If you are looking for accounts and retelling of encounters with werewolves, this is a great starting point.

Be mindful these stories were published in 1865 and the content will have "current" events the author had encountered as well as mythological findings in terms of what was known and understood at that time. From the legends of using magical wolf skins to the terrifying accounts of lycanthropy, you will find both known and forgotten accounts, including a variety of content ranging from Greek and Nordic Mythology to superstitions in a variety of cultures like were-beavers, were-bears, were-birds, were-hyenas, accounts of lycanthropy, serial killers, and even a in-depth account of Gilles of Rais (Joan of Arc's companion and child-killer) and his accusations, trial, and execution. It is amazing to see the variety of cultures covered side-by-side as the author takes us to North America, Africa, India, France, and even Iceland and Russia.

There are overlaps in vampire lore, especially midway as he ventures in the real-life accounts, men and women both abandoning their humanity and indulging in horrific actions. From eating people to mauling them, you will find names, dates, and information forgotten. This includes stories involving Elizabeth Bathory and Jean Grenier.
