Default Who else do you read?

My urban fantasy faves are obviously Kat, Kim Harrison, Kelley Armstrong, Richelle Mead, Jim Butcher and Rob Thurman, Patricia Briggs and Lilith Saintcrow. by no means exhaustive but those would all have to be in the top ten. I liked the early Anita Blakes, and the one with Edward as a lead, otherwise they became increasingly disapointing.
What about everyone else?

Anita Blake 1-9.
Dresden Files. (The Calderon series isn't urban, but it's still pretty good.)
Greywalker (obviously!)
Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter world. (yeah, they still have graphic sex - my big complaint with Anita - but at least Kenyon doesn't use sex to replace the plot)
Brigg's series with the were-coyote. (can't remember the name right now)
not fantasy, but I like J D Robb's In Death series.

There's others I'm forgetting since I'm far away from my library at the moment.

Anita Blake novels up through and including Obsidian Butterfly, the Dresden files, and Vicki Pettersson's Sign of the Zodiac novels.

Interesting. I haven't seen a lot of these names before.

I initially wondered about this fan forum, BN, but I think this could actually turn out to be a cool discussion.

Neil Gaiman's book Neverwhere is one of my favourites.

I must admit that despite several years' worth of running three different incarnations of my GURPS V:tM chronicle, I've never read any of the stuff that would be considered source material for the game, or anything else that might even remotely qualify as urban fantasy. I really should change that one of these days.

lots of the same stuff and a few new ones to try excellent.
I love Neil Gaiman MB and NEverwhere is one of my faves, also love Clive Barkers "Abarat" books whihc I think are Young Adult but are typically dark and bizarre.
Are you guys library thingers? I'd love to check out the rest of your reads and feed my addiction!

I liked Gaiman's Neverwhere, and to a lesser extent, American Gods. Butcher's Dresden Files are good. Haven't seen anyone mention Sergei Lukyanenko's Night Watch series. Also thought Terry Brooks's Knight of the Word series was worth reading.

A lot of my own writing is at least on the borderline of urban fantasy, if I ever get published I'll come back and list myself.

I forgot Mercedes Lackey's SERRAted Edge and Bedlam's Bard series, which I think were the first real 'urban fantasy' books I ever read. Elves driving racecars really cracked me up as a premise.

Hey, I remember those! I really enjoyed the SERRAted Edge books. Urban Fantasy owes a lot to Mercedes Lackey between that and the Diana Tregard novels.
