The Roots of Urban Fantasy

An interesting history of the “urban fantasy” (AKA vampire porn) novel.

As an aside, I’m kind of embarrassed to say out loud that, shit, man, Rusch is a really terrible writer. I’m sure she writes good *story* (which would be why she sells so many), but she really doesn’t have a lot of technical skill. Lots of interesting stuff to chew on here, just not articulated as well as it could have been.

Sorry. I had to say that out loud.

Now go forth and create the next reimagined gothic, people! I’m bored with vampire porn.
