Publisher's Summary

The Hunter from the Woods marks the much-anticipated return of Michael Gallatin, the lycanthropic hero of Robert McCammon’s 1989 classic, The Wolf’s Hour. These all-new, interlinked stories offer a full measure of McCammon’s trademark narrative excitement, and comprise a fascinating composite portrait of a unique fictional creation.

The volume opens with a pair of brief glimpses into Michael’s early life in Russia and his initial recruitment into the British Secret Service. It ends with a haunting vision of the werewolf at twilight. In between, McCammon gives us three stellar novellas depicting different phases of Michael’s long, brutal war against Nazi Germany. "Sea Chase" is a nautical tale about the hazards of transporting a defecting German scientist to a place of sanctuary in England. "The Wolf and the Eagle" is the account of an unlikely friendship between rival "men of action" and a harrowing portrayal of a lethal forced march through the North African desert. "The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs" tells of an impossible, ultimately tragic love affair set in the embattled city of Berlin during the latter stages of the war.

Erotic, visceral, and filled with moments of desolating horror and unexpected warmth, The Hunter from the Woods is a triumph of imaginative storytelling. Like the best of McCammon’s earlier work, it offers intelligent, world-class entertainment. In the process, it shines a welcome new light on one of the most uncommon heroes in contemporary fiction.

Collection of Short stories or edited chapters??

Most of the "short stories" seemed to be chapters or parts of chapters, edited out of original book, "The Wolf's Hour". Especially, the 1st and 2nd stories and the very last story (possibly the original epilogue to first wolf book???)!
Well written, yes.
Excellent narrator, yes!
Would I buy another collection of short stories from Robert McCammon, NO!

Fast Paced and Held My Attention!!!

Any additional comments?

I really liked this book. Fast pace and lots of action!

The werewolf concept really held my attention. The writing is very good.

Other books that have good action that I recommend are:
"Shape's Tiger" (the series)...
"The Warded Man"
"Beat the Reaper" page turning thriller.
"Fear Nothing"
The Eye of the World"
"The Way of Kings"
and
"The Lion's Game"

Simon Prebble is the Best!

Great story but wish there were more Michael Gallentine books available.

Can we expect more soon?

Better, if possible!

More fast-paced stories about the wolf I've come to enjoy, a bit more of the existential, then ironic, this time. Incredibly enjoyable, I cannot wait for the next!

Book two is awesome and feels in a lot of blanks. How Michael became a British spy but the best part is the last chapter!!! Cliffhanger

Michael Gallatin Is Superb

Wow! This was a great book. I loved every novella and am hoping there will be more stories to come. The stories are gripping and the descriptions provided by the author make you feel that you are part of the story. I especially liked the story about Francesca and the last story. It remains that there could be more stories about this fantastic man/wolf and I hope they are published soon. If you like werewolf stories, you'll love this one but read the first book before you read this one so you will understand the significance of the mentions. The narrator is the voice of Michael and you will love every word. I'll be listening to this book again.

Magnificent...

This story reminded me of The Pianist from another perspective...truly heart rending for a man who found and then lost the absolute love of his life - for anyone who has been lucky enough to feel the same love for another person, it's a magnificently told tale that resonates to the core..

Can't wait for the next instalment!!!!!!!!!!

Very good
some excellent insight into Michael, and the last 25 minutes were epic terrible and cruel to the reader.
A master class in leaving it hanging.

Great Short Stories

We learn more of Michael's life through tales at sea, in the desert and back at his adopted home, Wales.

The trip at sea was probably the best, having just watched "Black Sea", you could really appreciate how cramped, dangerous and tense everything was.
