Nope to all three I'm afarid, so many authors so little time. Plus I've become spoiled on supernatural detectives ever since I picked up Harrry Dresden for the first time. Anything else has to fight twice as hard to make t it to my shopping bag, or at least fight dirty

Y'know... from the rest of your comments, I'm betting you're going to love Remy Chandler when you get to reading Tom Sniegoski's novella in Mean Streets...

*Sigh* Sadly my copy of Mean Streets has been waylayid by nerdowells and I shall have to wait at least a day or two longer for it. Now I'm really curious though thats three stories in it I want to read.

With a name like Remy though I'd say you've made a safe bet for me to like him.

For the record you were pretty dead on, I do like Remy enough to be interested in his seires.

Though not at all familiar with Dresden or Greywalker....

I like Mercedes Lackey, I really wish she would retackle Diana Tregarde and deal some more with modern supernatural investigations.

Is anything relatively close to another ML group of Books the Elemental Masters?


Also Anyone read Suzanna Clarks Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrel?

or is that too off/early for this kind of style?

Lackey only ever did the three Tregarde books, which I think were probably my first foray into "urban fantasy". I think she and Rosemary Edgehill have even stopped writing in the Bedlam's Bard set, almost as though the more urban fantasy that has been written, the less they want to.

Somewhere around there's a long and rather heart-rending post by Ms. Lackey about why she stopped writing the Diana Tregarde novels. It's pretty grim and with the associations she has for that series, I'm not surprised she hasn't gone back to it. I was a bit surprised the old ones were reissued, but I guess that was really up to her publisher, not her.

I'm working through the Elemental Masters series at the moment and I really like it. Her twisted takes on fairy tales are wonderful. Jim C. Hines has a new book out that takes off from the post-Happily Ever After ending of Cinderella, so if you like the new twist on fairytales approach, you might want to check out his new book, THE STEPSISTER SCEME. It's traditional, not urban, fantasy, but it's loads of fun.
