bookshelves: fantasy
Recommended for: purist readers of weird fantasy short stories
Read in July, 2008

I thought Urban fantasy meant more modern fantasy. Fantastical things happening in today's setting. But apparently not, urban fantasy can mean fantasy happening in a city setting, and not necessarily a modern city. The first three stories are very traditional, old-fashioned fantasy, which I found very boring, so I skipped over them. I really like Somnambulist by David Schwartz. It was an odd little tale. I also liked The Bumblety's Marble by Cat Rambo and Tromies; A Tale of the City Imperishable by Jay Lake. I didn't read all of the stories. The ones I did read were pretty weird.
