From the press release:

For the first time ever MIAMI FOX PUBLISHING presents the complete account of one of the most popular and iconic legendary film franchises in cinema history. When The Howling premiered in 1981 the film introduced cinema-goers to an all-new kind of movie monster – shocking, visceral, graphic and relentless. Spawning seven popular sequels to date, the series has become the most prosperous werewolf franchise of all time.

Bryn Curt James Hammond’s (A Case for Murder: Brittany Murphy Files) The Complete History of The Howling is the first book to chronicle the making of all eight feature films and take an in-depth look at the film’s source material by Gary Brandner, which began life in 1977 as a trilogy of books. It contains interviews with many of the surviving members of each production.

The Complete History of The Howling is richly illustrated and presents stunning pictorials recalling a quarter-century’s worth of behind-the-scenes stories – the struggles, feuds, foibles, controversies and calamities. Fully illustrated with never-before-seen photos, an all-new, unofficial story arc by Nick Stead (Hybrid), along with tracing the complex history of the wolf men from their earliest origins, this is the ultimate oral and visual memoir of the most successful werewolf horror franchise in the history of motion pictures.

The Complete History of The Howling launches at Horror Con (UK) May 12th and will tour exclusively with the convention until November, November 16th The Complete History of The Howling will be available worldwide in all good bookshops.
