About the Author

Jeff Strand is a funny, deeply disturbed individual. -Jack Ketchum, author of Off Season and The Girl Next Door Jeff Strand's bio used to mention his cat, but every author mentions a cat in their bio, so he's decided to quit doing it. Fight the power. He's been writing ever since he was old enough to throw screaming fits in crowded supermarkets, though the quality of his work from that era is questionable. "How to Rescue a Dead Princess" is his silliest book. If you're looking for something less silly, although not exactly high literature, you may want to try his Andrew Mayhem series: "Graverobbers Wanted (No Experience Necessary)," "Single White Psychopath Seeks Same," and "Casket For Sale (Only Used Once)." Also available is his obligatory 'giant ants attack the world' novel, "Mandibles." Cemetery Dance magazine said that "No author working today comes close to Jeff Strand's perfect mixture of comedy and terror." They weren't talking about "How to Rescue a Dead Princess." He checks his e-mail every forty-six seconds, and receiving e-mail from his readers makes him positively giddy. It's almost a little creepy. Write him at your own risk at JeffStrand@aol.com

Known for his trademark humor blended with tautly written suspense Jeff Strand's WOLF HUNT is satisfyingly funny and ghoulishly gruesome. George and Lou are two thugs for hire...but this time they are charged with the simple task of transporting a human in a cage. But their cargo is no ordinary human. Ivan is a werewolf, sadistic and a smartass. And when breaks out, mayhem ensues....

A hair-raising story of action and horror, by turns hilarious, creepy, and downright disturbing. If you like Jeff Strand's comedic dialogue, as I do, you'll love this novel. A fresh and original take on werewolves. The narrator of the Audible version, Scott Thomas, does an excellent job. Highly recommended.

Barnes and Noble has the following for the book: Two thugs. One innocent woman. And one VICIOUS frickin¿ werewolf. Meet George and Lou, thugs for hire. The kind of intimidating-yet-friendly guys who will break your thumbs, but be polite about it. Their latest assignment is to drive across Florida to deliver some precious cargo to a crime lord. The cargo: a man in a cage. Though Ivan seems perfectly human, they¿re warned that he is, in fact, a bloodthirsty werewolf. George and Lou don¿t believe in the supernatural, but even if they did, it¿s daytime and tonight isn¿t the full moon. Their instructions are straightforward: Do not open the cage. Do not reach into the cage. Do not throw anything into the cage. And they don¿t. Unfortunately, Ivan doesn¿t play by the usual werewolf rules, and the thugs find themselves suddenly responsible for a ferocious escaped beast. One who can transform at will. One who enjoys killing in human form as much as he enjoys killing as a monster. If George and Lou want to save their careers, dozens of people, and their own lives, they need to recapture him. Because Ivan the werewolf is in the mood for a murder spree¿ From Jeff Strand, the three-time Bram Stoker Award nominated author of PRESSURE, comes this action-packed, blood-soaked tale of werewolf terror! Strand does an excellent job defining and playing with George and Lou¿s characters. You absolutely love them and find it almost easy to forget that they are actually thugs. Ivan the Werewolf is a smart ass, over-confident douche-bag that you hope will get his com-uppins in the end. Michelle was a pretty worthless character ¿ I think she was basically added in to appeal to the women who might read the book. Most women don¿t read books that are devoid of feminine wiles. She wasn¿t all that likeable and I really didn¿t care too much about what happened to her. Ivan loves to play games so makes his pursuit and his fleeing into games where there can be either a good or bad outcome for the thugs. When Ivan loses any bet, he is sure to point out that not only is he a werewolf but also a big liar. The banter between Lou and George makes me laugh out loud in several areas even while they are bleeding almost to death ¿ though Lou does promise to give George a five minute warning if he plans to bleed to death anytime soon. Written well and with little extra flair one doesn¿t need for a good story, Strand does fabulously. I loved this book!!! It was 640 pages long yet seemed like maybe 200. I can¿t believe it went so fast! Shining is about that and it took me over a week to read it! This will not be my last Jeff Strand book ¿ I have another one now called ¿Dweller¿. It looks like it will be good as well ¿ though I plan to wait to read it for a while. I easily give Wolf Hunt an A+!

This book was fantastic! Jeff Strand has the delightful ability to combine viscious blood and gore with laugh out loud comedy. I found myself laughing out loud all the way through this book. Ivan is completely diabolical (poor Diane) and deserves everything that happens to him (I must admit my love of werewolves found me falling in love with him as well). I'm totally in love with George and Lou and would love to pick up another book involving those two chuckleheads! They are the sweetest thungs for hire I've ever read. Now that George and Lou know what things actually go bump in the night, I'd love it if those two started a new business of hunting them down (after all George has vowed to turn over a new leaf). Jeff Strand writes humor and wit into every chapter. I loved reading this book and would recommend it to anyone who loves humor and gore in one delicious combination.
