The Book of Were-Wolves

A reference book for the 19th-century werewolf seeker, Sabine Baring-Gould’s ‘The Book of Were-Wolves’ explores the trying tales and magic myths of werewolves from ancient folklore, Greek and Norse myths.

Unpacking the truth behind legendary beliefs, cases of Lycanthropy, and tips and tricks for curing yourself of a werewolf conviction, Baring-Gould deep dives into the dark psychological reasons as to how and why people may believe themselves to be part wolf.

Asking the age-old question of how anyone can feel capable of maiming and killing another being, ‘The Book of Were-Wolves’ invites readers to ponder how and why some members of society may harbour secret desires to inflict cruelty on other animals - big and small.

Weaving an intoxicating narrative, ‘The Book of Were-Wolves’ is ideal for fans of Netflix’s ‘Werewolves Within’.

Sabine Baring-Gould (1834-1924) was a British novelist and Anglican priest. A prolific writer, his bibliography spans more than one thousand publications, including the best-known hymns ‘Onward, Christian Soldiers’, ‘Sing Lullaby’ and ‘Now the Day is Over’.

Baring-Gould's interest in folklore led to the publication of one of the most frequently cited studies of lycanthropy, ‘The Book of Were-Wolves’.
