Mike Carey has a series about a necromancer in London - Felix Castor. Ghosts and demons.
A madness of angels is the first book of two about Matthew Swift by Kate Griffin. Sorcerers.
Webmage by Kelly McCullough also has a male protagonist, it is pretty average, but not bad. Based on Greek mythology. Greek deities.
Halflife Chronicles by Wm Mark Simmons starts out great, but the second book in the series can't keep up. Vampires and shape-shifters and zombies.
Andrew Swan wrote The Dragons of the Cuyahoga with a male journalist protagonist. I only read the first in the series. It is a parallel universe & portal kind of urban fantasy.
Then there is the Charlie Parker series by John Connolly, which are a lot less fantasy than the rest, but still kind of magical. P.I. and crimes.
If you like it, you can click the link near the top of the home page and go straight to it. It is in ebook form, but you can get it in ANY format you want. If you don't have an e-reader, you can download it to your computer and print it off if you want.
