  1. This is one of the best collections I ve read recently Most of the stories were very good, and there were some cool twists on the whole werewolf thing the guy who was not a werewolf, yet who the weres thought was, so he got a job on a werewolf company and a house in a werewolf suburb, but didn t quite fit in and the one where a werewolf girl finds True Love at a furry convention these were 2 of the standouts Oh, and Jim Hine s truly peverse take on children s TV Very fun stuff


  2. Anthologies are a dicey lot to try and give a single rating While there was one five star story and one or two four star tales, most of stories were just kind of there Not bad but not really unique or funny enough to stand out On the plus sidehey, werewolves rock and even a bad werewolf story is still good.


  3. Alas, poor werewolves, writes Esther Friesner in the introduction to Strip Mauled Forever doomed to be Avis to the vampire s unassailable fang hold on Hertz, Pepsi to their Coke, Burger King to their McDonalds To which LupLun replies, Where you been Antarctica I shouldn t be mean Strip Mauled was published in 2009, meaning that said intro was probably penned in 2008 At which point, yes, the bloodsuckers did rule the roost But, the wheel turns Over the past two years, we ve seen two debuting were [...]


  4. Part of a series of anthologies set in suburbia, each looking at the trials and tribulations of a particular brand of supernatural species or occupation, in the case of the witches , Strip Mauled is the werewolf part of this set Unfortunately, while most of the stories have humorous moments and are at least worth a smile, most of the authors in turn sacrifice tension and interest in favor of levity Sometimes, it s hard to suspend disbelief other times, it s hard to care When the characters aren [...]


  5. This is twenty short stories about werewolves in suburbia, most of them intending to be funny But the problem is, twenty short stories is just too, too many I would have preferred ten or fifteen stories that may or may not have been longer Enforcement Claws by Steven Piziks is about a suburb with a very strict Home Owner s Association, that while it allows werewolves, zombies and witches, it doesn t allow for mixing phyla until the president of the HOA s son she s a werewolf comes out as a werec [...]


  6. I d seen this book before at Barnes and Noble but hadn t been in the mood for short stories The first week of school, however, is challenging I didn t think I could remember longer storylines with the pressure.In general, I like the collections that Esther M Friesner edits In this grouping, three stories particularly tickled my fancy while two left me confused.I may re read the whole collection later but, right now, I m keeping the book for the three stand outs I m recommending those stories to [...]


  7. As with most anthologies, some stories were better than others, and I skipped the last one as I m really not a fan of reading fiction written as if it was a drama script, but overall I enjoyed this collection.I am glad however that I did read the first anthology in this series first, even though it arrived in the post after this and the third, as some of the stories picked up from where previous stories had left off I enjoy it, generally, but it makes it important to start reading with the first [...]


  8. I m not really a werewolf fan, so I was pretty surprised by how entertaining I found all the stories in this compilation Much like the Chicks in Chainmail series, there were some repeat authors between this volume and Witch Way to the Mall which is cool, and also encourages me to re read that one.This is good humorous reading for fans of werewolves in particular or the supernatural in general.


  9. This is a 3.5 from me.I found this to be a stronger pack grin of stories than the witch compilation Maybe because werewolves are not as over mined as witches and vampires have not yet read the vampire collection Nice escapist stories of werewolves in the suburbs Always enjoy Esther as an editor.


  10. I like anything edited by Esther Friesner, and I enjoyed most of these werewolf stories I found Enforcement Claws hilarious, and Frijoles for Fenris was also great I had trouble getting into the last story, the Creature in Your Neighborhood It was strange, which is okay, but it didn t fit in with the other stories I am looking for other compilations edited by Esther Friesner.


  11. Esther M Friesner is not an excellent comedic writer she s a mediocre one who s occasionally good She usually is a great editor of comedy, however This book read like a collection of stuff written by her than stuff edited by her The title metaphor was tortured at times, and the comedy was broad and sophomoric.


  12. I like Esther Friesner s other books the barbarian adventurer ones , but the werewolf angle didn t really grab me except for the ones that made me laugh I guess I m just not much for werewolves same goes for vampires, except for Buffy of courseey just seem like too much of the same thing.


  13. As is standard with a collection of stories based on a theme some of the stories were good and some were better On the whole, an enjoyable collection, with a couple of interesting twists on the theme of malls and werewolves.


  14. Excellent collection Even the worst of the stories is not time wasted Excellent expression of proper disrespect for society Some of the stories come close to master status Best of the genre I have read since Dickson.



  15. I giggled I grinned, I guffawed laughed out loud This collection of stories is a riot These images created dreams, funny moving dreams that delighted my mind spirit.



  16. Most of the stories are not particularly good, though several are entertaining and Jim C Hines story is fantastic.


  17. So much fun and a great variety of short stories I have to admit that the one with the furries might be my most favorite just because of the extreme ridiculousness but still well written.





  18. I m not usually a fan of short story anthologies but this had me howling I know bad pun If you like great werewolf stories a great read.




  19. This is a great collection of stories written with wit and humor and just a touch of sass Really great read.
