Werewolf — a creature who has made men shiver for centuries. Just imagine human beings who can transform themselves from ordinary people into snarling, murderous beasts!
But not all the werewolves we encounter in this collection of original stories are monsters. One old, gentle wolf saves a baby girl from a fate worse than death and grows to love her as his own cub. One exhausted, hunted werewolf finds sanctuary in the Jewish ghetto of 12th-century Cologne with the aid of an old man who understands persecution. One young girl is a drummer in a rock band — when she isn't prowling as a wolf. Others, of course, are as brutal and as bloodthirsty as humanity's most ghoulish fantasies can make them.
There are fifteen stories in this collection by such well-known fantasy writers as Ru Emerson, Bruce Coville, Elizabeth Scarborough, Anne E. Crompton, and Jane Yolen. They are original, extraordinary, and the stuff that dreams — and nightmares — are made of.
Jane Yolen and Martin H. Greenberg have collaborated on a number of anthologies for young people, including VAMPIRES.
