The City of the Saved series was a collection of short story anthologies set in the eponymous City. Obverse Books began the series after obtaining the license to the City in 2011; it was a spin-off of the Faction Paradox series.
- Philip Purser-Hallard, creator of the City of the Saved, said he viewed the City as a "seed concept" that could generate stories indefinitely, spanning all genres, time periods, and types of character. In 2005, Purser-Hallard and Faction Paradox creator Lawrence Miles co-wrote a pilot script for a radio sitcom set in the City, and it was recorded "using real actors and stuff", but it was never released.
- Purser-Hallard said in 2007 that he would love to do a short story anthology set in the City, citing Lance Parkin's 2004 Warlords of Utopia Prologue as a successful example of another author using the City. In December 2011, six months after the release of their first Faction Paradox anthology A Romance in Twelve Parts, Obverse Books announced Tales of the City as part of their "Obverse Quarterly" anthology range.
