What is “Suburban Fantasy”?

We’re all familiar with “urban fantasy” — the gritty, often violent intersection of the real world with creatures from our darkest imaginings. And as entertaining as urban fantasy can be both to read and to write, I thought it was time to throw something new into the mix.

So I’ve coined the term “suburban fantasy” for the stories I’ll be sharing with you through Camden Park Press — stories that blur the boundaries between the real world and the fantastical, but are lighter and less edgy than its urban cousins. And, hopefully, a little more fun.

Whether it’s the exploits of the teenage offspring of the Gods walking the halls of Olympus High, or Faerie Folk moving to the Real World and trying to cope with jobs, neighbors, and mortgages, I hope you enjoy the glimpse into the lighter side of life as I see it.

Because really, we never do know who — or what — is our neighbor!

Just Another Day in Suburbia - a novel by Elizabeth Ann PierceJust Another Day in Suburbia

A suburban fantasy novel

Forest Glen, Pennsylvania. A peaceful suburban neighborhood where nothing unusual ever happened — until the day Masaman the Troll moved out from under his bridge and bought the old fixer-upper on Oak Tree Lane.

Now Goblins swarm the neighbor’s front porch and kitchen windowsill in search of freshly baked pies and cookies; a cat-food eating Zombie canvasses the residents, looking for landscaping and interior decorating opportunities; and a Dwarf takes time out from Poker Night to investigate the rash of burglaries that suddenly plague the neighborhood.

And the Neighborhood Watch has no idea who it should be watching.

Available on Kindle, Nook, and Smashwords. $4.99

A “Suburbia” short novel

The Goblins emerged from the Faerie Realm into the Real World in the most unexpected manner: drifting in on the breeze, settling on rooftops, in the trees, in the road.

In a world filled with unfamiliar dangers, Skeezix the Goblin discovers the key to the Goblins’ survival in the unlikeliest of places: a discarded cup of diet cola.

A “Suburbia” short story

When the tall, red-haired woman walked into Grady’s Bar and Grill on that dark and stormy night, newly-licensed private investigator, Pinkerton Dwarf knew at a glance that she wasn’t the date he was waiting for. He didn’t know that Monica Renault would turn out to be his first official client, or that his date had gone awry before it even began.

And Then I Woke Up Dead - a short novel by Elizabeth Ann PierceAnd Then I Woke Up Dead

A “Suburbia” short novel

Muzak knew about zombies – he’d seen them on the streets, doing the menial jobs they’d been created for, jobs no living person wanted to do. He just never expected to find himself shuffling along as one of the walking dead, anti-freeze coursing through his veins. To be honest, he’d had higher expectations of the after-life – at the very least, a better wardrobe.

Available on Kindle, Nook, and Smashwords. $2.99

Available on Kindle, Nook, and Smashwords. $0.99



  1. I’d like a sneak preview! I’ve often wondered why I’m in suburbia. Either surrounded by mediocrity, or perhaps there’s more going on behind all those doors. It’s a bit too neat, too quiet.

  2. Thanks, Casey!
    I had so much fun building this world and getting to know Masaman and his friends that I’m in the process of writing more “Suburbia” stories – some of the “what happened before” incidents as short-stories/novellas (we’ll see how long they turn out to be!). The next novel is also in development, as I frantically scribble notes on my whiteboard.
    I hope you enjoy “Just Another Day in Suburbia” – and if you do, that you tell your friends about it!
