The Mort Report: Curse of the Werepoodle by Paul Lubaczewski.

The Mort Report is back with another fun read!




by Paul Lubaczewski

For those of you who wonder how to pronounce the surname of this author, sound it out:


Lou-baa-chess-key. But you pronounce it Jones. How should I know??

Honestly, this is not an author I have read before. But I found the title intriguing.

And this is a more traditional horror than the extreme stuff I usually read. I might even go as far as saying that it could be classified as YA, because the main focus of the story was not about blood and guts but telling an adventurous and funny horror story. However, this was original—which is not easy to do with werewolf stories—so it might be worth checking out if you are in the mood for something lighter.

Our main character gets bitten and, when the moon is full, turns into a weredog. He meets up with other weredogs, but he soon discovers that there are bigger, badder ones out there who are out to destroy them for not living up to the image.

Until, that is, something bigger and badder than even the worst of them comes along.

And then it is carnage—which will take you halfway around the world, no less.

My only complaint about this story was that it took a long time to develop—I think it was halfway before you really start to feel the horror element coming through. But when it picks up, you enjoy every moment of it.

I want to recommend this to people just getting into horror, looking for something with less violence and more adventure, or those who enjoy humor. I still think that the main market should be YA, because this might hook a few of them, and it is not condescending.

Overall, I enjoyed it and I am giving it 4 stars.
