Literature: The Werewolf Asylum
novelette from Gareth Barsby of The Otherworld Anthology
and Daryl And Susie
. Set in Victorian London
, this story revolves around the titular asylum, where two men, an unnamed narrator
and his assistant Dr Harlston, work to help lycanthropes suppress their nocturnal transformations, while also searching for a more permanent cure. One evening, they find a special type of werewolf - one permanently stuck in a wolf/human hybrid form - and take her back to the asylum to study and treat her. 'Martha', however, believes her form is due to her being a Messiah to her brethren, and wishes for the other werewolves to embrace their condition, which could be a hindrance to the two doctors' goals.
