Bookburners

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.

Andrea Philips on writing Bookburners S3E3: “Hard Bargain”

Because that's the other side of thrifty writing: on the one hand, you need to use the story threads you have, so they don't go to waste. But just like a diligent farmer saving seeds for next year's crops, serial writers also have to look to the future.
