Autobiography of a Werewolf Hunter by Brian P. Easton

Nietzsche once said, "If you stare at the abyss long enough, the abyss stares back at you." Well... maybe he said it more than once, but who am I to know that?

Anyway, the award-winning Autobiography of a Werewolf Hunter takes that concept and asks what happens when a hunter becomes as dark as the things he hunts. It's an interesting idea and the cover is an eye-catcher.

You can check out some reviews at SF Reader and The Harrow if you want to see what all the fuss is about. Apparently the original title was When The Autumn Moon Is Bright, but don't let that throw you.

It takes more than silver bullets to kill a werewolf...

Sylvester James knows what it is to be haunted. His mother died giving birth to him and his father never let him forget it; until the night he was butchered by a werewolf--the night a full moon ruined his life. Alone in the world, Sylvester is taken in by Michael Winterfox, a Cheyenne mystic. Winterfox, once a werewolf hunter, trains the boy to be a warrior--teaching him how to block out pain, stalk, fight, and kill. Bit by bit all that makes Sylvester human is sacrificed to the hunt. Now, Sylvester's hatred has become a monster all its own, robbing him of conscience and conviction as surely as the Beast's bite. As he follows his vendetta into the outlands of the occult, options become scarce. And he learns it takes more than silver bullets to kill a werewolf...

To kill a werewolf, it takes a hunter with a perfect willingness to die.
