A long time back, about 25 years or so ago, I read a couple of short stories which I have tried to track down to no avail. To make my request more difficult, the two stories were in two different books, each containing a compilation of stories by a number of different authors. I remember that both books were a little weathered at the time of reading and I was told that they may have been purchased in Europe (I live in the US).
Now to the stories. Note that my memory may not be completely accurate.
The first was a story about a person who boarded a bus and began eavesdropping on a conversation being had by two third parties. The conversation made up the bulk of the short story, and before it was finished, either the eavesdropper or the two eavesdroppees got off the bus, leaving the story with an unfinished cliffhanger for both the eavesdropper and the reader. A frustrating story that I have tried many times to google and have not been able to find. I do not remember what the conversation was about and I may be wrong about the bus, but it was some sort of public transportation (trolley, train, bus).
The second was a werewolf story and I have little faith that I can give you enough information to find the correct story. It was in a collection with other short horror stories. All I remember about the story was that the werewolf was a teenager (or pre-teen) and that in an effort to keep from killing people, his family created a type of jail cell to keep him in at night. I believe that they may also have either tied, shackled or handcuffed him. Frankly, this sounds like such a common theme in werewolf stories, that I doubt I’ll be able to find the one I was reading. Someone borrowed the book while I was in mid-story and I never saw it again. I don’t remember it being that great, but the fact that I never finished it has always bugged me.
