String City

String City by Graham Edwards. Illustration by Vince HaigThe universe is made of string. When the knots tighten, the cosmos quakes.

“It’s a tough job being a gumshoe in an interdimensional city full of gods, living concepts and weirder things. Good job I’m a stringwalker, able to jump between realities.

“It started when I was hired to investigate an explosion at a casino. A simple heist, I thought, but it turned into a race to stop the apocalypse. So I rolled the dice, and now I’m up against the ancient Greek Titans, an interdimensional spider god and a mysterious creature known as the Fool. I’m going to need more than just luck to solve this one.

“If I fail, all things — in all realities — could be destroyed.

“Just another day in String City.”

In String City, everything runs on an unhealthy mixture of minced Greek myth and cosmic geometry. Watch out for giant spider gods and ravenous ghosts, mechanical sleuths and fallen angels. The crime lords are Titans and you don’t want to know what’s lurking in the sewers… but, if you like your detective stories on the weird side, String City will introduce you to a world you might never want to leave!
