Book Description

“A must read for any fan of dark fiction. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.”
--SF Reader

It takes more than silver bullets to kill a werewolf.

Sylvester James knows what it is to be haunted. His mother died giving birth to him and his father never let him forget it; until the night he was butchered by a werewolf--the night a full moon ruined his life.

Alone in the world, Sylvester is taken in by Michael Winterfox, a Cheyenne mystic. Winterfox, once a werewolf hunter, trains the boy to be a warrior--teaching him how to block out pain, stalk, fight, and kill.

Bit by bit all that makes Sylvester human is sacrificed to the hunt. Now, Sylvester’s hatred has become a monster all its own, robbing him of conscience and conviction as surely as the Beast’s bite. As he follows his vendetta into the outlands of the occult, options become scarce. And he learns it takes more than silver bullets to kill a werewolf…

To kill a werewolf, it takes a hunter with a perfect willingness to die.

“A pleasure to read.”
--The Harrow

“Thick with plot, description and a fevered violence ... Easton uses his extensive knowledge of the occult and government agencies to bring a dizzying authenticity to this novel.”
--Rue Morgue


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Breathes new life into the werewolf myth...and Sylvester is one of the toughest SOBs to found in a work of fiction anywhere."--SFReader

"A well-crafted study of the human soul that probes the depths of Nietzche's abyss."--The Harrow --theharrow.com

"I gurantee you if you pick this book up you will not be able to put it down- yeah, it's that damn good!" - Horror Society --horrorsociety.com

"Thick with plot, description and a fevered violence, this novel offers up a slightly alternate reality that treads frighteningly close to our own." --Rue Morgue Magazine

From the Author

I'm a sucker for tragedy and anti-heroes. Even the most unscrupulous character can become the good guy when pitted against an evil greater than himself. My novels, 'When the Autumn Moon is Bright' and 'Heart of Scars' feature such a protagonist and deliver an autobiographical account of the awful price of hatred. It tells the life story of Sylvester James whose life is tragically altered by a marauding werewolf, and what happens when he hardens his heart to vengeance. As he becomes a man, he learns that it takes more than just silver bullets to kill a werewolf...it demands a perfect willingness to die. A third book is planned to complete the trilogy, and after that a prequel chronicling the life of Sylvester's mentor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting read! April 25, 2006
Format:Paperback
I was handed a copy of this book by a friend who insisted I read it.

I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. With all we've seen and read for eons about werewolves, this author has managed a completely new twist on the subject. He also brings a fresh writing style that draws you in and makes it hard to put down.

You really feel close to the protagonist, as he is basically an everyman trying to avenge his family and find the secret about werewolves while dealing with big egos that don't respect him until its too late.

If you like suspense/adventures/thrillers, or thought you've read or know everything about werewolves and werewolf hunters, you haven't unless you've read Autumn Moon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why did it have to end? February 2, 2007
Format:Paperback
I must admit that when I was told that I needed to read this book, I was more than hesitant. I am a huge fan of the horror genre, but it seems that lately the air around it has gone stale with mediocrity. I have gone back and reread several of the classics, but had not picked up a piece of new fiction in a long time when this book came my way. With this work, hopefully his first of many, Mr. Easton has breathed new life into this decaying genre. His genius, like any great storyteller, lies in his ability to combine the products of his imagination with real places and events. The protagonist is a tragic and seemingly hopeless soul whose guilt and anguish not only fuel him but are ultimately used as weapons against him. Sylvester's greatest struggle is internal, to not become that thing that he most despises in order to defeat it. This is a main theme which runs throughout our human history as well as our greatest works of fiction. The protagonist's willingness to do whatever it takes to battle "The Beast" turns him into one. We witness his rises and falls on one very entertaining yet disturbing roller coaster ride of his various relationships and hunts. Emotional and riveting. Hopefully Mr. Easton will continue to provide us with excellent reading material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boulevard of Broken Dreams, November 27, 2005
Format:Paperback
I am an avid reader of many genres, and this is the best book about werewolves that I have ever had the pleasure of reading. This novel draws you in immediately with its crisp dialogue, dramatic twists and turns, and its realistic take on these supposedly mythological creatures. It makes you believe evil manifests itself in many forms, and werewolves could plausibly be one of these forms. The characters are well crafted and multidimensional, and you find yourself truly caring about what happens to them. The protagonist seems hard as nails, but he's definitely walked the boulevard of broken dreams and had more than his fair share of heart and soul ache. Will Logan ever find peace and solace instead of rage and grief? Can he ever forgive himself for the things he's had to do to survive? I can't wait for the sequel to find out what happens next.

2.0 out of 5 stars High Expectations Weren't Met October 13, 2011
By R
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this with high expectations based on all the great reviews. Personally, I found this book to be too boring to finish. It started off promising, but went on and on with little werewolf encounters. I was hoping for more werewolves, not insight into the Vietnam war and life in prison. Maybe if this were my first werewolf book, I would have been more impressed. I forced myself to get as far as half way, but stopped. I did skip to the end just to see how it all turned out. I hate to be one of the few people that doesn't like this, but it's my personal opinion. Very disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Writing From Easton November 8, 2011
Format:Paperback
The blurbs and book description did not do this novel justice. This story by Brian P. Easton was one of the best pieces of fiction, in any genre, that I have ever read. Easton has an incredible writing style that shows remarkable attention to detail, as well as an exceptional portrayal of the werewolf theme. While I did not consider this a work of horror as much as a thriller, it still triggered night terrors for three nights in a row...not something that happens very often. Even my husband said that I was constantly yelling about "werewolves" during the night -- which is slightly surprising, considering that werewolves are not necessarily the core of this novel (and I have never had a fear of werewolves).

At first, I wasn't sure if this was about a man who hunted werewolves, or a werewolf that hunted, but after a few chapters, I was convinced that the real struggle was not between a man and monsters, but a man and his emotional turmoil, specifically dealing with hatred and grief that has been built up over his lifetime. Sylvester James, who was born in 1950 and changes his name several times throughout the book to suit his purposes, finds himself on a path with the Beast after his father is rendered to pieces in front of him in the Canadian Rockies when he is only 13. A family friend, Michael Winterfox, uses Cheyenne traditions to prepare Sylvester for his chosen lifelong vendetta.

Sylvester's purpose in life was to avenge his father's death, but there were many years between each werewolf encounter, and the events in those years were just as gripping as his actual battles with various werewolves. From a tour in Vietnam to stint as a convict to a government agent, Sylvester's life is a constant gauntlet of pain, both emotionally and physically.

More About the Author

The son of a Southern Illinois pastor, Brian Easton grew up a fan of classic horror films during the 70's. His favorite was The Wolfman.

"When I was a baby, my mother used to rock me while watching Dark Shadows. I cut my teeth on a steady diet of Creature Feature and Night Gallery, the old school Universal Monsters and spaghetti westerns. I started writing when I was ten, after I was given a hand-me-down Royal typewriter."

He has studied the occult since 1985 and obtained a degree in anthropology to further his research. His first novel Autobiography of a Werewolf Hunter (aka When the Autumn Moon is Bright) and his second novel Heart of Scars were finalists in the 2003 & 2008 Independent Publisher Book Awards.

"I'm a sucker for tragedy and anti-heroes. Even the most unscrupulous character can become the good guy when pitted against an evil greater than himself. My novels, 'Autobiography of a Werewolf Hunter' and 'Heart of Scars' feature such a protagonist and deliver an autobiographical account of the awful price of hatred.
