Wolfsbane and Mistletoe

Previous: Many Bloody Returns | Next: Death’s Excellent Vacation

The holidays can bring out the beast in anyone—particularly lycanthropes. Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner have harvested the scariest, funniest, saddest werewolf tales by an outstanding pack of authors including Patricia Briggs, Keri Arthur, Karen Chance, Simon R. Green, and more…

Whether wolfing down a holiday feast (use your imagination) or craving some hair of the dog on New Year’s morning, the werewolves in these frighteningly original stories will surprise, delight, amuse, and scare the pants off readers who love a little wolfsbane with their mistletoe.


“The expertise of 15 wolfishly inspired authors is dished up into a combination of stories that run the gamut from funny to downright creepy. There’s a little something for every taste — literally!”

“I didn’t think they could top MANY BLOODY RETURNS, but WOLFSBANE just might have raised the bar […] an excellent volume, not a bad story in the bunch.”


“Fifteen exceptional authors are brought together to make WOLFSBANE AND MISTLETOE a captivating collection. From stories of urban fantasy to those edged in horror, this anthology offers a fun and sometimes gory variety. Edited by Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner, WOLFSBANE AND MISTLETOE offers up the Christmas spirit in a wonderfully wicked way. Each story is written as a stand-alone, but among them readers will find entertaining additions to some of the most followed series.”
