    A refreshing look at a horror classic

    Curse of the Full Moon approaches the idea of the werewolf from a variety of angles and genres. Here, the werewolf both hero and villain, human and monster, and always something in between extremes. If you are at all interested in werewolves, there is something in this anthology that you'll love, and perhaps a few pleasant surprises.

    Many of the stories are reprints, which means that a number of forgotten gems have been brought back to the public eye. While all of the stories deal with the common theme of werewolves, no two approach the idea from the same direction, which results in some fascinating insight into the nature of the beast in all of us.

    Get this. You won't regret it.
