Endore's classic werewolf novel - now back in paperback for the first time in over forty years - helped define a genre and set a new standard in horror fiction.

The werewolf is one of the great iconic figures of horror in folklore, legend, film, and literature. And connoisseurs of horror fiction know that The Werewolf of Paris is a cornerstone work.

Endore’s classic novel has not only withstood the test of time since it was first published in 1933, but it boldly used and portrayed elements of sexual compulsion in ways that had never been seen before, at least not in horror literature.

In this gripping work of historical fiction, Endore’s werewolf, an outcast named Bertrand Caillet, travels across pre-Revolutionary France seeking to calm the beast within. Stunning in its sexual frankness and eerie, fog-enshrouded visions, this novel was decidedly influential for the generations of horror and science fiction authors who came afterward.

About the Author:

A Hollywood screenwriter who collaborated on scripts like Mark of the Vampire, as well as receiving an Oscar nomination for The Story of G.I. Joe, Guy Endore also wrote several novels, including Nightmare and King of Paris. A cult favorite of fans of horror, he is best known for The Werewolf of Paris, which occupies a significant position in werewolf literature, much in the same way that Dracula does for vampire literature. Guy Endore died in 1970.

Review:

“First published in 1933, Guy Endore’s The Werewolf of Paris may finally be coming into its own. Like those other horror classics, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Bram Stoker’s Dracula, this notorious novel doesn’t just aim for raw head-and-bloody-bones gruesomeness. Perhaps its closest analogue may actually be still another classic about the savage demons inside us all, Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr.Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Endore stresses how much we are all the playthings of dark impulses beyond our understanding.”
- Michael Dirda, The Washington Post
