The Oogenesis of Bird City
Genre Science Fiction
Type Short story
Series Beverly Hills, Level 14
Also published as: "The Oögenesis of Bird City".
A detailed description of the physical construction of a community, "The Oogenesis of Beverly Hills, Level 14" was cut out of the story "Riders of the Purple Wage". Rewritten to stand on its own feet, it effectively is the prologue to "Riders of the Purple Wage" (1967),
DESCRIPTION:
How to build 'a new world'? What is the answer to the not working capitalism and the economy of scarcity? An economy of abundance might be the answer. But what are the consequences?
Martin H. Greenberg about the story: «"The Oogenesis of Bird City," while it won no awards, is in some ways even more interesting than "Riders," especially in its discussion of the city's politics.»
