This is a reasonably interesting book - presented as an encyclopedia, as a collection of short articles on various facts, issues and topics relating to werewolves. It's nicely put together, with high quality production values. Much of the book focuses of film facts - and, as such, virtually every werewolf film that's been made is featured in detail. There are also plenty of photos taken from these films. Additionally, there are a few articles dealing with the history of the werewolf as myth and legend. However, it's mostly about movie incarnations of the lycanthrope.
This book does lack depth, as each article is rather short. It's also now rather dated, and recent film releases aren't included. Yet for under £10 it's reasonably priced. If you're a big fan of everything 'werewolf' then I recommend it.
A great book with lots of interesting info. I especially like all the film pictures etc.a very exciting read. There is something very mysterious about the werewolf,as too the vampire...it's good to a get a little bit more knowledge about them both. Thank you.
wasn't quite what I presumed it would be, but very thorough detail, if werewolves per se are your thing this is ideal. Good book, well put together, exhaustive anecdotes on the reality of the werewolf phenomenon. A book that can be dipped into at random, bedtime reading.
