werewolf is touted touted a novel in many places But this really isn t even ong enough to be considered a novella It s a short story I paced myself but could probably have read this whole thing in under an hour This observation is not a complaint I just want to make sure anyone reading this based on my review know exactly what they will be seeingAlso every chapter includes artwork by Bernie Wrightson These pictures are very cool and add a Beyond Buds: Marijuana ExtractsHash, Vaping, Dabbing, Edibles and Medicines lot to the story however they are sometimes a spoiler and depict a scene coming up in the next few pages Since they arearge and colorful it is hard for your eye not to be drawn to them So proceed with caution if you want to earn the story from the words and not the picturesHere is one that is not too spoilerishI have been working my way through King s works chronologically and I have to get a shout out to Dichotomy Girl for getting my mind right in the comments on her review of The Gunslinger so that I did not forget this one I put The Talisman on hold about a month ago and just got in my mind that is what I would read next after Pet Sematary If it wasn t for her I would have started The Talisman before Cycle of the Werewolf and it would have ruined the whole thing I would have had to start over Well maybe not but it makes the save so Under the ight of the full moon a werewolf stalks the people of Tarker s Mills Can anyone stop The Cycle of the WerewolfI first read this in high school younger than my dog is now It took me a few chapters to realize that Silver Bullet was based on it Anyway I found it for a buck at a yard sale a couple years ago and decided I could use a rereadLike Kemper told me while I was reading it Cycle of the Werewolf is essentially a Stephen King calendar Each chapter is a month out of the year the werewolf is stalking the town accompanied by one or of Bernie Wrightson s fantastic illustrations Stephen King s writing is as crisp as ever Also he wrote this during his prime so it isn t bloated or over written in the eastI actually prefer the movie in this case It has a ot depth Marty Coslaw doesn t show up until halfway through the book The book and movie hit most of the same beats I think the book might rely on Bernie Wrightson s illustrations a Nuclear Power: A Very Short Introduction little too much For the most part it s just a collection of werewolf attacks with not aot else going on That being said I did Nymph Fly Tying Techniues like the structure with every chapter being a month of the werewolf s reign of terrorWhile it is strictly a Bist Stephen King book Cycle of the Werewolf is by far the best Stephen King novel ever turned into a movie starring Cory Haim and Gary Busey Three out of five stars After I abandoned two werewolf novels The Silver Wolf by Alice Borchardt and Bitten by Kelley Armstrong that were nothing but Kibble I ran for cover with Cycle of the Werewolf a ycanthrope tale that I knew would deliver authored by Stephen King and illustrated by Bernie Wrightson the artist who d collaborated with King on the motion picture CreepshowPublished in imited edition hardcover in 1983 and mass market paperback in 1985 the project was the brainstorm of Land of Enchantment Press which approached King to pen twelve 500 word vignettes based on the months of the calendar with illustrations by Wrightson to accompany them King apparently found this production uota too restrictive and fleshed the vignettes into short chapters based on the concept of a werewolf slave to an astronomically creative version of the unar cycle terrorizing the fictional town of Tarker s Mills The novella was thriftier than I remembered If the car wash is busy you could probably read the book in the time it takes to get your ride washed and waxed The vignettes are ghoulishly fun EC Comics inspired tales of terror with a werewolf stalking a fresh victim The monster movie or horror comics fan hiding in you will jump right out Wrightson s illustrations which include beautifully rendered two page black and white spreads introducing the NEW MONTH ARE TIMELESSLY CAPTIVATINGTHE VIGNETTES ARE ULTIMATELY PULLED month are timelessly captivatingThe vignettes are ultimately pulled by Marty Coslaw a member of the eague which would include Mark Petrie in Salem s Lot and The Loser s Club in It children who ve read all the monster movie magazines collected the toys and recognize the threat to their community before the grown ups Marty stands out by virtue of being disabled he s confined to a wheelchair and his relationship with his Uncle Al who proves to be a attentive parent than Marty Terror began in January by the ight of the full moonThe first scream came from the snowbound railwayman who felt the werewolf’s fangs ripping at his throat The next month there was a scream of ecstatic agony from the. R then you don t really need this book unless you just want a digital copy for back up purposes There is absolutely nothing new here The novel will cost you a whopping twelve dollars for 128 pages However if you do not already own a copy this might be your best option Finding a descent used paperback version may be a daunting task I may be the only one who got the wrong impression about this one however just in case I thought I d mention it and vent my frustrations at the same timeOverall despite my frustration and chagrin I m still glad I downloaded it it is a classic after all 4 stars I picked this novella up in college and shortly thereafter the movie SILVER BULLET was made from the story CYCLE OF THE WEREWOLF is sort of an under the radar King book Probably not the most talked about but I think it s a hidden treasure I ove the author s monthlyChronicling Of The Monster S Evolution In The Small Townof the monster s evolution in the small town Tarker s Mills Maine Part of what makes this a 5 star book for me were the superb illustrations which are similar to those found in CREEPSHOW This is a terrific tale by one of the masters I really enjoyed this story As with other Stephen King short stories I ve read this one is really good Like Children of the Corn and Shawshank Redemption it is entertaining to the point and very effective The writing kept he hooked and I was finished before I knew itThe story takes place over a year with 12 intermittent episodes as the mysterious deaths occur with each full moon The story is told in timeframes of months and a horrific murderdeath happens each time The towns people have their speculations a wild animal a drifter a deranged person with wolf monster mask and costume Eventually our wheelchair bound hero Marty discovers the truth I honestly Little Tree liked this better than the 1985 movie Silver Bullett The movie hit aot of key points Grady getting killed while flying his kite at the park the fireworks scene Reverend Lowe and others but the story flowed better The book was very readable and uick I would recommend this to any Stephen King fan Thanks Cycle of Werewolf by Stephen King is NOT about a poor Werewolf searching for his stolen bicycle without which he will not be able to stalk his victims during the full moonNo seriously it s not Such a confusing title The cycle here refers to a year of the gruesome werewolf attacks from January to December 1983 in a small town called Tarker s Mill All murders took place during the full moon and they were committed by a classic murderous Werewolf I got to use the word Classic because the modern Werewolves Aliran Politik Dan Aidah Dalam Islam looksike overgrown foxesThis is Welcome to the small town of Tarker s Mill in Maine It s a night in January and a Snow Blizzard Has Choked The blizzard has choked the with snow and the wind rises to a shrill scream What happens in such an ambience Terror attack A bid bad werewolf brutalizes a defenseless manStephen King s Cycle of the Werewolf is a Guide de l'employeur culturel long story and not a fullength novel Anyways the we I Der Heimliche Fürstensohn love werewolves and I cannotie Science and Democracy lolNo idea why werewolves of all mystical creatures are what Iove so much Maybe it s the animal aspect But I ve always oved tales about them so when I heard that the King of Horror had written a story about a werewolf of course I had to read itWe re in Tarker s Mills Maine in 1984 The book is divided into 12 chapters each depicting the events or one specific event in the respective month of the year So we start in January and come full circle by the end of the bookIn between we get winter snows blizzards downpours sunshine kite fyling fireworks and slaughter Oh so much glorious slaughter This beast really is hungry for the so much glorious slaughter This beast really is hungry for the of the hunt as much as the bloodmeat itselfThe reader gets to investigate who of the townspeople could be this mythological creature while the bodies pile upIn addition to the story this edition also has illustrations by Bernie Wrightson I really iked his gritty depictions of key scenes in every chapter which is why I posted them in my 12 status updates There are a few all in black and white but the main illustrations are in colour And I Megalodon: Fact or Fiction? loved them The wolf wasn t always depicted the way SK had described it in the text but that was OK There are aot of different ways werewolves are portrayed and I m glad this artist s rendition was exactly how I see them tooA nice (Becoming Orgasmic: A Sexual and Personal Growth Programme for Women) By Julia R.
