Every time I see or hear that word all I can think of is this: "This is a local shop, for local people", but it'd be nice to read some more genre fiction that is based around East Anglia
My best friend lives in the Fens, and as we drive about I often think that you have a limited amount of places to hide. Imagine what would happen if there's a zombie invasion!
I had my first visit to Scotland last year, and there's so many places where you could set a horror novel.
I think I have only read one book that has been set in Australia. I need to seek out more...
I visited Prague a few years ago and loved it, and then reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Lani Taylor made me wish that I could find more genre fiction that features Prague as a base.
Evil Leprechauns anyone?
7. Theme Parks
I'm a bit of a theme park nut. I was thinking about this last night, about Alton Towers in the U.K and how if it became abandoned it would be like an extreme version of Zombieland. Either that or expand the story of Hex and the Forest...
8. Dystopian/Speculative Fiction Set Outside of America
This may be my fault, but all the speculation fiction I have read - bar Cinder - has been set in a decimated America. The characters often wonder what happened to the rest of the world, as do I!
Sweden - Let the Right One is one of my favourite reads of all time and I thought that the surroundings described led to a heightened atmosphere. I'd really like to find some fiction in the same vein.
I've never read a book that has been set in Norway, and I think that's a shame because it sounds like such an interesting place. I wish it wasn't so expensive, as I would love to go there on holiday!
What was on you list this week? Or if you've read any books that are set in any of these places, do let me know! Recommendations are much appreciated!
