Presented by M. Leigh Hood

Explore stories of “werewolves” from the Middle Ages to modern times and their influence on gothic fiction.

Before we called them serial killers, gruesome killers who targeted the weak – or killed at random – had a different name. Fiction reflects truth, and truth sometimes mirrors fiction. Dig into the origins of werewolf lore and explore the legends, hunts, and trials that put werewolves into the history books.

M. Leigh Hood is a rare beast of the Cincinnati wilds, most often found walking her monstrous hound, Shuck, or working hard to exacerbate her carpal tunnel syndrome at the computer. Her work appears in Fairy Tales Punk’d Volume II, Cincinnati Magazine, and the in-development MonThology project.
