Waiting on Wednesday…Newcastle Werewolf Blood Red Ale (Month of the Werewolf Day Five)

From Werewolve-News.com, I am impatiently waiting on Newcastle Werewolf Blood Red Ale. (IMPATIENTLY, I tell you. I have set my people to work procuring it for me, by which I mean Tech Guru, who has a liquor store hookup, is tracking it down for me. If he can’t find it, I have another source to try.) I don’t even drink Newcastle much, but I want to try this.

Since I haven’t yet and therefore can’t review it here (which I will do when I find it), I provide for you a review from The Beers Gone Bad, which I had never seen before until I went looking for more information about this WEREWOLF BLOOD RED ALE. God, that name, people, DO WANT.

Much like the boys from Beers Gone Bad, when I look at this beer, I think of An American Werewolf in London, which is one of my favorite werewolf movies. The label and the name make me think of drinking in dark pubs with the full moon rising outside and the monsters within just waiting to be free. That or drinking around a bonfire while monsters how in the distance.

I will let you know if drinking it makes me want to howl at the moon. (Huh, this just made me want to write a very specific scene using this beer. I will let you know if it makes it into a story that is publicly available.)

Speaking of drinking, what are your favorite things to drink in the autumn? I love October and need something to drink around the bonfire.

Waiting on Wednesday…Apocalypses, Shapeshifters, and Vampires

From Circlet Press:

Apocalypse Sex: Love Like the End of the World

Description from the call for submissions:

What would you do if you had only 24 hours to live?

[…]

24 hours left to do everything you’ve wanted to: Would you make love to the person you’ve always secretly cared for? Have a rendezvous with a stranger on the street? Explore your wildest fantasies, or get back to the basics one last time?

(I wasn’t able to submit to this anthology like I’d planned, but oh, how much am I looking forward to this collection? Apocalypse stories for the win!)

Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance 2 edited by Trisha Telep.

I’m particularly looking forward to Moira Rogers’ story in this, which is about a lion shifter. (If you couldn’t tell from “Hunter, Prey,” I love lion shapeshifters.)

Everlasting Kiss by Amanda Ashley

Desire Never Dies

Daisy O’Donnell doesn’t get the attraction some women feel for vampires. She likes her men with a heartbeat. And she’s just met one who’s full of life: Erik Delacourt, the unreasonably sexy man she keeps meeting at a popular L.A. nightclub called the Crypt. She barely knows him, but there’s no resisting the connection she feels. . .

There’s one important detail Erik hasn’t gotten around to telling her yet. He’s a powerful vampire out to hunt the Blood Thief who is draining young vampires all over the city–and who has just raised the stakes by destroying one of Erik’s friends. To Erik, Daisy is a bright spot of innocence in a world of darkness and menace. He’ll do anything–even lie to her–to keep her safe and pure.
If only he knew that Daisy has something of her own to hide. . .

Waiting on Wednesday…Zombies, Werewolves, and Vampires, Oh My

From Living Dead Press:

DEAD HISTORY: A ZOMBIE ANTHOLOGY

The history of the walking dead is a long one.

Since before man walked the Earth, the dead have been with us. […]

From Egypt, to London, to the first moon landing, to the old West; zombies have been a part of our culture, our very lives, though each time it has been erased, eradicated from our history.

Perhaps in these lost tales of our past is the hope for our future. […]

From Mike Oliveri:

The Pack Book One: Winter Kill

(Except by waiting on, I mean it’s already available and I didn’t realize it until I went to find a link for this post. Huh.)

For generations, the northern Minnesota mountain region has been a haven for peaceful hikes and breath-taking scenery. But when tourists suddenly turn up dead, FBI special agents Angela Wallace and Brian Shilling are called in to investigate, only to discover that the murders may be part of a deadlier, supernatural mystery.

The Pack series of horror fiction and graphic novels tells the story of the Tylers, a close-knit family trying to deal with their supernatural legacy in an ever-changing world.

Winter Kill picks up two years after the events of Werewolves: Call of the Wild, a comic miniseries from Moonstone Books. A prose book, it was released for the Kindle on Halloween and in trade paperback in December.

From BBC:

Being Human: Chasers

George’s friend, Kaz, arrives at the flat with a staggering request: she and her partner Lucy want to have a child, and they’d like George to be the father. George is warming to the idea – he’s always wanted kids, and he can be as involved in the baby’s life as he wishes – but he is wary: what if his condition is genetic?

Mitchell and Annie don’t approve of the new plan, but Mitchell is wrestling with a difficult decision of his own. His new friend, Leo, is surprisingly good company for a pasty older bloke who believes the 1980s were a golden age. But he seems a little too interested in Mitchell’s family and history – and he has a surprising request of his own in store for his new friend…

Being Human: The Road

The first in a brand new list of tie-in novels for the hit BBC series Being Human.

Annie has learned quite a bit about her new friend Gemma: she’s 40 and used to work in a pharmacy, she likes to go bowling, and she’s never forgiven herself for the suicide of her teenage son. She also died ten years ago and doesn’t know why she’s come back through that door…

Perhaps it has something to do with the new road they’re building through the rundown part of town. The city’s plans are sparking protests, and Annie knows those derelict houses hold a secret in Gemma’s past. Will stopping the demolition help Gemma be at peace again? Annie wants George and Mitchell to join the road protest, but they’re more concerned by mysterious deaths at the hospital. Deaths that have also attracted the attention of the new Hospital Administrator…
