When my brain gets saturated and I can't move forward one one project - or even on one particular *aspect* of a project - I simply switch over to another. The greater the cognitive difference is between the two tasks, the easier and more effective this tactic is.(less)

The system-neutral sourcebook for science fiction roleplaying games will allow gamemasters to take their players into the world of the book, pursuing their own stories in a rich and dynamic environment.

This collaboratively-designed setting weaves the imagination of ten writers into a multi-layered depiction of a foreseeable future, and raises questions about consciousness, reality, and what it means to be human. The anthology features short stories and prose by Niko Carcosa, Antony Copeland, Tod Davies, DeAnna Knippling, SL Koch, Shariann Lewitt, Kira Magrann, Adrian McCauley, T Reynolds, and myself.

A Patreon exists for anyone who wishes to help support the UbiquiCity project. Patrons get a look behind the scenes as the project develops, and higher level patrons will receive free copies of the sourcebook.
