WEREWOLF NIGHTMARE is my own homage to the Amicus horror anthology movies I have always loved. The story is a portmanteau novella featuring four werewolf tales, with a framing story about a horror magazine editor who visits the secluded country home of an elderly writer to read four werewolf stories he has written with a view to publication in the magazine. But as the night unfolds, it soon becomes horrifyingly apparent that perhaps there is more truth than fiction in the disturbing lycanthropic tales that the old man has written . . .
