Naked City: Tales of Urban Fantasy

Naked City: Tales of Urban Fantasy - Peter S. Beagle, Nathan Ballingud, Elizabeth Bear, Ellen Datlow Hit or miss, like most such anthologies. It felt as if either they packed the good stories toward the front of this one, or else I got bored with it toward the end. However, many of the stories in this collection veered more toward horror than urban fantasy, which is not really my cup of tea.

The most memorable stories to me were the entries from Jim Butcher, Delia Sherman, Ellen Kushner, and Patricia Briggs. The story by Melissa Marr also piqued my interest, since I understand it's supposed to be a setup for a full novel.
