I was lucky enough today to read a really fabulous short story, "The Creature in Your Neighborhood," by Jim C. Hines. (You can find it in the anthology, Strip Mauled.) If you were to imagine Evil Sesame Street with werewolves, you might possibly get some idea of the awesome of this story. It's dark, and snarky, and smart. And I'll be including it on my list of nominations for the Hugo when I send that in.
