    AAWWOOOOOOOO!!! Werewolf books..

    What are some of everyone's favorite werewolf books? Of all the werewolf books I've read, I think my fave might be Al Sarantonio's Moonbane. I couldn't put it down, the pacing was unrelenting and EVERY page lent itself to the continuation of the story. I also really liked his werewolves and there origins.

    As soon as I saw the title of this thread I thought of Moonbane. Found that one to be a great book as well. Only think I didn't like was that while reading I had an idea for a werewolf story where they didn't change back to human form even when the moon wasn't full, and then shortly after that I discovered that the werewolves I was reading about were like that, though I have a hunch Al did a better job at setting it up and explaining it than I would have been able to come up with

    Great, now I have Warren Zevon going through my head. I highly recommend Bestial: Werewolf Apocolypse by William D. Carl. I had a lot of fun reading it, and the author is working on a 2nd book right now that I can't wait for!

    Not much of a werewolf fan, I'm afraid. In movies, yes, but not so much in books.
    I've only read King's Cycle of the Werewolf and McCammon's The Wolf's Hour.

    MOONBANE was teriffic, I must admit. And I was quite impressed with THE HOWLING. And of course I've read CYCLE OF THE WEREWOLF. Nothing else really comes to mind..

    The Wolf's Hour is my favorite werewolf novel, with Jeffrey Sackett's Mark of the Werewolf a close second. The original version of that novel, called Lycanthropos, is available as an ebook from Crossroads Press (click here to purchase; you can also read about how it differs from Mark of the Werewolf on that page). Al Sarrantonio's Moonbane is my third-favorite. I also really enjoyed Steve Vance's The Hyde Effect and Steve Ruthenbeck's The Dogs of War.

    I have Moonbane on the shelf and have not read it yet. This thread has me thinking it should be my next book to read.

    Warren Zevon was going through my head when I started this. Bestial: Werewolf Apocolypse is a great read.

    Frik and bsaen, I have been meaning to get a copy of The wolf's Hour. So it IS that good then?

    Goat, excellent suggestions. I will track all of them down

    calason, Wolf's Hour is OUTSTANDING as a werewolf novel, as a historical fiction novel and simply as a well written compusively readable book. It doesn't matter if you get the Subterranean edition of simply the old massmarket paperback. It is a must read!!!!

    Well....I was not too impressed - as I usually am with a McCammon book.
    It was quick read, lots of action, but somehow disappointing.
    That's how I remember reading it - way back in '89.
    Time for a re-read, I think.

    Let's just say it was the McCammon book I liked the least, together with Stinger.
    My favorites are Boy's Life, They Thirst and Swan Song.

    There is also Ravenous by Ray Garton or for a different take The Wolfman by Nicholas Pekearo was very good!

    How about GOOD anthos.

    Wolf's Hour is great, the added short story from SubPress was awesome and has me waiting for the next one. Beastial was a fun, quick read. Fairly short, I think I read it straight through. A few other oldies I loved when I read them were Wolfsbane by William Johnstone, Quarrel With the Moon by J.C. Conway, and Werewolves be Jerry and Sharon Ahern. Only anthology I read was Werewolvesead Moon Rising which came out maybe early '10? It wasn't bad, nothing really jumped out as a future great.

    I too, have Moonbane sitting on my shelf waiting to be read. I think I've hit the point of having more to read than I've read.

    I hit that point a long time ago, yet I keep buying more and more, lol. I've made a dent though, up to over 30 books read so far since December, though I've purchased many, many more than that in that time too

    I'm thinking I might need to check out some of these other werewolf stories

    I thought The Wolf's Hour was a fantastic read, and I'm much more into the Vampire genre myself. I bought the Sub Press edition and read it recently, and I pre-purchased the next book in the series.

    After that, I think The Howling is one of my favorites. I just bought the new limited edition, but haven't read it yet.
