As a fan of the Urban Fantasy genre, I read a lot of it and about it. In reading about the publishing of UF, I have run across information on trends and the supposed popularity of tropes, plots, creatures and devices used within the genre. One day it may be reported that vampires are completely passe and the next it will be faeries or shapeshifters or that publishers are just not looking for yet another crime-fighting wizard.
