Elektrograd: Rusted Blood is a novella by Warren Ellis, semi-planned as the first of seven (though it’s doubtful it’ll ever progress beyond this), each taking place in a different part of a futuristic city of experimental architecture. This one is basically a murder mystery set in the city of 50s scifi future, but ~60 years on when things are starting to fall apart. It’s really there for a few choice Ellis lines and the atmosphere of the city. If those two things don’t appeal to you, I wouldn’t bother. But they do appeal to me, so I enjoyed it.
