In writing Celebrity Werewolf, Andrew Wallace blends comedy with horror, SF with cosmic spirituality, and in so doing creates something entirely new. With a jumping, twisting plot, Celebrity Werewolf is a must-read for anyone who wants to adventure in to the strange unknown, who enjoys their humour dark and their SF hard.
The book is set in a nationalistic post Brexit Kingdom of England, now separated from the wealthy Northern Republic (formerly Scotland and United Ireland) and the Welsh Protectorate following a series of calamitous trade wars and embargoes that crippled the British economy.
Gig Danvers wakes up in a field with no memory of how he got there or who he is; the one thing he does know is that he is a werewolf… permanently. He soon comes to the attention of the authorities, as well as the public, by performing various selfless acts of heroism. As Gig becomes more and more famous a number of factions are out to get him, not least the ironically named Saxon Jihad.
This start is very tongue in cheek with some nice laugh-out-loud moments, such as when Gig is subjected to various tests; “There is nothing in the subject’s saliva to suggest that his condition is transferable by biting. Injection of subject’s body fluids into test animals and human volunteers had no effect. Subject was requested to bite a volunteer, upon which the volunteer gained prolonged orgasm and then passed out.” This sets the scene for the first half of the story but then the book becomes much more serious and dark, dipping its toe, if not its whole leg, into hard science fiction territory.
While not a long book (178 pages) Celebrity Werewolf was a real joy to read and much like Gig himself, suave, sophisticated, erudite and charming.
