Fur, fangs, film & femininity: Priest’s “She-Wolf” explores the cultural history of the female werewolf
Kipling had it right, I think – the female of the species is more deadly than the male. Historically, she’s also maligned, revered, and misunderstood. A new book edited by Dr. Hannah Priest explores these cultural artifacts and more though the perspective of the female werewolf.
An interactive storybook for kids aged 6 through 9 is exactly the sort of thing I’d tell you about if it was clever, informative and involved a werewolf. So let me tell you about No ‘Wurst For Were.
I’m excited at today’s announcement that seminal 90’s paranormal investigation series The X-Files is returning to Fox for a limited series. But I’m nervous, too, because if any of the new episodes resurrect and validate a long-debunked rumour, I’ll have no choice but to end Werewolf News.

Thanks to Hic Dragones for being our first sponsor of the season with K. Bannerman’s acclaimed novel The Tattooed Wolf. As of this post I’ve only just started reading it, and I’m hooked!
One of the great things about running a site with an editorial board of one (consisting of me) is I get to post about anything I think is noteworthy or cool, even if it’s only connected to werewolves by the thinnest thread. That’s why I can tell you about the game Moonman.

One such scene happens mid-season and stars my favourite character as a werewolf.
The Pack #1: A Wolf in Egypt is the first issue in a graphic novel series about a group of Egyptian werewolves trekking through a fantasy version of ancient Africa.
“Meat that dies happy, dies tender.” Last summer I posted about She-Wolf Of The Woods, an indie horror short created by Adriana Polito and her team on a tiny budget, with beautiful / scary / funny / NSFW results. Now She-Wolf is available to watch for free on YouTube!
