Werewolves stalk the night in this anthology of lycanthrope-themed short fiction featuring many of today’s most renowned voices in horror and fantasy.

The first touch of moonlight transforms the kindly, sad-eyed stranger into something else — something vicious, terrible, and beyond the reach of reason. The curse has taken hold. From fog-shrouded heaths and urban mazes to fantastic realms and unsettling futurescapes, the werewolves are on the prowl. . . .

With stories from such world-renowned voices in horror and fantasy as Peter S. Beagle, Ramsey Campbell, Nancy A. Collins, Jonathan Carroll, Charles de Lint, Harlan Ellison®, Neil Gaiman, Joe R. Lansdale, Tanith Lee, Ursula K. Le Guin, George R. R. Martin, Michael Moorcock, and Gene Wolfe, Curse of the Full Moon presents a remarkable collection of works that examine the legend of the werewolf from a wide variety of insightful and inventive perspectives. The battle against the beast within can create heroes or horrors, and only the light of the full moon reveals which it is that you face: your savior or your doom.
