If werewolves, hairy shape-shifting monsters, and silver-bullets are your thing, then you’re in for a big, big treat! An excellent, fully updated, and massively expanded, edition of The Werewolf Book: The Encyclopedia of Shape-Shifting Beings is most definitely a title to sink your teeth into!

The Examiner

There are historical as well as pop culture entries in this encyclopedia, and I think that's what makes this book so different. Most people do not sit down and read an encyclopedia from cover to cover, but with this book, the reader can do exactly that and not feel overwhelmed with information. [T]his encyclopedia will appeal to more than just the average werewolf/vampire lover.

From lycanthropic creatures found on television and film such as Teen Wolf, Twilight, and True Blood to the earliest folklore of shape-shifting creatures, The Werewolf Book: The Encyclopedia of Shapeshifting Beings is an eye-opening, blood-pounding tour through the ages of monsters with the most amazing camouflage capabilities—they hide among us! Along the way, you’ll land at the doorstep of creatures like hirsute mass-murderer Albert Fish, and Fritz Haarman, who slaughtered and ate his victims—selling the leftovers as steaks and roasts in his butcher shop—as well as visits to mythical shamans, sirens, and skin walkers.

Covering 140,000 years of legend, mythology, and fact, The Werewolf Book provides hair-raising evidence of strange and obsessional behavior through the centuries. Learn the basics of becoming a werewolf and the intricacies of slaying the beast. A true homage to werewolves and other beasts, it includes a full moon of topics such as …
