I’ve gathered together here four reading lists of interesting writing in the literature of the fantastic.
The first, which ties in nicely with OGOM’s forthcoming conference The Urban Weird, is a guide by Chelsea Mueller to the genre of urban fantasy, ‘Urban Fantasy 101: 10 Books to Get You Started‘.
Then, again in tune with The Urban Weird, a list by Sarah Hannah Gomez on transformations in YA fiction of real cities and places such as London, Italy, New York, and Berlin: ‘7 YA Books That Turn Real Cities and Countries Upside Down‘.
Melissa Albert reviews a range of new YA fantastic novels here.
Finally, a useful guide from Maureen Lee Lenker, who writes on ‘27 Female Authors Who Rule Sci-Fi and Fantasy Right Now‘.
