Holly Black. The Aarne-Thompson Classification Revue. (The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year, Volume Five)

Originally in : Full Moon City

Nicely told contemporary urban dark fantasy/horror story about a female werewolf, who finds unexpected and unwanted success in an audition for a theatrical show.

But the main issue for me with the story is that there just isn’t any of the kind of real creativity you get with good sf/fantasy that is set in different times and different places with different people, just bog-standard modern Buffylore.
