Topic: Hegira vs City

I read Hegira in the 90's and loved it. And read City as soon as the bookstore could put it on the shelf. It is always interesting to read an early writer's view on what essentially involves the same topic, the end and eventual beginning of a universe. I bet a shrink could babble on about the younger Bear vs the older Bear, but I'll just enjoy both of these for what they are, good books.

Thanks, Jason! I also touched on the end of the universe in ETERNITY and a shorter work, "Judgment Engine."

Judgement Engine is *the pinnacle* of metaphorical and transcendent thought.

And, something aural to accompany this:
