My thanks to Fox Spirit for sponsoring Werewolf News with Jo Thomas’s novel 25 Ways to Kill a Werewolf – a provocative title for a site as pro-werewolf as this, but rest assured, there’s more to this wonderful story than laundry list of grisly demises for lycanthropes.
‘My name is Elkie Bernstein. I live in North Wales and I kill werewolves.’
When Elkie finds herself fighting for her life against something that shouldn’t exist she is faced with the grim reality that werewolves are real and she just killed one. Part diary, part instruction manual Elkie guides the reader through 25 ways you can kill a werewolf, without any super powers, and how she did it.
Jo Thomas writes speculative fiction, tending towards dark fantasy. She has taken the advice “write what you know” to heart and, as a result, werewolves now turn up in the strangest places. (None were harmed in the writing of “25 Ways To Kill A Werewolf” but friendly vets were pumped for advice.)
To find out more about Jo, her pack of Hellhounds and her interest in swords along with the odd piece of fiction that doesn’t contain werewolves, have a look at http://www.journeymouse.net/
