Down These Strange Streets

Down These Strange Streets - Simon R. Green, George R.R. Martin, Gardner R. Dozois, Steven Saylor I loved this collection of short stories, which I actually "read" as a book on CD. As stated in the opening essay - there's been a lot of "urban fantasy" written recently where vampires and werewolves are alive, well and living in St. Louis or Toronto (only the fae seem to like LA) and the bump in the night really is created by ghosts, ghouls, goblins. In addition to short visits to the worlds created by known favorite authors (particularly the one by Patricia Briggs), I was introduced to several new authors where my next impulse was to go see what my local library held. I'm planning to copy the story introductions and add them to the stack of books I haven't gotten to yet.
