    I only haven't read this because I've never seen it as a book. Is it a manuscript for the movie only or is it a novel? I'll google and see!

    But I loved the movie! I thought it was pretty tame, so when my younger kids were 8 and 10, I let them watch it with me (there were a couple parts where I had to ff through racy scenes) and it scared them! Which is, of course, the point of a horror movie, but mayhap they were a little young.

    A friend lent me the books, absolutely ages ago. I'm sure I'm right in thinking it was a serialisation, a collection of slim books. Am I right? Someone will be along in a bit to let us know Holly.

    I thought it was one slim book, with full page colour pictures.

    It is one book. I believe I have only seen it in a slim,larger size paperback.

    Yes, because the pictures were amazing. I don't always like the pictures in King's books. (I'm not complaining...I don't buy the books for pictures.). But this book, the pictures were worthy of being a book themselves.

    And I think, each chapter could have stood alone as a story, but yet, they also went together.

    From Wikipedia:
    Cycle of the Werewolf
    is a short horror novel by Stephen King, featuring illustrations by comic book artist Bernie Wrightson. Each chapter is a short story unto itself. It tells the story of a werewolf haunting a small town as the moon turns full once every month. It was published as a limited edition hardcover in 1983 by Land of Enchantment, and in 1985 as a mass-market trade paperback by Signet.

    This is what mine looks like: (trade paperback)

    AAARRRRRGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!! :m_rage: We have this wonderful section on the core section of the site called The Library that we spent hundreds of hours working on to put out information to keep you informed about books. Here's the entry for Cycle of the Werewolf.

    I have that copy (the trade paperback), and another copy that has both the story CYCLE OF THE WEREWOLF and the screenplay for SILVER BULLET in it. It's pretty entertaining and interesting to have the two together for comparison :) My kids like the movie, too.

    I like how the telling follows the course/cycle of a year...chapter headings the months of the year...although I'd have to pull mine off the shelve to see where in the year it begins. Maybe it ends at the end of October? Halloween? Or maybe it starts and ends there? Someone else go and look. :)

    I feel you pain, Ms. Mod. I was going to post the same thing! Maybe some people do not realize there is a whole web site that exists alongside the SKMB?

    :nope:

    I think they forget because they come straight to the SKMB. :down:

    Hmmm... maybe there needs to be a bit more "cross advertising" between the 2 boards? Just a thought. :hmm:

    Ms. Mod, you surprised me into going to look at the website, and I realized that it's been YEARS since I was last there! THE OFFICE section was being worked on, for Pete's sake, and it no longer exists :p LOTS of interesting information--thanks for reminding us :)

    I'm so sorry! You're right - I've bookmarked SKMB and bypass all the info!
