Silver Bullets


Classic Werewolf Stories.

Of the monsters that stalked the pages of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century fiction, the werewolf has continued to represent the beast lurking underneath the veneer of human civilisation to this day, a composite creature which is all too easily released and, once at large, difficult to constrain.

Product details

From one of the very first werewolf stories appearing in Britain to a tale published after the First World War, this collection brings together the greatest werewolf fiction from a period stretching to nearly a century. The anthology showcases the work of some of the best-known names in nineteenth- and twentieth-century fiction alongside the twisted tales of their lesser-known but equally chilling contemporaries.
