Star-studded and comprehensive, this imaginative anthology brings a myriad of modern fantasy voices under one roof. Previously difficult for readers to discover in its new modes, urban fantasy is represented here in all three of its distinct styles—playful new mythologies, sexy paranormal romances, and gritty urban noir. Whether they feature tattooed demon-hunters, angst-ridden vampires, supernatural gumshoes, or pixelated pixies, these authors—including Patricia Briggs, Neil Gaiman, and Charles de Lint—mash-up traditional fare with pop culture, creating iconic characters, conflicted moralities, and complex settings. The result is starkly original fiction that has broad-based appeal and is immensely entertaining.

Anthology. I didn't read them all and I skipped a couple, so my rating is based only on the stories I read. 3.2 stars average. 1. A Bird that Whistles by Emma Bull. A music mentor with something different and a life lesson (?) I liked the story. 3-1/2 stars2. Make a Joyful Noise by Charles de Lint. ...

I read only The Coldest Girl in Coldtown and therefore my starring only applies to the aforementioned story.

3.0 The Urban Fantasy Anthology
I enjoyed most of what I read of this book, but thought it very funny that a book with an entire section for paranormal romance, including a freakin' essay, got it completely wrong. One out of the eight stories ("Seeing Eye" by Patricia Briggs) was paranormal romance. The rest strongly leaned toward...

4.0 The Urban Fantasy Anthology
Yeah, i enjoyed this when all's said and done. The first section of the book(mythic fiction) very much let down the second and third sections which really would have lifted this book into the 5 star realms had they been the whole of the book. Still, very good on the whole. In any anthology there are...
