I brought this story together after a four week research contract for the Galactic Council of Scientific Exploration gave me unprecedented access to their files, both personal and corporate.

The Urban Hunter

City reflected in a woman's eye

Urban fantasy (UF) as a sub-genre arose in the 1980s and presented an alternative view of the heroic female protagonist. As UF has developed, a new archetype has emerged – the urban hunter. Defined by its situation in the urban environment this archetype draws on elements of gendered bodies, hybridization, the other and narrative purpose to create a unique character.
