Health Concerns for Werewolves

Werewolves don’t have as many weaknesses as humans or vampires, but they do have weaknesses all the same, and while some of these are easily recalled to the mind, no one thinks of the most important health concerns for werewolves.

For Werewolves with iPhones…

Imagine being in the grocery store or hanging out with friends, forgetting the time, and allowing everyone in on your very big secret! Whether you’re a werewolf that only changes…

The Werewolf of Hüsby

Time again for another supposedly true tale reported in the middle ages. This werewolf occurrence happened in Hüsby, Germany. In this small village lived an old, penny-pinching woman.

There are as many legends surrounding werewolves as there are werewolves themselves but most recently it was the Christmas myth that intrigued me.

That’s Just Berserk!

We may not often use the term ‘berserk’ to describe werewolves but, it certainly is quite fitting.

Being Human & the American Remake

George Sands is the werewolf in Being Human, and although he’s great, he’s also kind of a nerd; with an IQ of 156, George is intelligent, though socially inept, and refers to being a werewolf as “that thing that happens to me once a month.” So, in a way, George sort of deals with being…
