2014 Werewolf Horror Calendar -
This 2014 wall calendar features original gory, horrific werewolf art by 12 awesome artists.
Any werewolf fans out there? This project could use support!
28 - and have been doing so since 14! That’s half my life, weird to think.
36 and didn’t even really start roleplaying until college, so 19.
32, and I’ve been on that creative train since 19.
29. Also started when I was about 14.
The alpha wolf is a figure that looms large in our imagination. The notion of a supreme pack leader who fought his way to dominance and reigns superior to the other wolves in his pack informs both our fiction and is how many people understand wolf behavior. But the alpha wolf doesn’t exist—at least not in the wild.
Everyone who writes werewolf fiction needs to read this.
I try to tell people this shit all the time when they spew their “you have to teach you’re dog that you’re the alpha” crap. That’s all it is, crap, and all you’re doing it hurting your relationship with you dog. You dog doesn’t love you, he’s scared of you.
Anyway, I urge everyone to read this.
And this is pretty much the reason why “Alpha” and “Beta” and all those other words denoting rank have pretty much been purged from my werewolf novel. Sure there are more “dominant” and “subordinate” werewolves but considering the complexity of my characters, I felt that words like “Alpha”, “Beta”, “Gamma”, etc, oversimplified relationships. Especially since a good portion of my novels take place before the terms were coined and in popular use in reference to canids.
