Book: Metatropolis edited by John Scalzi

A group of five novellas (novelettes?) set in a shared, post-peak oil world.

This collection was initially released as an audiobook, I think. Not sure it makes a difference, though.

The works explore the future of cities after the end of expanding capitalism. Right down my alley, for sure. What do you do with skyscrapers when the concentration of labor's no longer required?

There's a lot of casting about for alternative economic and physical structures.
