    Following up on the World Fantasy Award-winning Leviathan 3, Leviathan 4 explores the character of cities and the city as character, mapping the streets of the imagination. This fourth volume of the Leviathan series takes the reader to a variety of cities in all their splendor and decadence. Explore the streets of the imagination, wander the byways, and hear the stories of these fantastical foci with such authors as Philip K. Dick Award winner Stepan Chapman, International Horror Guild Award Winner Michael Cisco, and "The Etched City" author KJ Bishop. What others have said about previous volumes in the Leviathan series: "Literary decadence is the credo of Leviathan: elaborately languorous prose, ambitious and sometimes esoteric symbolism, flamboyant grotesquerie, the sensibility of the sophisticatedly jaded aesthete. This is a recipe for fine, unusual writing, for startlingly unconventional textual effects; Leviathan . . . is a feast for palates this way inclined . . . Decadent fantasy has rarely had this attractive and substantial a vehicle" (Nick Gevers, Locus).

    The anthology comprises: 'The City of God' (Michael Cisco), 'The Dreaming City' (Ben Peek), 'The Soul Bottles' (Jay Lake), 'Encyclopedia of Ubar' (Catherine Kasper), 'Mimosa in Heligola' (Allan Kausch), 'We the Enclosed' (K.J. Bishop), 'The Revenge of the Calico Cat' (Stepan Chapman), 'The City of Lost Languages' (Darla Beasley), 'The Wizard of Wardenclyffe' (Ursula Pflug), and 'The Imaginary Anatomy of a Horse' (Tim Jarvis).
