Did you know that the Legendary writer of Sherlock Holmes , Arthur Conan Doyle wrote and published a werewolf short story called A Pastoral Horror in 1890?
I surely didn’t . It’s wild don’t you think?
In this short story, Arthur Conan Doyle doesn’t stray far from his detective plot devices that he uses in Sherlock Holmes . Yes this werewolf short story is quite a mystery about an Englishman who lives in a peaceful village in Bavaria but soon it becomes disturbed when the peasants of the town get mysteriously attacked by an unknown assailant in the woods . With help from others the Englishman goes about to solve the mystery of the town.
This short story is more crime than horror and is more like a non-supernatural werewolf story where the perpetrator doesn’t physically turn into a werewolf . He just exhibits wolf like symptoms and is driven to madness .
So if you are a fan of Sherlock Holmes this would be the perfect story for you to read . Also for the readers who enjoy werewolf stories.
