It's hard to hunt the creatures of the night when you're afraid of the dark...

Jan Mirocek used to be a hunter. A very special hunter. Once, he had hunted the things that haunt the forests of the night in every culture of the world. The kallikantzari of Greece. The loup-garou of France. The kitsune of Japan.

Were-beasts. Shape-shifters.

Until one night, Jan made a mistake, and the woman he loved died.

Now he shuns the dark and his own past, hiding in a big city. For the were-beasts never come here.

Or do they?

People are dying in Toronto, and all signs point to a shifter. But can Jan conquer his own fears to track down the killer? And what kind of shape shifter would be at home in a modern city?

Note: includes an afterword by the author and excerpts from many of his other stories
