Rucksack Universe Series FAQ

Really, another urban fantasy series? So, I have to read these in order, right?

Nope. Like you, I sometimes get some serious Sequential Series Fatigue (ask your doctor about SSF). That's why I've always planned for all Rucksack Universe series contemporary fantasy stories to inter-relate but be fully enjoyed individually.


You can read the fantasy novellas and fantasy novels of the Rucksack Universe in any order you like, rest assured that you will have an enjoyable read of fantasy and adventure fiction. There is no set reading order, and you don't have to make sure you've read Book A to know what the hell's going on in Book Z.


Like you, I have a limited appetite for sequential series fantasy (other than, say, Harry Potter or Nightwatch, both of which I'm about to re-read for the fourth time). I envision the adventure and fantasy stories of the Rucksack Universe to be more like the 30+ novels of Terry Pratchett's best-selling Discworld series: a varied cast in the same world, with titles that can build on each other but are made to be enjoyed independently.


What's an urban fantasy novella?

An urban fantasy novella is the middle child in between short stories and novels. A typical contemporary fantasy novella is longer and more complex than a short story, but shorter and not as complex as a novel. Novellas are great quick reads, because the author can give you more story while keeping things simple.


Examples of famous novellas include Ernest Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea, Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, George Orwell's Animal Farm, Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness and Stephen King's The Body (which the movie Stand by Me is based on).


How long is a novella?

Definitions of exact length vary. At this point, any Rucksack Universe adventure and fantasy stories billed as fantasy novellas will be between 7,501-40,000 words (or 30-160 paperback pages) in length.
