The last time Elizabeth Bear had a secret project, it turned out to be Shadow Unit.
Now Elizabeth Bear (and John Scalzi) have announced the next secret project: Metatropolis
This is a shared world series of novellas, with a twist. This is an audio project with no planned print publication.
I'm less excited about the audio aspect of this, but given the colllective talents of John Scalzi, Tobias Buckell, Elizabeth Bear, Jay Lake, and Karl Schroeder, this is something that I have to check out.
Personally, I'd rather read the stories in print or online, but given that this is was conceived as a project to be listened to, I'll give it a shot. With the storytellers involved, how can I not?
