An amazing collectible that will enjoy a special status in your collection. This first edition was produced in a limited quantity of only 7500, and it is even more scarce signed and inscribed by the author.

Personally signed and dated by Stephen King in 1984 (only one year after publication) with a personal inscription to a fan.

Publisher's Note

The isolated Maine village of Tarker Mills is terrorized by the horrifying bloodthirsty creature stalking its inhabitants at the time of the full moon.

Synopsis

Originally conceived as a story-calendar, "Cycle of the Werewolf" grew to be a beautifully illustrated novella in 12 segments about Marty Coslaw, a young boy who must convince the townspeople of Tarker's Mills that there is a werewolf in their midst.

Cycle of the Werewolf is a horror novel released in 1983 by Stephen King, featuring illustrations by renowned comic book artist Bernie Wrightson. 127 pages long, each chapter is a short story unto itself. This book is geared for short story classic horror enthusiasts.

The novel came about when King was asked to write 12 "chapters" of a short story to go along with a werewolf-themed illustrated calendar. King being King, however, the story became much longer than could fit in the calendar format. The project was eventually abandoned and the story was published in novel form instead.

The story was adapted for the screen as Silver Bullet. The film was released in 1985 starring Corey Haim and Gary Busey, directed by Dan Attias, from a screenplay by King.





Hardcover: Near Fine with slight edge-wear in a couple of the corners and a small bump as shown. Otherwise a wonderful bright clean copy with a square and tight spine. The pages are crisp and clean, with no marks, writings, or stamps. A well-cared for book with sharp corners and clear graphics all around. No bookplates attached or indication of any removed.

Dust-jacket: Near Fine for this notoriously fragile dust-jacket. A bright dust jacket with art work that is clear and not faded. A wonderful bright clean copy with illustrations. Slight creasing along bottom edge as shown. Two closed short tears and several creases.
