Urban Fantasy

Another genre of storytelling that I'm interested in is that of "Urban Fantasy." I don't want to go into a lot of depth on some of this, because I think I can milk it for more material later on.

Based on that link, here's what I've got that might qualify as "urban fantasy":

  • The Dresden Files (TV and Book Series), by Jim Butcher
  • Neverwhere, American Gods, Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman
  • Buffy: The Vampire Slayer and Angel created by Joss Whedon
  • Everything in the "World of Darkness" (new or old) by White Wolf Game Studio, even though they're meant as horror games can be played as urban fantasy
