Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

Werewolves: A Field Guide to Shapeshifters, Lycanthropes, and Man-Beasts

Werewolves: A Field Guide to Shapeshifters, Lycanthropes, and Man-Beasts - Bob Curran The description and title of this book makes one think it's going to be a fantasy adventure, discovering the various werewolf mythologies and what creates them, when in reality, this is a dense, academic, very well-researched dissertation about historical people and events that could have lead to the mythological archetype of "the werewolf." Hat's off to the incredible research involved in the writing of this book, but it would have been nice to have a few fantasy stories thrown in, just get a break from the download of information.
