Publisher's Summary

"Instead of changing the planet to fit the man, we change the man to fit the planet..."

In the middle-distant future, Andrew Blake, discovered huddled inside a capsule orbiting a remote star, is brought back to Earth suffering from total amnesia. Over 200 years old, he thinks and acts like a man, but becomes frighteningly aware of two alien beings that lurk within his body - a strange biological computer, and a wolf-like creature. Dangerously possessed, Blake breaks out of the hospital to look for his past. What he discovers is a world that has no place for him, filled with telepathic brownies, talking houses, and a government that wants to get rid of him. Permanently. One of Simak's most provocative novels brings to life exciting ideas and themes just as philosopically and scientifically relevant today as the day he wrote it.

    "What does it mean to be human?"
    What made the experience of listening to The Werewolf Principle the most enjoyable?

    Enjoyable multi-voice production. Plus, Simak's vision of the future of bio-engineering was remarkable. Including the fact that there would be many people rabidly against tinkering with the basics of human. And the question: What does it mean to be human? is explored in meaningful ways.


    What other book might you compare The Werewolf Principle to and why?

    Theodore Sturgeon's "More Than Human."


    What does Geoff Williams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good vocal performance. Good choice of character actors. The subtle music and sound effects added to the enjoyment.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction. Just thoughtful musings about the various themes Simak explored.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen! I love good multi-voice productions. And this is one of the best.
