The question 'What was there before creation?' is meaningless. Time is a property of creation, therefore before creation there was no before creation.
Werewolves were far more terrifying than vampires. It is probably the idea of seeing the human within the beast and knowing you can't reach it. It might as well be a great white shark. There is no sitting down and discussing Proust with it, which the traditional vampire model seems to leave room for. You can have a conversation.
One of the things that seems absolutely clear to me about werewolves - with their canine makeup - is that they would be dogs, as it were.
While I was writing 'The Last Werewolf,' I didn't watch any horror movies.
We have all seen werewolf transformations hundreds of times on screen.
There are two ways to write a werewolf novel - you can examine the genre conventions, or you can say, 'What would it be like if I were a werewolf?'
