Overview

Showcasing the work of some of the best-known names in 19th- and 20th-century fiction alongside the twisted tales of their lesser-known but equally chilling contemporaries

Of the monsters that stalked the pages of 19th- and early 20th-century fiction, the werewolf has continued to represent the beast lurking underneath the veneer of human civilization to this day, a composite creature which is all too easily released and, once at large, difficult to constrain. From one of the very first werewolf stories appearing in Britain to a tale published after World War I, this collection brings together the greatest werewolf fiction from a period stretching to nearly a century, uniting figures as diverse as Hans Christian Andersen, Rudyard Kipling, and the Suffragette writer Clemence Housman.
