With Thanksgiving fast approaching, we often find ourselves becoming more introspective, reflecting on the people and things for which we are thankful.

The following is an interview with Ben Aaronovitch on Lies Sleeping, the latest novel within the Rivers of London Series. In this interview, Fanbase Press Editor-in-Chief Barbra Dillon chats with Aaronovitch about the inspiration behind the story, his creative process in returning to the Rivers of London world, what he hopes that readers will take away from the story, and more!

Black Badge by Matt Kindt, Tyler Jenkins, and Hilary Jenkins is just getting warmed up. Gone is the episodic feel of the first three issues, as the hyper-advanced boy scout soldiers begin to unravel a mystery that has already begun to shake their foundations as a no-questions-asked team. With some serious revelations come larger questions and an expanded universe of characters.

Good sci-fi can take real-world issues and put them in a different context to shine a new light on them.  With society becoming increasingly automated, the latest Doctor Who episode, “Kerblam!,” focuses on how that would affect the workplace.

Upon finishing The Flutter Collection, you will be filled with a million questions, and none of them will be, “Why did I read this?” You will have questions, though - questions that you will not likely be able to answer. You will need to reach out to others for answers. Thus, you will learn and be made better for it. You will be challenged and be made to overcome these challenges. That is why you read it. To accept others, and be yourself, accepted.

She is a feral child. He is a broken old man. They brandish hot blades. They make short work of nasty, bearded vikings. They take no notice of the blood left behind. Together, they are Sword Daughter.

In the final pages of The Vexation of Vampires, Penny’s engagement with Peter fell apart when they realized they could not compromise on one of their most important differences: whether to have children. Author Chrys Cymri forces her protagonist to cope with her sorrow over the lost bond while torn between her duties to Earth and Lloegyr.  A dead merwoman in an orca pool at a Sea World-like facility, a stolen submarine assignment from Sue Harkness, and providing spiritual guidance to both Skyler and Clyde give the priest plenty to do, and learning how to manage multiple commitments may just be part of Penny’s post-break up journey.

You can only withhold information from the audience for so long before they start to become impatient. Cullen Bunn, the writer of Cold Spots and many other exceptional horror genre books on the market, was toeing this line while dancing around answers in issue three of Cold Spots. Those questions are answered in issue four, and now the heroes are left with choices to be made. That, to me, is the most interesting part of story. Yeah, a mystery is good, but if it gets in the way of characters being forced to make life-or-death decisions in the moment, then it’s not going to be nearly as exciting.
