This is a collection of short stories. The first is the title story & was amusing, an interesting take on lycanthropy. Kind of hoaky, but fun & full of older references from the McCarthy era. Well worth reading. 4 stars.

The second story is a different sort of horror story, "The Pink Caterpillar". It is told by Fergus, the detective from the first story. Interesting, but I wouldn't rush out to read it again. 3 stars.

I continued to read this collection & was more & more amazed by the number of stories & genres it covered. They were all good stories, somewhat dated in most cases, but not badly. Some stories were SF, others a blend of SF & Fantasy or even the paranormal - time travel mixed with a demon or a newspaper that always prints the truth. Some were horror, without gore, but pretty terrifying. Again, I'll use the truthful newspaper as an example or a man who chats with his own ghost.

All were well worth reading. ( )
