    City is a novel which is actually made up of nine stories, originally published separately, but later strung together with a series of notes explaining that these stories are part of the mythological heritage of the civilisation of Dogs, who believe that the existence of Man is most probably only a legend City May 1944 Occasionally, you read an old science fiction story and are just blown away by the remarkable prescience of the author and his or her ability to predict future events.Well City is a novel which is actually made up of nine stories, originally published separately, but later strung together with a series of notes explaining that...
