Product description

Review

Wolf-Girls is a nice collection of tales, well worth reading. Many of the stories have left me yearning for more. It has been difficult to pick out examples. The stories I have not mentioned here are all good reads. The anthology travels through many genres and subgenres. You have urban fantasy, horror, science fiction, cyberpunk, the Wild West, the historical narrative, the folk tale. Many of the stories are written from a classical construction of the werewolf and/or the shape-shifter. There is the painful transformation, the bite, the full moon. Almost all the writers in the anthology are women, which makes me wonder about whether it has influenced the stories and the broad range of women portrayed in the stories or not. You meet serial killers and predators; you also have bearded women, sideshow freaks, mental illness and psychiatric patients. As Kate writes: There are wives and mothers, sisters and lovers. Lone wolves and pack animals. Killers, nurses, bitches, librarians, delinquents and warriors. There are few happily ever afters, even fewer apologies. And definitely no waxing. This is perhaps one of the main reasons why I enjoyed to read this anthology. It´s always nice to read stories with a strong female focus, especially in genres and thematic areas that are traditionally male-dominated where women are sidekicks or something to look at. I feel that the she-wolves in this anthology truly are themselves. They don´t excuse themselves for being disgusting and hairy or monstrous killers, even though they are women. They just are. They feel strangely natural. Also, since the stories in this anthology introduces she-wolves from such a broad range of themes, genres and tradition, it also presents all aspects of women, be it the teenage girl next door or the mother who lost a child or the girl who is raped in the park. As a woman, I could identify with many of the plots and the women characters. And even though some stories are clearly stronger than others, I feel that all the stories in Wolf-Girls are well written and enjoyable, and something I would recommend both to readers who enjoy the horror and fantasy genres, and readers who like to be challenged in their perspectives on women. --http://reviews.futurefire.net/2013/02/kate-wolf-girls.html
