Werewolves in Popular Culture

Posted by: Nick Redfern on May 9th, 2012

Earlier today, a friend alerted me to this forthcoming book: Werewolves and Other Shape-Shifters in Popular Culture by Kimberley McMahon and Roslyn Weaver. I must stress I haven’t seen the book yet – which is not surprising, since it isn’t published until September – but, I’m guessing that it’s going to be a highly valuable resource tool for anyone with a specific interest in werewolves.

And, you can find out more right here.

    Thank you for the book info. I find it very interesting how popular culture seems to define these mythical (or not so mythical) creatures. Not long ago, my husband wrote a Book, Digital Knight. In it he presented Werewolves, Vampires and other myth based creatures, with a twist that didn’t necessarily mesh with popular culture. It really affected how folks liked or disliked the books. For the most part, folks were uncomfortable with the idea that they didn’t fit what popular culture dictated. In a way, I can see how popular culture effects what someone sees, or doesn’t see. This is why creatures like Bigfoot, and ETs seemed to have changed from gorillas and imps (devils) of the turn of the century to the iconic media driven images of today.

    The book is actually out (as of yesterday), well ahead of the September date that was originally canvassed. :) The publishers are already selling it through their website, and we anticipate that Amazon and other stockists will have copies in stock very soon.

    Ros & I hope it does indeed become a “highly valuable resource” and thank you for your post. :)
