What Would Happen if Werewolves Were Discovered?
There is a question I often ask authors when I am doing interviews, a question that has nothing to do with their book, but one that’s fun to ask in spite of that (cliché interviews are SO boring). Every author has given me a different, yet fantastic, answer so far, and I love hearing every opinion on it – including yours. Which is why it’s now your turn Dear Readers, your turn to let your voice be heard! As enjoyable as it is to ask authors questions, I love hearing from you guys too, so here’s a question for you – If werewolves were discovered to exist today, do you think our society would accept them or try to destroy them?
“Our society has enough trouble dealing with the relatively minor differences between human beings. If a werewolf turned up on Main Street, you can bet the silver bullets would be flying.” – Lisa Hendrix, author of The Immortal Brotherhood series
“I think the first reaction would be to destroy them. Esp. down south. I can see a series of books that explores racism this way, in a lot similar to the way True Blood uses Vampires to talk about homosexuality.” – Paul Jessup, author of Werewolves
“Depends on how many people they’re eating.” – S. Andrew Swann, author of The Wolfbreed series
Now it’s your turn, what do you think? If werewolves were discovered to exist today, do you think our society would accept them or try to destroy them?
Personally, I feel that we would destroy them, or at least try to. As Lisa said, we have a hard enough time dealing with minor differences, I can’t imagine how bad it would be if something as big as actual horror movie werewolves existed.
