Aimed straight, and straightforwardly, at the jugular of any very susceptible reader, these are three fanged stories of horror just this side of the supernatural. In ""The Cell"" he has constructed for the night during the lunar month when ""the change"" comes, a man becomes a killer wolf; a headless body, ripped and clawed to death on Dartmoor, leads to further fatalities in ""The Hunter,"" and in the last one an anthropologist goes to South America to track a ""bestia hombre"" and is the ultimate victim. . . . Dark shades of Arkham House, modern variants of an old time, time honored tradition.
