Who does not know that there is a novel called “Dracula” written by Bram Stoker? Surely most know it and have even read it. Who knows the novel “The werewolf of Paris” written by Guy Endore? It may be that in this case not many people recognize it. To get an idea, this novel can be considered as the “Dracula” for the subject of werewolves.
In this novel you can see what would be the modern lycanthrope as we know him today. The character in the novel remembers his transformations into a werewolf as unreal dreams. This condition is also spoken of as a curse to the sufferer. Guy Endore also remembered again that werewolves must kill themselves with silver, which would last in later cinema films.
