"Here howl by night the werewolves, and the souls
of those that knew me well in other days."
H.P. Lovecraft, Aletheia Phrikodes
"This is the name of a transformation of a human into a monstrous cannibal wolf."
"The Werewolf is essentially a human form during the day but transforms, according to different versions, either at the height of the full moon, or by donning a special wolf skin, or permanently by some curse."
Carol Rose, Giants, Monsters and Dragons
