Werewolves at 100

It occurred to me last night that this year, 2012, marks the 100th anniversary of the original publication of Elliott O'Donnell's classic book on lycanthropy, Werewolves.

If you are into werewolves, but haven't read the book, then you really should! Packed with numerous cases of encounters with werewolves from all across the globe, and a wide variety of theories offered to explain what may be afoot, Werewolves is as essential today as it was exactly 100 years ago.

You said the magic word, "Werewolf." They are my favorite of the "magical" creatures. I think because I see man and wolf being so very similar with only a tenuous thread of civilization and humanity to tip the scales.
