The Book of Werewolves: Being an Account of a Terrible Superstition (2016)

“The Book of Werewolves: Being an Account of a Terrible Superstition” by Sabine Baring-Gould & edited by Tarl Warwick.

This work is one of the finest ever penned on the subject of lycanthropy and werewolf lore.

Written in the mid 1800s by the rather eccentric Sabine Baring-Gould, it covers more than 1,000 years of lore from a half dozen paths – the berserker of Norse lore, French mythology, and then-modern anecdotes of cannibalism and madness.

Not relegating the werewolf just to a secular and skeptical study, nor simply to spiritual banter, Baring-Gould manages to compress an enormous span of historical material into his work; a work which is no doubt of value to the academic and those involved with the occult at the same time.
