Women Who Run with the Werewolves: Tales of Blood, Lust, and Metamorphosis - Pam Keesey, Paul Allen, Michael W. Lucas, Tom Piccirelli, Thomas S. Roche, Melanie Tem, Mari Hersh Tudor, Jody Brewer, Renee Charles, Suzy McKee Charnas, Steve Eller, Barbara Ferrenz, Charlee Jacob, Pamela Jensen, Ursula K. Le Guin This book could have been so much better than it turned out to be. The world of female werewolves is representative of a part of the horror genre that has been little explored. Aside from 3 or 4 exceptions, the stories were flat. One of the dullest stories by far in this collection was the one with the Jamaican woman werewolf. It read like a series of disjointed vignettes, haphazardly patched together, leaving no sense of what she was really like, either as a woman or as a Wolf.

Sadly, there are too few novels out in the market now that provide a well-developed and credible treatment of the female werewolf (the exceptions being the novels "BITTEN", "STOLEN","SHADOW OF THE BEAST", and "NAKED BRUNCH").

I give this collection 1 star only because I hope that it will inspire other writers to develop more works (short stories and novels) featuring well-rounded, down-to-earth, real women - who just happen to be werewolves.
