Slightly odd tense and grammar in general Possibly on purpose but it threw me offSea Warg Tanith Lee ★★★☆☆ “Now the boats put off from the west end of Sandbourne or at least they did so when the rest of Europe allowed it“What did we do? Did Brexit start in 2010 and I missed it?I could swear I read some novels written by her but for the life of me can‘t recall their titles or plot I only found a short story collection I DNFdHm interesting Hadn‘t expected that ending Well that was mean And Johnson is a very creepy characterAnd Bob's Your Uncle Chelsea uinn Yarbro ★★★☆☆Sad boy meets mysterious but cute black dog Promising beginning but didn‘t turn into much The Truth About Werewolves Lisa Tuttle ★★¾☆☆Unusual take on werewolves I disliked the female MC for her dishonesty She felt like a hypocrite to me especially after disrespecting the Chihuahua woman for „shopping“ and then doing the exact same thingWeredog of Bucharest Ian Watson ★★☆☆☆A murder investigation and a crime writer observing Ponderous overly explanatory superfluous details The author seemed very eager to show us little details of Romanian life perhaps trying to create atmosphere? Unsatisfying with a lame ending Innocent Gene Wolfe ★☆☆☆☆Weird Guy in prison tells a priest about his life The story only consists of his side of a dialogueNo Children No Pets Esther M Friesner ★☆☆☆☆Another odd one about a werewolf child of six living in Central Park Humorous writing I suppose Not my thing Country Mothers' Sons Holly Phillips ★☆☆☆☆When I started the slow moving very descriptive prose had me interested It never went anywhere though and I lost that little spark Suggestive but ultimately pointless Full Moon City is a nice collection of short stories about werewolves who have adapted to city life I've encountered many of the authors here before and some of them I esteem as important to modern sensibilities than sliced bread There were a few stories that were a dud for me and one in particular was disappointing but overall there are winners here The Truth About Werewolves by Lisa TuttleSet in modern day Houston this story concerns a lonely woman who puts an ad out in the paper looking for fellow werewolves to socialize She hooks up with one of the attendees for a one night stand and discovers 'the truth' about werewolves Sex isn't necessarily involved but dreaming is This is a strange opening piece as it's so disconcerting in its message Innocent by Gene Wolfe This short story related as a first person narrative of a psychopathic killer proclaiming his innocence from prison to an unknown father would have made an excellent opening selection for this anthology Our prisoner who recounts his youth and his discovery of the joys of eating raw meat is creepy as all get out His tales of his eating habits moving from spoiled meat to rats and other animals and finally to humans is sickening I loved this story Kitty Learns the Ropes by Carrie Vaughn This was a neat introduction for me to Kitty Norville the werewolf radio personality with her own urban fantasy book series that I keep meaning to get to Here Kitty accompanies a reporter to a boxing match to determine if a boxing champ is human or werewolf I liked this story and probably would have liked it better were I acuainted with Kitty No Children No Pets by Esther M Friesner I loved this story it was so freakin' weird and awesome It's about a strange werewolf girl who roams Central Park and claims to live in the Plaza Hotel About 7 years old she has memories of her father who was an American Communist offing himself after the arrest of the Rosenbergs She's been taken in by the local werewolf pack after she is turned by a strange bug eyed weredog and she goes around uoting bits of Marx and spouting communist nonsense in her 7 year old slang The ending is a great little happy twist for the poor downtrodden nanny and the girl Very nicely done Sea Warg by Tanith Lee This was probably the story that disappointed me the most because I am such a huge fan of Lee's I'll leave it at that Country Mothers' Sons by Holly Phillips Here's another sad and lonely werewolf tale but in a different way from the opening piece by Tuttle where the weres are looking for soul mates Here we see the aftereffects of war on farming communities and what it looks like for widows and orphaned sons to move from country to city and try to adapt to a strange new life The only mention of wolves comes at the end when wolf song is heard Another desolate piece A Most Unusual Greyhound by Mike ResnickProbably my favorite story in the entire collection Resnick delivers a comic piece about a mafia bookie of a lovesick Mexican werewolf pretending to be a greyhound Very slick very cool The Bitch by PD CacekThis is another great piece an awesome little story about a bitch ex girlfriend stalker who finally gets her comeuppance when the new girlfriend decides that enough is enough The Aarne Thompson Classification Revue by Holly Black Being a werewolf means that when you take off your clothes you're still not really naked You have to take off your skin tooI really loved this piece too Again there's a feeling of isolation as a young weregirl moves through life in the city imitating humans and trying to get by While waitressing she auditions for and receives a part in a musical production The inital performance is literally showstopping Weredog of Bucharest by Ian WatsonA British writer travels to Romania for inspiration and hangs out with the local artsy fartsy crowd and a police inspector He rides along for a murder investigation learns a lesson in hidden elevator doors and gets the werewolve transformation from the local crone This one was okay I was a Middle Age Werewolf by Ron GoulartWe move from the Balkans to Hollywood to meet a Beverly Hills screenwriter recently fired from his latest writing gig fighting off a vicous ex and learning that he's growing a full fur pelt There's a comic voice to this that mixes Curb Your Enthusiasm dry sarcasm with Beverly Hills Chihuahua camp that's fun to read The ditzy daytime actress daughter who ends up responsible for the whole mess makes a great ending Kvetchula's Daughter by Darrell SchweitzerThis one's cute and fast paced The daughter of course is a liberal minded daughter of Jewish vampire loving parents who return from their Romanian vacation in coffins having been turned into vamps They in turn uickly turn their daughter's retarded hippy boyfriend into the family Renfeld and expect her to become a minion Except of course she meets a local werewolf named Heinrich Wolfgang and falls in puppy love Expect the cubs to be raised Jewish This one's cute And Bob's Your Uncle by Chelsea uinn YarbroI love Yarbro and this short delivers for me A nine year old boy gets a shot at vengeance against his mom's abusive boyfriend when meets a werewolf in the park Very nicely done The Bank Job by Gregory FrostA bank heist goes south when one of the customers is a werewolf A decent story La Lune T'Attend by Peter S BeagleProbably the longest piece in this collection and a solid close to the book Here two aging Cajun werwolves with family homes and grandchildren must come to terms with an evil werewolf they thought they killed and buried forty years ago I really liked this one Hummmm just read the book description Celebrated fantasy author PETER S BEAGLE tells a chillingly lyrical story of three Louisiana loup garoux locked into a deadly dance of deathHoly COWA deadly dance of death stupid me thinking that a deadly dance could be something as a deadly dance of sunshine or cute bunnies nooooooooooo a deadly dance is of what????? Death people are payed to write this kind of book description? I got this just for the Kitty story and I'm getting caught up on books I have before the last book comes out I skimmed some of the other stories but none caught my attentionKitty Learns the Ropes very typical Kitty I liked it but it didn't really add anything to the series It's one that could be skipped and nothing missed I only read the Carrie Vaughn story set in the world of Kitty It is a short story dealing with a character from her last book Very cute and classic Kitty A reporter drags Kitty into confronting a boxer she suspects might be a werewolf Nothing special but a nice uick read to entertain fans of the series 15 short stories about werewolves and other were animals If it hadn’t been for the Kitty story I probably wouldn’t have read this but there was 1 other story made it worthwhile1 The Truth about Werewolves by Lisa Tuttle 2 stars A human female wants to meet a werewolf for a boyfriend so starts a lycanthropy support group2 Innocent by Gene Wolfe 2 stars First person inner narrative Probably good story but didn’t grab me3 Kitty Learns the Ropes by Carrie Vaughn Kitty Norville 44 4 stars This is the book I got this to read Kitty is asked to determine if an unusually uick healing boxer is supernatural I agree with Kitty about boxing People hitting others is not fun So I read this fast4 No Children No Pets by Esther M Friesner 1 star Life through the eyes of a 6 year old werewolf in Central part NYC Too weird5 Sea Warg by Tanith Lee 3 stars After retiring to a seaside town a man observes another man’s unusual nightly activities A little wordy but interesting Didn’t like the ending6 Country Mothers' Sons by Holly Phillips 2 Stars Something about mothers during the war worrying about the sons Too odd7 A Most Unusual Greyhound a Harry the Book ?
