Werewolf Author Under The Spotlight

Linda Godfrey, author of two of the best books on werewolves ever written - The Beast of Bray Road and Hunting the American Werewolf - is the subject of a new article that appears in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Here's the on-line link.

Thanks for the link. History Channel was already running promos of next week's "werewolf" show during last night's episode of Monster Hunters. Looks like it'll be entertaining, to say the least!

By the way, how fortunate are we to have a cryptozoology-themed program that consistently delivers as much as Monster Hunters? I really appreciate their dedication to scientific methodology. Except for the rather disturbing and puzzling episode regarding human-ape hybridization a couple of weeks back, every installment that I've watched has been both interesting and committed to the classic or "Heuvelmans" school of cryptozoological investigation and ideas. Although I realize that such a nuts-and bolts approach is one with which you may differ (and perhaps, with good reason), at least one can't argue that Monster Hunters is relying on "hype" to explore the topic and engage the audience.

Yeah I think it's a pretty good show, and they keep a good, balanced perspective on things.
