Overview

In this collection of urban fantasy stories, editors George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois explore the places where mystery waits at the end of every alley and where the things that go bump in the night have something to fear . . .

In “Death by Dahlia,” #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris takes vampire Dahlia Lynley-Chivers to a lavish party that turns deadly. And with so many creatures of the night in attendance, Dahlia will have a hard time identifying the most likely suspect!
 
#1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Briggs thrills in “In Red, with Pearls,” as a werewolf PI races to crack a case involving zombies, witches, and the most horrifying creatures of them all—lawyers.
 
In “Lord John and the Plague of Zombies,” New York Times bestselling author Diana Gabaldon follows Lord John as he journeys to the beautiful but faintly sinister island paradise of Jamaica, where he’s soon investigating a mystery with no shortage of spiders, snakes, revolutionaries, and, of course, zombies.
 
With these and thirteen more original tales, Down These Strange Streets takes you to the cities where fantasy and mystery collide and where private eyes who have seen it all find something lurking that is stranger still…

Praise

“Some of the top names in urban fantasy are joined by some of today’s best historical mystery writers in this top-notch anthology.”—Publishers Weekly

“Urban fantasy in a nourish vein…This is a pretty strong collection.”—Locus
 
“There’s lots [of stories], some in the past, some in the future, and all entertaining as you get to read old favorite characters or are introduced to new ones. I always enjoy anthologies for the variety in the stories and this one provides plenty, but all with a paranormal detective bent.”—News and Sentinel
