The best urban fiction books for readers of all ages and experience levels are out there, but the genre is often overlooked by the wider literary community.
In fact, the first time I ever started reading urban fiction, I found the genre “too esoteric for most of my friends”.
But now, thanks to a slew of recent urban fiction titles, I have an easy spot to start exploring.
These titles, from titles such as A Night To Remember by Elizabeth Bear, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty by Lauren Beukes and The Adventures of the Green Dragon by Nick Kyme, will be the first of their kind in the UK.
And they’ll all be worth reading in the end.
There are a ton of great urban fiction and horror books out there these days.
If you’re looking for something new to sink your teeth into, and the right author to pick up your urban fiction novel, there’s something for everyone.
But if you want something to keep you up at night, or want to see what urban fiction is like in a different context, here are the top 10 urban fiction authors for the genre.1.
Elizabeth Bear and Lauren BeukeUrban fiction has long been the domain of authors who’ve had experience writing and producing stories about people in urban settings.
And it seems to work.
In the last 10 years, authors such as Elizabeth Bear have written more than 200 books, with more than 80 of them being urban fiction.
Bear, who’s also a writer for the BBC, is one of the few authors to have been published in all five major UK newspapers, and is a frequent presence at the literary festivals and conventions.
She has also written a novel, a novel for the stage and a number of short stories, all published in English and published in several other languages.
Bear has a long, successful career as a novelist and a screenwriter.
She was awarded the 2017 BBC Fiction Award for her novel, The Green Dragon, which was nominated for an Independent Book Awards nomination for best non-fiction and best fiction short stories.2.
Lauren Beuchans bookThe author of the recent novel The Adventures, A Night to Remember, is an author I’ve been a fan of for a long time, and has a great voice for a woman in urban fiction (although I can see her doing a bit of crossover with female authors like Lauren Beufans and Yann LeCun, both of whom have been a big influence on me).
She’s also one of those authors who, while being primarily a female author, has been a huge influence on the modern writing community.
She’s one of only two women on the shortlist for the 2016 American Book Award for Best Female Writer.
Beuchans is also a co-author of the forthcoming novel The Secret Lives of Walter and Lauren Mitty.
This is her second novel, with a long list of short fiction to her name.
It’s the first in the series and the third in the Blacklist series, with both books coming out in 2018.
The Blacklist is a popular genre in the US, and it’s one that’s very much alive and well in UK urban fiction: its stories are often described as “literary fiction”.3.
Nick Kymes The Secret World of Walter by Nick TymsThe author, who was also a big inspiration for me, is a writer who I’ve always found interesting, and whose work has a strong, rich sense of place and history.
He’s also been a prolific writer for TV and film, including his short story collection The Black List.
Tyms was the editor of the BBC’s Science Fiction and Fantasy Magazine from 2009 to 2013.
He was also the editor-in-chief of Science Fiction magazine from 1996 to 2008.
He is a former editor of Fantasy and Science Fiction magazines.4.
Elizabeth HolmesUrban fiction writer and novelist Elizabeth Holmes is best known for her novels The Red House and The City of the Dead, which are both in the best-sellers list at the moment.
She also co-created the short fiction anthology The Blacklists with Philip Reeve and co-wrote The Secret History of the City of London with Chris Priestley, who is also an author and a former Science Fiction editor.
The Secret Worlds of Walter has been adapted for TV by The Blacklisted team, and will be released in 2018, which should be the year of The Secret Adventures of Walter, as well as The Black Lists new series, The City at the End of the World.5.
Lauren Boesch The Secret House by Lauren BueschLoved by readers, loved by writers, and praised by critics, the novel The House is set in the fictional town of Waddington in the 1950s.
In this series, which follows the adventures of a young woman named Claire who discovers her father’s secret, she discovers that her father was a police detective who went undercover and had
