This is the review for “I Was a Teenage Werewolf” by Dale Bailey, published in Nightmare Magazine’s December 2016 Issue. Summary: When the first victim of a teenage werewolf appears at the school gym of Rockdale High, the rumors amongst the teenagers spread like wildfire. What also spread are the parents’ fear and some sort of morbid excitement on student’s behalf. The prom night is approaching at Rockdale High and it’s time for the masks to fall.   Pros: + The buildup or atmosphere and mystery right until the ending. + The social and existential commentary. +The use of character’s from the classic movie. Cons: –  It was in some ways a predictable ending. -The characters didn’t feel as real as I would like them too. (Maybe they were never real anyway.)   You can read the story here
