Invincible City: The world is ending, time zone by time zone. A group of wealthy tourists, able to jump across the stratosphere from city to city, apparently at will, are staying just ahead of the death and destruction, trying to ignore it and have one last party before the end comes. But they cannot escape their own fears nor the resentment of the citizens of the cities they have plundered for so long. Time's up gentlemen. Blvd de Paris: Rhoda, the famous painter, hates her own work, and herself for being so successful with such empty work. She travels by train across Europe with her entourage of frenemies, trying to ignore the Dashing But Ominous Gentleman who wishes only to put her in touch with the Space Aliens that will finally give her the information she needs to be successful as an Artist and as a Person.
