Bookburners continues with the team searching for a new purpose after their previous mission is rendered impossible. And in A Most Dangerous Woman, new information about Margaret’s faked death gives a glimpse of her real killer.
Magic is real, and hungry—trapped in ancient texts and artifacts, only a few who discover it survive to fight back. Detective Sal Brooks is a survivor. Freshly awake to just what dangers are lurking, she joins a Vatican-backed black-ops anti-magic squad: Team Three of the Societas Librorum Occultorum. Together they stand between humanity and magical apocalypse. Some call them the Bookburners. They don’t like the label.

Is this on? Okay, now that I've got everyone's attention we have a bit of news we wanted to share.
The Bookburners thought they had seen some strange things in their time, but as they watch London become a hellscape, its own buildings rising up and rampaging through the streets, they realize it’s only going to get stranger from here on out.
I enjoyed writing this episode for its sense of foreshadowing, the way it lays down a few basic principles that we planned to use for the rest of the season.
Serial fiction is a wonderful weird beast, and hasn’t been the dominant medium of fiction for a while—but whether we realize it or not, we have a ton of experience with serial storytelling to be drawn upon when we come to write serials.
But while the members of Team Three dash around the world (and beyond it) as a matter of course, the most traveling I generally do for the series is an annual flight east for our story summits. I thought it was cool that Andrea had done to research to reference a real artifact, but I figured a picture on the Internet would be the extent of my involvement with the Punic Egg. I didn’t think I’d actually, you know, lay eyes on the damn thing. Until this summer, when where should I find myself but… London
The original concept for this episode as proposed (...by me) during the summit was “Spooky Forest.”
This is the 10th episode in the third season of Bookburners, a 13-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Andrea Phillips.
At this stage in writing Bookbuners, each of us on the writing team has a particular kind of episode that we’re considered to be good at.
