Hey UK werewolf people, you have a week to register for the “She-Wolf” conference

I mentioned it in June and I’m reminding you again, so that perhaps some of you will register, and go, and tell me all about it. If you need a reminder about what the conference is, here is that reminder:

The conference is entitled She-Wolf: Female Werewolves, Shapeshifters and Other Horrors in Art, Literature and Culture (but She-Wolf for short). It’s on Thursday 9th – Friday 10th September 2010, at the University of Manchester, UK.

This is a smart conference put on by smart people who want to talk about werewolves, women, and werewolf women. They’ve got 40-ish spots left, so if you’re in the area, I encourage you to go. Check out the conference site or the official blog for more info.
