Everything looks different beyond the precipice. We cross the threshold and we're changed irrevocably. What was familiar doesn't stay that way. We hunger desperately for new experiences even as nostalgia consumes us. Both strange and delightful, the city is a phantom limb that points toward a deepening yet tenuous symbiosis; it could either sustain us or lead to our destruction. Made in L.A. Vol. 4: Beyond the Precipice shines a light on Angelenos who have gone past the point of no return.

This anthology series showcases a diverse range of voices and genres inspired by this glorious, shape-shifting place: Los Angeles | El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles | L.A. Like the City of Angels where these stories were born, nothing is off-limits. Literary or contemporary, fantasy or science fiction, each story in this volume invites you to view this urban landscape through a different lens.

Made in L.A. Writers came into being because local readers expressed their desire, en masse, for stories about their city. As a collaborative of Los Angeles-based writers who are dedicated to nurturing and promoting indie fiction, our work is both influenced and illuminated by our hometown and underpinned by the extraordinary, multifaceted, and often surreal culture and life in L.A.
