Publisher's Summary

Werewolves are among our most ancient and deepest fears. The beast run amuck in human form is not a thing of the ancient past, we see headlines about it every day. Shootings, beatings, and other savage acts are part of our lives. Here are seven horrifying classics written between 1939 and 1956, including a shocker from the legendary Weird Tales. Plus the fascinating historical essay, The Origin Of The Werewolf Superstition.

Historical Werewolf Tales

This is an interesting collection of various tales of werewolves throughout history. The collection begins with an essay about the origin of the werewolf superstition. I found it fascinating that there are so many tales of humans being able to shift into different animals in the mythology/superstitions in most of the world. I appreciate the fact that this collection also includes tales that would not be considered politically correct in today's world and did not try to alter them or apologize for the verbiage of their times.

If you enjoy werewolf tales, you should give this book a try. As with most collections like this, some of the stories were more interesting than others, but all of them gave a new and different perspective to the werewolf mythos. All in all, an entertaining audiobook that will educate as well as entertain the listener.

The narrator does a great job and added a lot to my enjoyment of this book. I applaude Wordwooze Publishing for rescuing these tales (and others that they have published) for modern readers to be able to access. It would be a shame for us to lose these fascinating stories. I was given the chance to listen to this book by the Publisher and chose to review it.

Very Interesting

These tales were very entertaining and I enjoyed them. This is not my usual listen, but they were excellent. The narrator was a good reader.
