Carrie Vaughn on Urban Fantasy

Carrie Vaughn has a very cool series of posts up about the Urban Fantasy sub-genre, why it’s so popular these days, and how a genre that grew out of feminism is, at times, oddly anti-feminist.  (This last one is my own words, not sure if Carrie would exactly agree with that characterization, but that was how I read it.)  Check it out here.

If you don’t already know her work, when not creating insightful blog posts Carrie Vaughn is a writer of cool short stories and a series of novels about Kitty Narville, a werewolf who hosts a talk radio advice show for supernatural beings.
