Editorial Reviews

Author of "Rough Cut" - Ed Gorman
"A novel with real style, informed by a wry and sometimes chilling point of view. Moonbane is not quite like anything you've read before!"
Author of the "Hap Collins and Leonard Pine" mysteries" - Joe R. Lansdale
"Al Sarrantonio's Moonbane is a stylish B-movie of a novel. Fast paced and poetic, and scary in the old-fashioned sense of such fine B-chillers as The Cat People and I Walked With a Zombie."

Very nice quick read. Clever new twist on the werewolf legend-very imaginative. Loved the ending! Thanks for the time away from the real world.
