Additional Information

When Darkness Reigns and the Full Moon Glows, Terror Emerges to Stalk the Unsuspecting…

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 full moon beasts, it includes topics such as …
• Bear, tiger, coyote, and other shape-shifting people
• Classic and modern werewolf movies
• Gargoyles, totem poles, and Internet depictions
• Serial killers and sadistic rulers
• Sorcery, spells, and talismans
• Television shows, songs, and computer games

Half of the book is a refers to werewolf theamed movies. i absolutely hate that It has some historical folklore information but not enough. I don't need to learn about movies and Hollywood garbage I have seen way too much of that stuff. I want more folklore and dogman sightings when I want to read about real werewolves. If I want to know about movies I would just watch a crappy movie.
I am a fan of Steiger, but here, he comes across as pompous. This book is great for people who do not know anything at all about werewolves. Steiger's mistake is that his focus is too broad and varied. This book includes information about a plethora of creatures, and many of them have nothing to do with werewolves, lycanthropy, or various issues in relation to those. Sadly, he has information on things from Demons to fairies and even a few select serial murderers which have no true connection to werewolfism or lycanthropy (I also research serial killers). This book would be much better if its sole focus was on humans who shift to an animal form, or vice versa. Basically this book is several hundred pages long, but only contains about 30-50 pages worth of quality information. For me, it just wasn't worth the time or effort to purchase and then read.
This books is the companion volume to The Vampire Book: The Encyclopedia of the Undead. While not comparable in sheer size to that other volume, it contains hundreds of references to werewolves and many other beast shapeshifters, including tigers, panthers, bears. It does to Werewolves what any good reference encyclopedia should to: provide nearly exhaustive reference to werewolves as found in popular legend, mythology, pop culture, films and novels. The books has a good number of black and white illustrations including some from medieval sources. This book is not only for those with a casual interest in werewolves but also for those interested in a more academic reference book. I highly recommend this book whether you are researching a term paper or, like me, you have an intense fascination with the supernatural and with werewolves in particular. My only critique is that I wish the book was bigger, but then again, this book will probably continue to grow and expand as The Vampire... Read more
