Book Description

DANGER LURKS IN THE HEART OF THE CITY . . . BUT NOT ALWAYS WHERE YOU EXPECT IT.

From New York to Los Angeles to Bucharest, fifteen never-before-published tales by some of the world’s finest fantasy and horror writers celebrate the newest incarnations of an age-old terror that strikes when the moon is full . . . the werewolf. No longer confined to the forests, these modern monsters can be found in places you frequent every day—and never before thought to fear.

CARRIE VAUGHN’s popular werewolf radio host Kitty Norville is drawn into a controversy as to whether it’s fair to ban lycanthropy from professional sports. New York’s famous Plaza Hotel is the setting for ESTHER M. FRIESNER’s tale of one very grisly little girl, while Beverly Hills may never quite recover from RON GOULART’s middle-aged Hollywood screenwriter who falls prey to a most unusual problem. Celebrated fantasy author PETER S. BEAGLE tells a chillingly lyrical story of three Louisiana loup garoux locked into a deadly dance of death. Plus many more biting tales from award-winning authors:

HOLLY BLACK • P.D. CACEK • GREGORY FROST • TANITH LEE

HOLLY PHILLIPS • MIKE RESNICK • DARRELL SCHWEITZER • LISA TUTTLE

IAN WATSON • GENE WOLFE • CHELSEA QUINN YARBRO


Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Weird Tales co-editor (and occasional PW reviewer) Schweitzer and anthology powerhouse Greenberg offer up an uneven collection of urban werewolf tales written by some of fantasy's biggest names. Given the theme, Schweitzer's own contribution, the humorous vampire-centric piece Kvetchula's Daughter, is out of place. Far stronger is Holly Black's The Aarne-Thompson Classification Revue, in which a werewolf actress explores the power of transformation. Tanith Lee's Sea Warg focuses on a more amphibious shape-shifter, while Esther Friesner's No Children, No Pets is cleverly executed and entertaining. Very few other stories rise above satisfactory or mildly memorable. For every tale that pushes the boundaries, two more are content to go through the motions, making this a fairly average affair.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good choice if you like werewolves! October 24, 2010
Format:Paperback
It's no secret that I love anthologies! And what could be better than a book full of werewolf stories? Almost nothing! One of the reasons I love anthologies so much is that I can revisit old favorites as well as discover new writers, and this collection was no exception. There are stories from some of my favorites, like Holly Black and Carrie Vaughn, and stories from new-to-me writers that I want to further explore.

Rather than dissect each story in this collection, I just want to touch on a few. "I Was a Middle-Age Werewolf" by Ron Goulart was an amusing look at a down on his luck Hollywood writer who finds himself cursed with being a werewolf. I also got a kick out of Darrell Schweitzer's "Kvetchula's Daughter", about a nice Jewish girl whose life is "ruined" when her parents become vampires. What can I say, I like wacky humor!

In a different vein, "No Children, No Pets" by Esther M. Friesner is about a six year old city werewolf who lives in Central Park. Don't think I've ever read a story where the main character was a child werewolf before. Or would that be a werewolf cub? Very original!

My two favorite stories were "Kitty Learns the Ropes" by Carrie Vaughn and "The Bitch" by P.D. Cacek. I've read several books in the Kitty series, so it was nice to see her again. And while I haven't read Cacek before, this story about an old girlfriend who refuses to let go was really good! Loved the ending!

All in all, I think this was a really nice collection of werewolf stories. Some were not as strong as others, but it's a good anthology. The good stories outweigh the weaker contenders, and the authors are all talented writers. Definitely recommend this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm going to throw this out there... July 4, 2010
By Tejana
Format:Paperback
...feel free to throw it back if you have to, but I think this is the best modern werewolf anthology on the market. Yep. I'm not one of those harsh, crazy people, but I do believe that monsters should be monsters. Here recently, wolves and vamps have been too human. This book does a great job of uncovering the duality of man vs. wolf and how that plays out in the human world. This is a must buy book for anyone in to Urban Fantasy. The first few stories had me saying aloud "WHAT THE EFF" and "Damn that's good" and that's saying something...seeing as how I'm an adult, Southen woman raised in a Pentecostal church. It's the very best of the darkness of humanity. Go ahead and thank me now.

4.0 out of 5 stars dark urban fantasy collection March 12, 2010
Format:Paperback
Full Moon City contains fourteen dark werewolf and one leaning more towards vampire (Darrell Schweitzer's "Kvetchula's Daughter") urban fantasies written by some of the genre's most renowned authors. None are clinkers, but only a few can be considered as super. For the most part the environs are places not anticipated in werewolf tales such as the Plaza Hotel in Esther M. Friesner's where "No Children, No Pets" prevail but six years old Emmeline lives next door in Central Park; at Houston Community College where the Lycanthropy Support Group meets in "The Truth About Werewolves" by Lisa Tuttle and Carrie Vaughn's Kitty returns to Vegas in "Kitty learns the Ropes". More typical locales are used too but less frequently like in Ian Watson's "The Weredog of Bucharest"; the Bayou is the setting for Peter S. Beagle's "La Lune D'Attend" and Hollywood in "I Was a Middle Aged Werewolf" by Ron Goulart. In my opinion the best contribution is Holly Black's "The Aarne-Thompson Classification Revue" as the werewolf actress looks deeply at conversion. Overall this is a very good collection worth reading only by fans of the modern take on the werewolf mythos

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 1/2 stars 10 very good to excellant stories April 23, 2010
Format:Paperback
This is an anthology with 13 supernatural themed longish short stories. Three are duds but the rest are excellent. Some of the best like Tanith Lee's WARG (not what you think; acronym Weird Animal Reported Generally), the bookie and the bank heist are tongue in cheek or humorous.

Over all an excellent read.
