‘Maps of London’

This week’s Incomparable is a nice, spoiler-light tour through urban fantasy novels set in London, including works by Neil Gaiman, Paul Cornell, and Ben Aaronovitch. I got some great reading suggestions out of it and I think you will, too.

London is a thriving modern metropolis, but beneath its streets and behind its doors are ancient, magical secrets. In this episode, a group of (North) Americans discuss some of our favorite London-based urban fantasy novels. This is a spoiler-light episode, so listen in and get ready to add a whole bunch of books to your to-read list. Plus, what are we reading?

Also this week on The Incomparable:

  • Another installment in our D&D podcast, Total Party Kill.

  • The Hollywood Reporter’s Tim Goodman gave me his list of what shows are worth watching right now, night by night. Saturday is for streaming.

  • Comedian Jordan Cooper joined Scott McNulty on Random Trek to talk about that episode where Captain Picard has to be like Bruce Willis in “Die Hard,” except with less swearing and broken glass and shooting, and on the Enterprise.
