“We will always have been who we are.”
The ten thousand things; the one true only; the Good Neighbours, yes yes, of course: but also violence, and power, and yes genderfuck, and hearts broken cleanly (and otherwise), the city of Portland, The F--rie Queene, those moments in pop songs when the bass and all of the drums except maybe a handclap suddenly drop out of the bridge leaving you hanging from a slender aching thread of melody waiting almost dreading the moment when the beat comes back, and the occasional bit of swordplay— City of Roses is an epic urban fantasy serial zine set rather firmly in Portland, Oregon. The first eleven chapters have now been gathered together in an EPUB-formatted ebook for your handheld reading convenience.

If you think of it as an arc-driven television program (as is all the rage these days in the States), the first 11 novelette-length chapters represent the first half of a season. That’s roughly 150,000 words, or the equivalent of a 400-some-odd page mass-market paperback. —What are those words about? Well: it’s about what happens when Jo Maguire, a highly strung, underemployed telemarketer, meets Ysabel, a princess of unspecified pedigree.—The elevator pitch; the table of contents (oh, yes: all chapters are also freely available online, in HTML).
