Palomar City is an overpopulated, tightly-packed, American mega-city. The stories in this near-future sci-fi world rocket from the dangerous, high-octane lifestyle of the Gatecrashers, to the back-stabbing politics of city hall, from behind the doors of Palomar General, the busiest public emergency room in the world, to the illicit wetware markets of the streets.
