If you're looking for a great way to kill a lunch break, pick up "Cycle of the Werewolf". A crisp scary tale about a small town's year dealing with a Beast in their midst. I don't know if you would categorize this tale as a novella or a long short story, either way, you'll breeze through the story in an hour.

As the tale opens, it's a cold, snowy evening in January, and as the citizens of Tarker's Mill are tucking themselves in, the Beast takes it's first victim. The tale plays out with each chapter centered around each month's full moon. The body count rises, and the people of Tarker's Mill begin to wonder if they have a monster or a madman walking among them, and it seems that only 10 year Marty Coslaw may know the answer.

As you can imagine, there is almost no character development here, and honestly as I read I kept waiting for Marty and Uncle Al to play a larger role in the story (I'm sure this is because of the "Silver Bullet" film adaptation), but even our main characters are little more than secondary characters here. I guess the only character that's fleshed out to any degree is the monster (no spoilers here, so I won't name them).

If you like King's short fiction, you'll like this story. If you are looking for something with a bit more depth, you may want to pick up something else. I would like to note the artwork included in the novel. While I enjoyed the drawings, I found that their placement in the story almost always provided spoilers about how and when the monster would attack. Maybe they could push each illustration back by one page?

Cycle Of The Werewolf is a fantastic Novelette, and my personal favorite werewolf story to read. Keep in mind though, this is indeed a novelette, so don't expect it to be a long read.

If you've never read 'Cycle' but instead seen the film 'Silver Bullet', which is based on this novelette, you will find a lot of differences. One of the biggest ones to me, is the relationship between Marty and his sister.

The book is split up into months, acting as chapters, which gives it a nice variation in the weather, and over all mood of the characters. One of the most appealing aspects of this book, is the amazing artwork. Matter of fact, there's so many illustrations, that it kind of feels like a text heavy graphic novel.

The copy I received from Amazon arrived in perfect condition, and I would highly recommend this to anyone 18 and over.

I have to say that I read this after watching Silver Bullet (2 or 300 times), so I will have to say that I was shocked how different this book is from the movie that's based on it. I'm not talking subtle differences either, outside two concepts this book is totally different than the movie.

That being said, I loved this book. Loved it. It only took me a few hours to read it, it's very short. The art work is great in it, and King's prose is on great display here. It's an easy read, it's a fun read, and it's got some nice gore to it.

Good werewolf books are few and far between. This is definitely worth checking out if you're a fan of the genre.

As a Stephen King fan, I am hardly ever disappointed by his work. This graphic novel goes through each month of a year in the lives of the residents in the town. If you have seen silver bullet, take that out of your mind while reading this book. It was a good read, and it was quick. I needed to know what was going to happen next so I read it in one sitting. The illustrations are great and very detailed. I would recommed this book to any Stephen King fans.

Spoiler alert--don't read this unless you don't mind knowing what happens

When I thought about it, this reminds me of the movie "Jaws" in a way--the Beast terrorizes the town for quite a while before everyone is willing to face up to the reality that it exists and they need to kill it. The book begins in January, and it is September before the brother of a farmer whose hogs are slaughtered by the werewolf voices the opinion that it is a werewolf (not a deranged serial killer as everyone had been saying),that everyone knows that it is a werewolf, and that they have to stop "d..king around" and hunt the creature before it kills again. It is November before the hunt begins in earnest, as they chose to wait until the trees are bare and the tracking was easier. The hero of the book is a crippled child--it is he who wounds the werewolf initially and ultimately kills it with silver bullets provided by his uncle, the only adult who halfway believes him about what attacked him--but this is not a book suitable for children. Besides the various decapitations and people/animals who are disemboweled, the f-bomb is dropped a few times and it is implied (but not directly stated) that the Beast engages in bestiality with its second victim before it kills her. Worth reading, and reading again, like most of S. King's work. Try it, you will like it.
