In this episode, author Mark Leslie returns and talks about his latest book in the Canadian Werewolf series Fright Nights, Big City, reintroducing us to Michael Andrews and his cast of intriguing characters in the continuing story of fighting the good fight and finding themselves along the way. Mark has created a fascinating subculture just below the surface we acknowledge and in doing so makes for a cast of wonderfully real characters that you care for, root for and feel for throughout the stories as their lives are revealed. This is the innovational storytelling that transcends the “ordinary” werewolf retelling into a modern look into society that is both fascinating and frightening, as it should be. Using current history and modern themes this series brings a team of “powered” entities together for common goals without their knowledge, interweaving hearts and minds in a wonderfully complex tapestry of modern tropes and themes.
It’s a fun book, a fun series and a wonderful fun conversation with Mark. Enjoy.http://www.scifisaturdaynight.com/podcast/talkcast514.mp3
