What is Urban Fantasy?
Urban Fantasy is a sub genre of fiction that includes supernatural or fantasy elements in a more contemporary setting (although not necessarily always the case). These contemporary settings often, although don’t always, involve alternate histories and/or supernatural elements being “out” to the world at large. The genre includes:
shows like Grimm, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and The X-Files
series like The Dresden Files, the Mercy Thompson Series, and the Hollow Series
movies like Hellboy, Bright, and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
