Weather Alert: Tornado eating titans on the loose in Oklahoma.

There might not be much upon the open, wind-swept planes of Oklahoma—but magic, like life, finds a way to thrive nevertheless. In this week’s episode the Team is literally blown away when they touch down in a tiny country town, utterly destroyed by horrifying monsters the locals call Tornado Eaters. The town is past saving but the threat remains—it will take all the Society can throw at them and even that might not be enough. Readers, and Sal, will finally get their first look at just what heat Team One is packing . . . but quickly learn that words wreak more havoc than even the most imaginative weapons.

This episode is brought to you by team-writer Brian Francis Slattery who once again brings the Weird, this time to the West—but it’s not all fun and monsters in Oklahoma and the Society’s toll of life and limb is rising.  

"Bookburners is sheer enormous fun! Energetic, intense, vivid prose. More soon please."

--Naomi Novik, author of Uprooted and the New York Times bestselling Temeraire series

"Bookburners is the breathless, hallucinogenic love child of Torchwood, the Librarians, and the Laundry Files.  More soon, please."

--Ian Tregillis, author of The Mechanical and Bitter Seeds

"Bookburners is an exciting new take on urban fantasy. Love the premise, love the characters, love the unique (and sometimes wonderfully disturbing) spin on the dangers of magic!"

--Cassandra Rose Clarke, author of The Assassins Curse

"Bookburners has everything I want from episodic storytelling - strong writing, a rich premise, and memorable characters that will keep me coming back week after week." 

--Mike Underwood, author of the Ree Reyes Geekomancy series

"Bookburners satisfies my craving for pulpy, demonic chaos with sharp writing, deliciously sinister magic, stellar black humor, and a kick-ass cast. The serialized story perfectly suits a sorcerer’s codex of baddies while the plucky Sal digs for deeper truths in her work with the Black Archives squad."

--Lindsay Smith, author of the Sekret Series
