In the previous post we talked about the first authors who ventured into the uncharted territory that was urban fantasy in the 80s and the 90s: Charles de Lint, Emma Bull, Laurell K. Hamilton, Neil Gaiman, and others. Now let’s see how urban fantasy evolved in the first decade of the 21st century.

History of Urban Fantasy: Genesis of the Genre

Post has attachment
Urban fantasy is a young and vibrant genre of speculative fiction that brings the fantastical into a modern setting. Elves play guitar in rock bands, goblins roam our cities’ underground tunnels, and the dead rise from the graves to torment—or seduce!—the living. Those who look down on this genre and dismiss it as mere escapism would be surprised to learn about its pedigree. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, as we shall see, urban fantasy is of noble descent!

Mirror Souls. Who are they? Abominations or the next stage of evolution?
The London police investigates a series of mysterious murders that occur in the city’s underground tunnels. The victims—all hardened criminals—have four puncture wounds on their forehead, but none of these wounds were lethal. The cause of death is cardiac arrest—they literally died of fear. Who is behind these murders? A serial killer or a vigilante? Is the murderer even human?
André de Mirandol, a young sociologist, is hired by Interpol to help with the investigation. To solve the mystery, André will have to confront a ghost from his family’s past.
This book contains the novella “Mirror Souls: A Prelude” and the first three chapters from the novel “Griffen”.

Whitby, in the footsteps of Dracula (Part 2)
The story of Whitby Abbey could be the subject of a book. The symbolic importance of this building changed constantly over the centuries. Place of spirituality and knowledge, place of power, place of violence and tragedy, place of hope, place of leisure, place of artistic inspiration. Why did Bram Stoker find inspiration for his Gothic novel "Dracula" among the ruins of Whitby Abbey?
