Solaris, the multiple-award winning publisher of cutting-edge science fiction and fantasy, is excited to announce the publication of String City by Graham Edwards—an interdimensional thriller that follows a wise-cracking private detective in an interdimensional city full of gods, living concepts and weirder things!
In String City, everything runs on an unhealthy mixture of minced Greek myth and cosmic geometry. Watch out for giant spider gods and ravenous ghosts, mechanical sleuths and fallen angels. The crime lords are Titans and you don’t want to know what’s lurking in the sewers… but, if you like your detective stories on the weird side, String City will introduce you to a world you might never want to leave!

The universe is made of string. When the knots tighten, the Cosmos quakes.
It’s a tough job being a gumshoe in an interdimensional city full of gods, living concepts and weirder things. Good thing I’m a stringwalker, able to jump between realities.
It started when I was hired to investigate an explosion at a casino. A simple heist, I thought, but it turned into a race to stop the apocalypse. So I rolled the dice, and now I’m up against the ancient Greek Titans, an interdimensional spider god and a mysterious creature known as The Fool.
I’m going to need more than just luck to solve this one. If I fail, all things—in all realities—could be destroyed.
Just another day in String City.
*String City is out from Solaris on the 24th of January. Watch the String City Teaser Here!*
