Urban Fantasy


My definition: fantasy elements in a real world setting. Not the old fashioned, parallel universes/worlds kind. No, I mean vampires, werewolves and ghosts watching HBO. I had thoughts about trying to divide this into Supernatural mystery, but let’s face it–most of these books have some sort of mystery angle.
