Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A fox-girl battles the Crow Lords over the spoils of a postapocalyptic world in A.C. Wise's "The Thief of Precious Things," while a young woman ponders her lack of a bird skin in Carrie Laben's "And Neither Have I Wings To Fly." Sedia, the editor of the World Fantasy Award-winning Paper Cities: An Anthology of Urban Fantasy, Running with the Pack, and other themed anthologies, has chosen 29 original and previously published stories featuring shape changers and werecreatures to showcase the variety of tales about humans who can take the forms of animals. Contributors include Holly Black, Elizabeth Hand, Aaron Sterns, and other new and veteran fantasy authors. VERDICT This collection should appeal to fans of werefiction.
