    four excellent paranormal urban fantasy noirs

    ¿The Warrior¿ by Jim Butcher. Harry Dresden knows he has faced some death defying strange cases, but fears this time with the Michael scenario he may not make it out even dead let alone alive. <BR/>----<BR/>¿The Difference a Day Makes¿ by Simon R. Green. In the Nightside, the femme fatale enters the private investigative office of John Taylor to obviously hire him. However, her request is off the chart, which says a lot with what the detective has seen and done; she needs John to find her lost memory.<BR/>----<BR/>¿The Third Death of the Little Clay Dog¿ by Kat Richardson. The case was expected to be easy and fast so the Greywalker wonders why she is in such dire straits as nothing went right starting with the attacks from the grave of the raging vengeful late Harper Blaine<BR/>----<BR/>¿Noah¿s Orphans¿ by Thomas E. Sniegoski. He is hired to uncover who killed the centuries old Noah; for a fallen angel like Remy Chandler the case seems simple, but he will soon learn once again as he did when he fell from grace that there is nothing straightforward under heaven and earth.<BR/>----<BR/>These four paranormal urban fantasy noirs occur in the author¿s renowned ¿world¿ starring ultra famous lead characters. Each tale is well written feeling complete even in the novella format and complement one another as the writers rose to the occasion of expectations from their fan base. An obvious must for readers of any of the four paranormal sagas, newcomers will appreciate the introductions to these literary legends as they investigate the otherworldly MEAN STREETS.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    Nice Collection

    This collection makes it easy to get a brief glimpse into the worlds of four different characters. Personally, I bought it to read about Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden. What I found was a book that had three other lead characters with great appeal.

    I recommend it to those who like a bit of magic/arcane in their mystery.

    Fast paced, exciting and action packed

    Each story was unique, dramatic and a quick read. I could not put this book down, each story was amazing. If you enjoy stories about supernatural characters with a strong plot and likeable characters this is the book for you. If you have a short attention span, even better because each story is action packed and flies by quickly.

    Mean Streets - Tells it all

    This is a great collection of short stories. I was familiar with some of the writers and enjoyed their latest shorts. The rest of the writers in this collection were new to me and I'm looking forward to finding other books by them. Kat Richardson continues the tales of GreyWalker series and it is fun. Thomas Sniegoski presents a chilling future where one's desires can be met at any price. Overall I read these stories and was really entertained.

    Really enjoyable

    A collection of stories by a group of authors that I recommend checking out. This book gives a taste of each of these authors main characters and I think, after reading this, many will want to see more.

    Mean Streets by Jim Butcher, Simon R. Green, Kat Richardson, & Thomas E. Sniegoski

    Urban fantasy fans, pay heed! "Mean Streets" is an awesome anthology with stories by four big-hitters of the genre. In one book, you can visit with Chicago wizard Harry Dresden, Nightside PI John Taylor, Greywalker Harper Blaine, and fallen angel Remy Chandler in their own worlds. Stories of murder and attempted murder most foul, but with magic added to the mayhem.<BR/><BR/>For those who are unfamiliar with the above names, they are the creations of Jim Butcher, Simon R. Green, Kat Richardson, and Thomas E. Sniegoski. This anthology gives you a chance to get a feel for each writer's style and characters and it's hard for me to believe that you won't find at least one (and likely all four) to your tastes.
