Centipede Press, a publisher that specializes in “the finest in crime, horror, horror film studies, and science fiction”, has released a gorgeous edition of Guy Endore’s classic werewolf novel, “The Werewolf of Paris”.
Our edition, the only edition currently in print, features a new introduction by Thomas Tessier (author of The Nightwalker), the complete text of the novel, numerous wood engravings, and a color gallery of old hardcover and paperback covers as well as film adaptations. Cloth, $75
Centipede has been described as the “Rolls Royce of horror publishing“, and by all accounts, the editions they publish are second to none. If you’re a bibliophile with a penchant for classic horror, you might want to consider adding this to your shelf. For those with a bit more to spend and an appreciation for macabre art, Centipede also publishes Knowing Darkness: Artists Inspired by Stephen King, an art book that includes Bernie Wrightson‘s gorgeous illustrations for “Cycle of the Werewolf”.
