Urban Fantasy

Nillu also writes urban fantasy under the pen name N. Z. Nasser. Her story ‘The Tombstone Man and the Coming of the Tigress’ can be found in UnCommonly Good (2017).

She loves the balance that the two strands bring to her work. Literary fiction is often about surviving the world. Urban fantasy is about saving it. It’s atmospheric, magical and escapist, and a whole heap of fun to write.

She’s working on a series now that you’re going to love, and it’ll be ready later this year. We can’t wait to share it with you.

‘The Tombstone Man and the Coming of the Tigress’ originally appeared in UnCommon Origins (June 2016) and UnCommonly Good (April 2017). It is now an e-book in its own right.

Jermaine Wyoming lives in a cemetery, isolated from the world, obsessed with the idea of replacing the memories of his harrowing childhood with new ones.

Lana Norse is seventeen years old and suffers from a debilitating disease that promises to rob her of her future.

Jermaine and Lana’s fates intertwine as the boundaries of their worlds blur and it becomes difficult to tell what’s real from what is not.
