The Were Wolf. By Clemence Housman. (John Lane.)—The Were Wolf

is reprinted from Atalanta, and is a picturesque and striking attempt to give reality and colour to the gruesome tradi- tion of the "were wolf." The contrasted characters of the two brothers, the suspicions of Christian, and the pursuit of the wolf and the tragic conclusion, are worked up into a weird narrative, and one that will furnish half-an-hour's good reading. There are six illustrations by Laurence Housman.
