Fernand Wagner's deal with the devil buys wealth and youth -- at the price of monthly transformations into a ravening beast. The first important fictional treatment of the werewolf theme in English literature, this Victorian thriller traces Wagner's blood-soaked trail through sixteenth-century Italy. Packed with horrors and thrills, it offers a gothic feast of murders and supernatural events, punctuated by hidden plots and secret passages, Turkish invasions and intrigues, and other diabolical doings. Although largely forgotten today, author George W. Reynolds ranked among mid-Victorian England's most celebrated authors and was a prominent political figure and pioneer for social justice. This edition of Wagner, the Wehr-Wolf includes the first extensive modern survey of Reynolds' work as well as twenty-four atmospheric illustrations.
