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.

Love that it matches the art portfolio!

The mockup looked pretty cool, but didn't prepare me for the awesomeness of the real thing! I love the unique material of the slipcase that matches the art portfolio!

The Wolfen - yet another Suntup stunner

Haven’t seen a Suntup edition I did not like. The fact I love The Wolfen (numbered) should not come as a surprise. And the matching art portfolio makes this a perfect match!

Superb Motiff

Beautifully designed; the horizontal patterned textured Japanese cloth with the pitch black Japanese cloth really gives this book an ultra urban feel, coupled with the claw scratch make this a stunning book.
The case is equally astonishing with the rough feel surface, the pattern, the shine, the lettering. Top Shelf Book!
