The Werewolf Book: The Encyclopedia of Shape-Shifting Beings

Taking a serious look at all things werewolf, from the Middle Ages to the Internet, Steiger’s book “leads the pack” on the phenomenon with 250 essays containing current and comprehensive information. 150 photos.

Along the way, you’ll land at the doorstep of creatures like hirsute mass-murderer Albert Fish, and Fritz Haarman, who slaughtered and ate his victims–selling the leftovers as steaks and roasts in his butcher shop–as well as visits to mythical shamans, sirens, and skin walkers.
