Garden City is a collection of 20 short fictions. Created by the Goddess of Time herself, Garden City is home to punks, people and magic. Delve into these lives; each are beautiful but sharp, like a rose with thorns...
Welcome to Garden City
We have all walked down its streets; we are all familiar with Garden City. Sidewalks that need cleaning grey concrete streets, intersected with the occasional path of cobblestone. A neighborhood that houses punks, artists, and assorted others.
But Garden City is different. Its streets were founded by The Goddess of Time herself. Magic is alive in her streets and live alongside with mortals but only few know it. Beginning with a book of collected fiction Garden City is a handful of lives, all happening at the same time.
There are 20 fictions collected in GARDEN CITY. Each of the stories takes a look at someone in Garden City and through most of it, Owen Wolfe is our guide. As a writer, he knows some interesting people and meets a few more. There's Kimberlee, who is claimed as a bride by a statue come to life. Or Nancy, a young woman who meets the Goddess of the Fae in a city park.
But there are others who live in Garden City as well. There is Poppy who is able to turn into a Crow after a mysterious dream. There is Alex who prolongs his life by out running the Three Fates; Hillary who disappears while on assignment for a reality TV show. A woman named Miriam disappeared on the thirteenth floor of Edison Tower.
Garden City grew out of Dreams...
Most times, my dreams become stories. In an effort to understand them, I put them down on paper. Then I can delve into my dreams and figure out what they are trying to tell me. The dreams grow like flowers on the page, finding a life of their own.
These dreams on paper, these moments in time, became stories. I have set all these stories in the same place without really knowing it; it is somewhere, it is nowhere. I don't know whether or not it's American or Canadian. I just know that it exists in my dreams.
GARDEN CITY is like a dozen of lives, all happening at the same time. Look at Garden City like a bouquet of flowers: beautiful, but with sharp thorns.
