>What is "Midnight Nation" all about?
It's a contemporary story that doesn't really fit most categories...maybe magic
realism comes closest, dark fantasy maybe...it sets some of the tropes of the
dark fantasy genre against a modern setting, with a police officer on a quest
to recover something taken from him, a search which shows him a side of the
country usually not seen, the hidden doors and secret places only glimpsed out
of the corner of the eye....
