These twenty short stories focus on paranormal mysteries that run the urban fantasy gamut with vampires, werewolves, witches, ghosts, seers, mages and Mike Hammer making featured appearances. All of the contributions by The Mystery Writers of America authors are enjoyable tales that sub-genre fans will want to read as the diversity of the supernatural adds to the overall fun. Vampires are right at home in Parnell Hall's amusing "Death of a Vampire" and Charlaine Harris's "Dahlia Underground". Ghosts star in Harley Jane Kozak's "Madeeda", Carolyn Hart's "Riding High" as a marriage counselor and even as a phantom ship in Lou Kemp's "In Memory of the Sibylline". Finally Hammer has a "Grave Matter" (by Max Allan Collins and Mickey Spillane) case with a supernatural taint. This is a strong anthology as everyone contributing showed up in top form providing enjoyable Crimes by Moonlight: Mysteries from the Dark Side collection. Harriet Klausner

Short stories of crime and the paranormal from 20 authors who belong to Mystery Writers of America...There was enough variety throughout the collection for everyone to find something to like. Jeff Cummings and Natalie Ross did an excellent job with the narration. I would have thought there was a cast of readers.

I should have written the review as soon as I finished the book. All I remember now is that this anthology tended to be much, much darker than most of the ones I read! I'd classify this volume as horror rather than dark fantasy, and paranormal romance fans should probably just skip it altogether even if they do see familiar authors' names. I should have skipped it, and I wasn't reading for any romance. I'm still shivering!

A book of short stories concerning crime and the supernatural. Among the authors are Charlaine Harris, Max Allen Collins, Barbara D'Amato, and Margaret Maron. There was enough spread in topic to find a story that pleases.I recommend this book.

Some very good stories collected in this anthology. Unfortunately for all the Charlaine Harris fans, hers wasn't one of them. Lou Kemp, Max Allan Collins with Mickey Spillane, Barbara D'Amato were all amazingly good.
DanaJean on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This book of short stories is one of the best groupings of stories by various authors I've read. Crime writers taking a paranormal approach, I really enjoyed every single entry. I felt Ms. Harris had the weakest entry of the bunch; and I got to read things from people I might not have normally given a second glance to. This book really kept my interest and pulled me along. Very good.
