Tales of the Pack: A Werewolf Anthology (Sky Warrior Book Publishing, 2013)

Available in Paperback and Ebook

The legend of the man-beast has been with us forever. It has changed and evolved and reshaped itself much as the lycanthrope itself, and yet, at its heart, it is essentially the same. Unlike the vampire that has gone from a stinking, bloated, near-mindless corpse to a suave, angst-ridden sex toy as society shapes the trope to fit current mores, the werewolf has, for centuries, been about the loss of self-control.

In Tails of the Pack, Steven E. Wedel has put together eleven of the best Werewolf stories by authors such as Mark Finn, Tiffani Angus, Frog and Esther Jones, and Aaron Smith. Keep those silver bullets handy, you’re going to need them.

  11. This book was so great and creepy!! Although the creepiness could be contributed to the fact that I read it when I had no power due to storms. Anyways I keep googling trying to find out when the sequel will come out and so far no word. Is the sequel in the works yet? If so any idea when it may be released? Thanks!!

    • Hi Ashley! I’m so glad we were able to give you some temporary creeps. 😉 The sequel … looks like it might not happen. We wanted to, but some, well, let’s call it “business dealings” came up. So, I can’t rule it out completely, but right now it doesn’t look so good. Sorry! Carrie and I have written another book that our agent is shopping around, though.
