Abstract

The stories contained in this collection revolve around a group of characters living in a nearly abandoned city. As the world around them becomes increasingly barren, they awaken from their mental stupor and attempt to enforce changes in their lives. Yet having been in a stupor they lack the tools for proper introspection and their attempts at change, though sincere, are largely superficial. As the world around them continues to dwindle they become almost ghost-like, and memory has become fragmented and unreliable. Lacking a cohesive past they are unable to gain a proper understanding of their selves, and are unable to free themselves from their physical environment. Like the city, they too are in the process of withering away.
