Fast-paced, compelling, and gruesomely violent, The Wolfen is the first novel by bestselling horror novelist, Whitley Strieber.

Following the savage killing of two New York City policemen, George Wilson and Becky Neff are two detectives bound together by their strange and passionate hunt for the Wolfen. Strieber’s novel breathed new life into the werewolf genre, building upon the traditional myth and lore of the lycanthrope to create a genetically superior crossbreed of human and wolf that has existed in the shadows for centuries.

Upon its release in 1978, the Washington Post called The Wolfen “a howling success.” Likewise, St. James Guide to Horror, Ghost and Gothic Writers deemed it, “an amazingly effective debut novel that turns the werewolf story completely on its head. Breathtakingly suspenseful throughout.”

In 1981, The Wolfen was adapted into a horror movie starring Albert Finney, directed by Michael Wadleigh.

The signed limited edition of The Wolfen by Whitley Strieber is presented in three states: Lettered, Numbered and Artist editions.

Magnificent Volume

I found the Wolfen to be an excellent read (if a bit dated).The book itself is beautiful, printed on smooth, high-quality paper and accompanied by excellent paintings. It now sits next to me other Suntup Editions.

Blown Away

This was my first Suntup edition and it blew me away. As a collector, I can honestly say Suntup editions are the best being produced today - there are a few other print houses that come close but Suntup takes the lead for quality and at a costs that is reasonable. I have ordered a few other editons since this first one and have been checking the secondary market for editions that I missed.
