Glen Duncan’s The Last Werewolf is now available in paperback, so if you haven’t read it yet then what are you waiting for? This is the very best werewolf novel I’ve ever read, and it easily scores a place in my top ten horror novels of all time:
World-weary, cynical and borderline suicidal, werewolf Jake Marlowe is the last of his kind. After centuries of existence neither the pleasures of man nor beast have retained their luster. Facing eternity of loneliness, Jake is seriously considering whether dying at the silvered blade of a werewolf hunter might be a better alternative. Does he have the courage to keep living?
The Last Werewolf is one of maybe a handful of books I’ve bought multiple times. I initially purchased it on Kindle, only to become enrapt with the beautiful hardcover edition – of course, I had to have it. Later, I ran across a signed first edition, so naturally that had to come home as well. I’ve given copies of it away, foisted it upon readers, and even had a copy sent to a certain werewolf-loving celebrity of my acquaintance.
So having bothered everyone I know about this book, I turn to you, Suvudu readers: You must read this wonderful novel of existential horror. It’s out now. Read it and then grab the sequel, Talullah Rising, this summer.
