A sub-genre of fantasy. Modern fantasy is simply a fantasy story set in the present day. The degree to which magic is visible may vary from the "Elves-are-walking-the-streets-of-L.A." type of book to more subtle ones like John Crowley's Little, Big. Settings may be either urban, like Charles de Lint's Dreams Underfoot, or rural, like Terry Bisson's Talking Man.
