Canadian Werewolf Fans

Zombie lit fans have probably heard of David Wellington, the UN archivist who published his zombie trilogy online: Monster Island, Monster Nation and Monster Planet. With Wellington’s other serialized online novel, Thirteen Bullets, about to be published in print next year, what is the Pittsburgh* native up to these days?

Why, a werewolf novel set in the Northwest Territories!

But that’s not it for the Canadian connection, dear readers. The author invites Canadians to have a say about their portrayal:

If you are Canadian, I’d like you to keep a close eye on me. I know I’ll probably mis-spell “colour” and “centre” more often than not, but that’s easy to fix. What I really want to know is whether my Canadian characters sound and act authentic. Conversely, I’d also like to know if they come on too strong, if they’re washing down their Timbits with too many Labatt Blues while cheering on a hockey match, muttering, “give’r, ya hoser, eh?” too often. I want these characters to be believable human beings, not caricatures.

And please, if there’s anything offensive to Canadians in the book, please let me know that too.

Read Frostbite, then email David at and be a part of Canuck Lycanthropy literary history!

*Ahem, Romero fans.
