Cycle of the Werewolf Picture

Description

A novel set in Tarkers Mills, Maine, where each month a victim is slain by a savage werewolf. Age, sex and status mean nothing to the roving beast. Finally a 10 year old disabled boy finds out that the werewolf is really one of the local town residents - one that would normally not be under investigation.

Planning carefully, he lures the werewolf into his trap and plans a final explosive night of revenge for all the deaths it has caused.

Initially this was supposed to be a small calendar with pictures produced by Berni Wrightson and vignettes by King, but he found that the strict size limitation was a problem, and too limiting. He notified Zavista that his calendar idea was unworkable, but he had in fact written a small book.
