The urban fantasy anthology by Peter S Beagle( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Star-studded and comprehensive, this imaginative anthology brings a myriad of modern fantasy voices under one roof.

Whether they feature tattooed demon-hunters, angst-ridden vampires, supernatural gumshoes, or pixelated pixies, these authors--including Patricia Briggs, Neil Gaiman, and Charles de Lint--mash-up traditional fare with pop culture, creating iconic characters, conflicted moralities

"The novel takes place in suburban Iowa and in New York City, around the middle of the 21st century. Its first section describes the childhood and adolescence of Daniel Weinreb, an imaginative boy who manages to adapt well to his conservative surroundings until a minor act of rebellion sends him to prison at age 14. Daniel's experience there makes him eager to leave the Midwest. After falling in love with the daughter of a powerful and reactionary local tycoon, he moves with her to New York, dreaming of becoming a musician and exploring the forbidden art of "flying"--electronically-assisted astral projection. Tragedy and exploitation leave Daniel's idealism in ruins, but he persists and becomes an internationally famous and controversial performer"--Wikipedia.com
