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

Review:

"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." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Move over, vampires. Make room for the hottest creatures in fantasy: werewolves. "Full Moon City" features contributions from bestselling fantasy luminaries who offer spellbinding stories of the contemporary lycanthrope.
