Werewolves 101

Gévaudanais defends herself from the Beast of Gévaudan
Want to know how to become a werewolf?  Need to identify a specific type of lycanthrope or single out a famous case?  Begin your search at Monstrous.com, where you'll find art, stories, myths, and collected information about every aspect of the werewolf.

Professor D. L. Ashliman of the University of Pittsburgh has translated numerous folktales, among which you will find werewolf legends from Germany.  I especially like that Professor Ashlimann provides citations for the sources from which he has gathered his stories.

Werewolfpage.com, a site with an extensive werewolf collection, includes a great list of werewolf movies sorted by date ranges.  Synopsis and even some trailers are included for the films. (I'll be adding a few of these to my Netflix list.) 

The site Dans l'Ombre de la Bete (translation: In the Shadow of the Beast) contains primary sources and plenty of information related to the Beast of Gévaudan and the attacks attributed to large wolf-like creatures in Gévaudan during 1764-1765. The site is in French, but you can view scans of original documents.  And, using Google translate, you can read most of the site's text.  There's quite a bit there, and I've only begun skimming it myself--let me know what you find especially interesting.
