A man learns that all the animals at the Zoo are robots. A secret terminal in Changi Airport caters to deities. A prince falls in love with a crocodile. A concubine is lost in time. Singapore disappears.

These are the strange tales of Lion City, the first collection of short fiction by award-winning poet and playwright Ng Yi-Sheng.

Infused with myth, magical realism and contemporary sci-fi, Lion City invites you to see Singapore in a new and darkly fabulous light.
