-time freelance writer and author. His first published novel was Old Man's War. His other works include Agent to the Stars, The Ghosts Brigades, The Androids Team, The Sagan Diary, The Last Colony, and Redshirts: A Novel with Three Codas. In 2014 his title, Locked In, made The New York Times Best Seller List.
