Werewolf Wednesday Digest for November Week 4

A. Quinton — Nov. 27th 2013

It’s Werewolf Wednesday, which means there’s plenty of lycanthropic stuff happening on Twitter and Tumblr. Here are some of the highlights that caught my eye.

  • If you want some excellent werewolf art based on smart, plausible biology, check out Viergacht’s Northern & Southern hemisphere werewolf variations, based on the creatures who inhabit the world of his writing.
  • @UlfKrahe gave a shout-out to a classic werewolf book that I highly recommend: the “Werewolves” anthology, edited by Martin H. Greenberg. It was one of the first werewolf books I ever bought – it was 1995 and I had to ask my mom for an advance on my allowance.
  • The latest WolfCop production video showcases the film’s art design team, the lengths they went to to capture that 70’s/80’s horror movie vibe, and a truly amazing “Lost Cat” poster.
  • From Dread Central comes a press release about a new werewolf movie from Ruthless Pictures. Werewolf Rises “tells the tale of Emma, a country girl who left for the big city, only to return years later with big problems” and starts filming next month.
  • Artist Erika Deoudes’s gallery of sexy monsters showcases 12 classic movie monsters (including the Predator, Zuul, and yes, a werewolf) and is available as one-off prints or as a 2014 calendar. The series kicks off with JANUWEREWOLF, whose strategically-placed champagne bottle is both highly provocative and only technically SFW.
  • Amanda Elbeck’s comic about what would happen if most werewolf fans actually became werewolves is the funniest thing I’ve seen all week.

It’s only 3:30 PM as I post this, so for more Werewolf Wednesday juice, check your local Twitter and Tumblr listings!

    Hah! I was rereading that anthology just earlier today.

    My first werewolf book was the “Werewolf!” collection by Bill Pronzini. Still have a copy somewhere.

    WOLF COP! So excited for this!

    And, thanks for the mention :D

    I don’t remember what my first werewolf book was, but I do have that Pronzini book on my shelf. A lot of good stories in that collection.
