Mimi of the Nowhere
by Michael Kilman
In the bowels of the giant walking city of Manhatsten, Mimi survives, homeless, and unique as the only telepath in what’s left of humanity. Mimi has isolated herself for centuries, watching the few friends and lovers she let close die, as she endures.
Then, after decades alone with her gift, something interrupts her telepathy. She realizes she might not be alone after all. Mimi soon discovers a secret that has remained hidden since the walking cities took their first steps a thousand years ago. A secret that could cost her life, or worse.
Will she survive, or will the city ultimately recycle her?

Upon Stilted Cities: The Winds of Change
The Children of Gaia won’t stop until every last walking city is destroyed.
The city of Langeles is rubble, resources are dwindling, and storm systems are larger than ever before. The people of Manhasten are in great danger, and they don’t even know it yet.
Life in the city hasn’t changed much in the forty years since Mimi joined her telepathic sisters of The Order of the Eye, but the winds of change are blowing, and their enemy, the Children of Gaia wait in the shadows to turn the city to ash. At the center of it all is one man, a man as ancient as the city of Manhasten itself, a man designated Runner 17. A man who is more then he knows, and maybe the only one who can save the city and the rest of humanity.
