Stranger Tales of the City was the sixth anthology in the City of the Saved series. It was edited by range veteran Liz Evershed, making it the first City of the Saved anthology to be edited by someone other than the City's creator Philip Purser-Hallard.

Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

The knights hospitaller have just woken to a second life in a City the size of a galaxy.

Two strangers from a far-distant future are flung together on Resurrection Day.

A window-seller visits a claustrophobic suburb and finds it full of mystery.

A Remake gunslinger seeks a new role from the one he was always meant to play…

In this, the sixth anthology in the City of the Saved series, we meet a host of human and not-so-human characters getting to grips with life in the afterlife: alien adoptees with no previous experience of human cultures; Citizens permanently missing and not merely misplaced; priestesses of long-forgotten religions; posthumans with their own baffling version of the Civil Tongue; a viral strain of humankind that has never known community…

The City is full of strangers and these are their tales.
