About a Girl Edit

"About a Girl" is a story by Dale Smith in the anthology Tales of the City edited by Philip Purser-Hallard for Obverse Books.

Synopsis Edit

Not everyone appreciates rebirth in the City of the Saved. There are those for whom life itself was too much of a struggle that death was a release. There are those who never got a chance at a first life, so whose imagos (their bodies in the City as shaped by self image) never had time to develop beyond that of a newborn. Some of those people gravitate towards each other, and some of those try to find ways to escape immortality itself.
