Fantasy writers who are also law-enforcement workers discuss how fantasy fiction portrays law enforcement and compare those practices to real-world law enforcement. They talk about where fiction differs from reality and discuss what works in stories and what is really fantasy. In discussing such works as The City and The City (China Mieville), Finch (Jeff VanderMeer), London Falling (Paul Cornell), and Servant of Empire (Raymond Feist), they contrast the real and the fantasy worlds of law enforcement.
