The isolated Maine village of Tarker Mills is terrorized by the horrifying bloodthirsty creature stalking its inhabitants at the time of the full moon.
Originally conceived as a story-calendar, "Cycle of the Werewolf" grew to be a beautifully illustrated novella in 12 segments about Marty Coslaw, a young boy who must convince the townspeople of Tarker's Mills that there is a werewolf in their midst.
The first scream came from the snowbound railwayman who felt the fangs ripping at his throat.
The next month there was a scream of ecstatic agony from the woman attacked in her snug bedroom.
Now scenes of unbelieving horror come each time the full moon shines on the isolated Maine town of Tarker Mills.
No one knows who will be attacked next.
But one thing is sure.
When the moon grows fat, a paralyzing fear sweeps through Tarker Mills. for snarls that sound like human words
can be heard whining through the wind. And all around are the footprints of a monster whose hunger cannot be sated...
Cycle of the Werewolf is a horror novel released in 1983 by Stephen King, featuring illustrations by renowned comic book artist Bernie Wrightson. 127 pages long, each chapter is a short story unto itself. This book is geared for short story classic horror enthusiasts.
The novel came about when King was asked to write 12 "chapters" of a short story to go along with a werewolf-themed illustrated calendar. King being King, however, the story became much longer than could fit in the calendar format. The project was eventually abandoned and the story was published in novel form instead.
The story was adapted for the screen as Silver Bullet. The film was released in 1985 starring Corey Haim and Gary Busey, directed by Dan Attias, from a screenplay by King.
