Ben Aaronovitch’s urban fantasy novel Rivers Of London has been optioned for television…
GUYS!!!! This is gonna be amazing. If you haven’t read it, Rivers of London is an Urban Fantasy that reads like a cross between Neverwhere and the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. It’s set in present-day London, and is about a young police constable who is recruited (more or less) to the Men In Black. The author is a former Doctor Who writer, and purposefully set out to write the series with a diverse cast. It’s awesome, particularly if you’re familiar with and/or interested in the history and geography of London.
Basically, it’s a somewhat similar genre and premise to the Dresden Files series, but completely different in tone because the whole thing isn’t seething with sexism, racism and homophobia. It’s what you (I) wanted from the Dresden Files, but didn’t get.
