New York City
In The Listener, Liz Duffy Adams continues to look at our current world through her sci-fi lens, making today’s pop culture icons and slang words the mythological basis of religion for the very far off future inhabitants of Junk City, Planet Earth. The thing is, the Junk City citizens are the only people left. Everyone else migrated to Nearth (aka: the moon) long ago, declaring the world uninhabitable. In Junk City, rules are rules. You have your title and position in society. The Listener, alone in sanctuary, patiently listens for sounds of other life through an old radio device. Namer, the keeper of historic knowledge and Namer of all junk, keeps a close tab on the Junk City inhabitants. You don’t step out of rank. Things get dangerous if you do.So when John, a representative from Nearth, descends upon the small dystopia in his spaceship, things get weird. He’s there to “save” them, but do they need it? Do they want it? Watch your back. John’s in for a scary ride…
