I Have Only A Vague Idea What This Is

Oz and Ends just did two posts on urban fantasy. I can't say I've read a great deal of the stuff, certainly not enough to know that it requires some romance. I thought urban fantasy just meant I was safe from the icky parts of high fantasy--wizards and dragons and princesses and fairies.

Or maybe I should say that I thought that in urban fantasy if there were any wizards and dragons and princesses and fairies, they'd be much cooler than they are in high fantasy.

That’s what I thought, too, when I started checking around. “Urban fantasy” seems to have started as just such an umbrella term for fantasy that wasn’t high fantasy. But the way people are using it now, it’s turned into something else.
