THE WEREWOLF (1896): FEMALE WEREWOLF

WerewolfTHE WEREWOLF (1896) – By Clemence Annie Housman. Halloween month continues at Balladeer’s Blog! This neglected story features a female author writing about a FEMALE WEREWOLF so that makes it a bit special right there.

The Werewolf is set in 1890s Denmark. Amidst werewolf attacks plaguing the countryside a Danish family finds itself being charmed by a sultry, seductive woman who calls herself White Fell. The woman travels alone by night so is obviously the werewolf at large. Unfortunately her potent beauty allays suspicion and even pits brothers Sweyn and Christian against each other.  

Eventually after the family’s youngest child and the grandmother get added to the werewolf’s body count Christian enacts a plan to end the lycanthrope’s reign of terror. This enjoyable tale features the werewolf variation which finds those so cursed transforming every night at midnight, not just on nights of the full moon. ++
