Editorial Reviews

'As the genre is presented here, we see a rich, full, experimental and long-lasting contribution to the ecology of fantasy. It's perfectly arranged and intentionally diverse, and there are no duds here like there are in some other anthologies. If you're new to the genre, this is an ideal place to start, so you begin with the multitude of ideas that count here. If you're a fan of the genre, this is like a reacquaintance, a reminder that there's more to urban fantasy than the vast numbers of women on motorcycles who kill bad things.'- New York Journal of Books (August 2011)'An essential book not only for longtime followers of such intriguing stories but those who thought fantasy only took place in the completely imagined worlds of J. R. R. Tolkien.'- Bookgasm 'An excellent collection of stories that showcases the best of urban fantasy (however you define it). Definitely a must-read!'- Interzone 'Every single story in this collection has been well chosen and polished brightly... . I highly recommend those with even a vague interest in urban fantasy add The Urban Fantasy Anthology to their collection.'- Green Man Review 'As thought-provoking as it was enjoyable.'- All Things Urban Fantasy 'This is one of the best reprint anthologies of the year in terms of literary value, and you certainly get more than your money's worth of good fiction.'- Locus
