Penguin Random House’s website dedicated to sci-fi and fantasy, is currently holding its yearly ‘cage match,’ with characters from books pitted against each other. This year’s theme is “Sci-Fi vs. Fantasy” and they’re currently in round four! For each round, authors have written how they think the fight between the characters will go down, and users are able to vote on the character they think should win. For round four, the character matches are Tom Bombadil vs. Devi, written by Patrick Rothfuss and Ragnar Volarus vs. Georgia Mason, written by Seanan McGuire.                There’s about 10 hours left… Read more »

On Wednesday, the last episode of season 2 of Serial Box’s Bookburners serial was published! This makes it the perfect time to binge read the whole season! With thirteen episodes available on e-book and audiobook, it’s a perfect weekend activity, whether you like to read or listen to your books.

Serial Box has made a playlist for us – “If you were a techno-cultist trying to take over the world…this is the playlist for you.” You can find… Read more »

Welcome to our new reviewers: James and Kim!

Welcome to our new reviewers: James and Kim!

April 1, 2015 News 1

You may have noticed a few new reviewers popping up recently! After our call for applications in the winter, we received some great applicants and it was hard to narrow it down. But lucky for us (and you!) we’ve got two new reviewers, James and Kim, who will be joining the rotation. We’re excited to have them both! A little bit about them: I am an avid reader and audiobook listener, along with being a self-published author. I generally consider it a bad week if I only finish two books. I enjoy most genres, but I gravitate towards urban fantasy and… Read more »

You may notice things are going to start looking a bit different around here. We were currently in the process of a re-design, but I decided to switch our theme after some issues with the toggle boxes on our old theme. Unfortunately, this means things are looking a little ugly at the moment. Please pardon our dust while I work on it, we appreciate your patience!

March 12, 2014 Giveaways, News 2

Dear readers, it seems I’ve got a bit of the spring cleaning bug. (I know, I know, it’s still snowing in some places, but it’s MARCH.) In addition to cleaning out some old posts and drafts we’ve had cluttering things up, All Things Urban Fantasy is looking at switching web hosts, possible new designs, and just making some general improvements. In order to do that though, we’d like to know what our readers want! There isn’t much point in putting a ton of time and effort into something if it will drive you all away, or if you don’t care….

ATUF has just gotten Bigger! Meet Chris & Kate!

February 11, 2013 News 5

Remember back in December, when we posted this: That was when we started the hunt for a new blogger to join Julia, Kristina, and me here at All Things Urban Fantasy.  Since 2009 we’ve expanded our team every year, and we were due again.  The response was pretty fantastic, but unfortunately, we weren’t able to find one more person to join us.  We found two!  Both Chris (our first male reviewer) and Kate are big time Urban Fantasy lovers as well as fans of paranormal and speculative fiction in general.  Since we’re a picky bunch, we had them jump through… Read more »
