The most interesting part of this definition, to me, is the phrase "subsequent changes in city management," as if a UF book might focus on a mayoral election, or corruption on the school board. Of course, maybe that is a UF book waiting to be written (maybe by someone in this class).
I thought I'd give a list of prompts for posts, to get you going. But please don't feel obliged to use one of the prompts if you've got a better idea.
List of optional prompts:
--your introduction to urban fantasy: what and when?
--favorite book, character, series, and why.
--what makes for good UF worldbuilding?
--UF names: is it annoying when they're weird or hard to pronounce?
--if you wrote a UF story, what would it be about?
--what are your feelings about genre? if something is genre, can it be literature?
--things in a UF book that turn you off
--comment on Twilight or Buffy or Harry Potter as progenitors or influences on current UF.
--vampires vs. werewolves? who wins?
--do you prefer your settings real or imagined?
