Dear readers, here is quick review of recent things our editors have found on wolves, as we continue to research into wolf lore and collect submissions for our fall issue on wolf folklore and werewolf lore. Please also visit our rolling discussion on the message board on this topic, which now includes quite a few thoughts on wolves and werewolves in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-Earth. Chime in with your own "wolf sightings" and thoughts on the attraction and fascination that our culture(s) has with the wolf.
Meanwhile, here are a few items:
1. Endicott Studio of Mythic Arts just posted links on their blog to all of the (quite good) poems on Little Red Riding Hood that have collected over the years in their online Coffee House. Take a look!
2. If you haven't seen it yet, you must check out Wolf Song of Alaska, a massive and beautiful online resource on wolf fact and folklore. The site also features some wonderful photographs of the arctic wolf.
3. A YouTube video featuring an Arctic encounter between a man in a truck and a wolf on the road (no, not a collision). There is always something enchanting to us about such encounters between the "human" and the "wild" (perhaps because such encounters suggest simultaneously distance between those two and that perhaps the distance is an illusion):
Drop by the message board and share your own encounters with wolves or with wolf stories...
