Magic City - Recent Spells, an anthology, edited by Paula Guran. 5*
published by Prime Books.
I don't generally feel the urge to read a lot of short stories, so if I can really recommend one I figure it has to be good.
This collection is a positive smorgasbord of Urban Fantasy. Hey, it includes work by Charles de Lint, Jim Butcher, Nancy Kress and Simon R Green. Obviously I was going to read it. And it delivered, every bit as well as one might expect it to - a series of good to great stories that will provide me with some new names I can look out for in novel form as well.
What more could one ask?
