Samuel Guy Endore (4 July 1900 - 12 February 1970), also known as Harry Relis, was a novelist and screenwriter. He wrote many novels and screenplays for action films and thrillers. He is best known for his novel The Werewolf of Paris which occupies a significant position in werewolf literature, in much the same way as Dracula does for vampires.

He was nominated for a screenwriting Oscar for The Story of G.I. Joe (1945). Endore's novel Methinks the Lady . . . (1946) was the basis for Ben Hecht's screenplay for Whirlpool (1949).

Endore was a committed leftist and was investigated by the House Un-American Activities Committee during its search for Communist infiltration of the film industry. Some studios thus blacklisted him and he had to sell his screenplays under the pseudonym Harry Relis (Relis was actually the husband of Endore's wife's eldest sister). He remained defiant, however, claiming that he was a failure as a human being if he was not subversive to everything HUAC stood for.

The1700's were a period in western history when two philosophers duelled for the mental framework of the intelligentsia. Voltaire, the coola nd keptical rational man, and the vastly more emotional Rousseau. Closer studies by moderns has demonstrated that neither man was purely what their partisans advocated them to be, yet a very amusing fiction is the product of Mr. Endore's efforts.

Dvojbiografia sledujúca paralelne životné osudy dvoch filozofov, ktorými sú Voltaire a Rousseau. Títo velikáni mali mnoho protinázorov, ktoré vyústili do otvoreného nepriateľstva medzi mocným a vplyvným Voltairom a chudobným a polovzdelaným Rousseauom...

Episodic novel frequently diverges unto tangential tales of poor souls who fall victim to the aftermath of the sad and sordid tale of Bertrand. Doomed from the start, having been fathered by a priest and born on Christmas Day with joined eyebrows, Betrand makes for quite a tragic character in Guy Endore often rambling narrative. Its a bit of a slow burn before some genuine werewolf action commences, but Endore throws in some creepy touches into Bertrand's early life; being thirsty for the taste of blood as a young child stands out in particular. The author teases the reader with Aymar's growing hysteria over his 'nephew''s night time antics, listening to the sound of claws at his door. Endore briefly entertains the idea that somehow Bertrand himself is perhaps responsible for all of the grim war fever that is upsetting Europe, which is interestingly a similar idea hinted in relation to Dracula in the novel Dracula: Asylum. The Parisian segment with the General and his daughter is one of the best of the side vignettes that showcase the side effects of Bertrand's rampages as a werewolf. The sidebar on public hysteria regarding the supposed immoral and cruel secret lives of priests, monks, and nuns in Paris is interesting in itself but offers nothing to advance the plot. The novel's flow was too overly complicated for me to say that I enjoyed it. I appreciated the basic elements of the story, the methods of survival employed by Bertand over the course of his life, and some of the author's stylistic form. I'm glad I read the book, simply to say that I have read it, but honestly I found this novel a chore to get through.… (mais)
