NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)
Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!

The Company of Wolves
I've been seeing quite a few reviews lately for Angela Carter's book of short stories, The Bloody Chamber, which got me thinking about a movie I used to love watching.
In that book is a short story called "The Company of Wolves", which Neil Jordan made into a movie in the mid-eighties. My roommate and I used to watch parts of it over and over again. Here is an extended clip from our favorite part of the movie. I'm guessing you can figure out why our copy of the video was always cued up to the beginning of this section. (Warning - It's pretty creepy. You might not want your kids to watch it until you check it out first.)
I didn't check it out completely, but it looks like you can see the entire film in parts on You Tube. But I need to go read the story again. After I watch this cute guy turn into a wolf one more time in Part 9. :-)
