COMPETITION: Win a copy of EMPIRE OF WILD by Cherie Dimaline


Cherie Dimaline (

Weidenfeld & Nicolson (


Thanks to the lovely people at Weidenfeld & Nicolson, I have a copy of Cherie Dimaline’s Empire of Wild to give away.

Let’s have some fun with it: at its heart, Empire of Wild is a werewolf story, relying on the stories and legends of one of Canada’s indigenous communities as the basis for its plot. To be in with a chance to win a copy of this brilliant book, leave a comment below and tell me about your favourite werewolf fiction: novels, short stories, comics, poetry are all fair game. Let’s stay away from the visual arts, otherwise we’ll just end up discussing why Ginger Snaps is the best werewolf film ever to be worthy of the name.

I’ll close comments at midnight GMT on Sunday night, 11th April, and will announce the winner on Monday 12th April. UK only.

  1. Well this is a new topic for me, so I will have to say the classic Little Red Riding Hood! Super-scary, and a story that gets even creepier the older you get!

  2. When I was younger I loved the Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater. There were a lot of books of this genre around, and most I didn’t enjoy as I didn’t think they were well written, but this series really appealed to me.

  3. I love a good werewolf movie so this would be great to read but not alone Haha

  4. I was trying to think if i had read any werewolf books and I’ve read the bloody chamber, angela carter years ago. I think MJ’s thriller would be the first werewolf I remember.

  5. I’m not sure that I’ve ever read a book that features werewolves. I’m a music lover though and can tell you my favourite werewolf songs – Bark at The Moon (Ozzy Osbourne), Of Wolf and Man (Metallica) and Werewolves of London (Warren Zevon). There are quite a few others too.

  6. Can’t even remember what the name of the book was something like detective move set in new York about a werewolf ripping homeless people to bits so scary does anyone know this book,love to read it again thanx
