These masterful tales do not involve werewolves, butr a wonderfully diverse assortment of creatures including a serpent, a child, an elephant--even a right-wing Republican. Blending elements of fantasy, mystery, comedy and mythology, these extraordinary tales take lycanthropy into an entirely new realm.

Highlights for me were Shariann Lewitt's "Sharewere" (where the shapechanging involves artificial intelligence!) and Greg Cox's "... So Tears Run To A Predestined End." In general, I especially enjoyed the more humorous stories. Two stori

“The Way Things Ought to Be” by Adam- Troy Castro is about a liberal who gets bitten by a reactionary and becomes a hater.

After fifteen years working in NY publishing, Laura Anne became a full-time writer, with more than twenty novels under her various bylines, including the SILVER ON THE ROAD, the Nebula Award-nom
