Caleb, if you're reading Sandman and need a breather,
I recommend Fables and Reflections, Worlds' End, and
Dream Country, which feature short stories rather than
being part of the storyline proper.  There is a story
in Worlds' End about living cities.  

I also vaguely recall a story about living cities
laying eggs, but I don't know where I read that.  Now
that I think of it, could it have been a Discworld
novel?  It involved--I forget what you call them--the
glass balls with the little scene inside and white
stuff that swirls like snow when you shake it.
