CAUGHT BETWEEN THE MOON AND NEW YORK CITY
Being a werewolf isn't all about howling at the moon.
Or running carelessly through boundless fields feeling the wind in your fur.
Not when you live in the most populous city in the US.
For Michael Andrews, a Canadian living in Manhattan and afflicted with lycanthropy, there are odd side effects to being a werewolf in the middle of a bustling metropolis.
Such as waking up naked in Battery Park with absolutely no memory of the night before as a wolf and trying to figure out why there is a bullet hole in his leg.
Just another day in the life of a man living with the odd side effect of his werewolf affliction.
(This 10,000 word short story is the original short story written by Mark Leslie that eventually inspired the full length Mark Leslie Novel: A Canadian Werewolf in New York)
