On the first night of Hanukkah, November 28 at 5 pm PT / 6 MT / 7 CT / 8 ET Denver Horror Collective hosts “Jewish Horror 101,” an hour-long virtual Zoom event celebrating the publication of the award-winning small press’ third horror fiction anthology, THE JEWISH BOOK OF HORROR, available online and at bookstores across the U.S.
RESERVE YOUR FREE SPOT through Eventbrite.
Whether it’s pirate rabbis or demon-slaying Bible queens, concentration camp vampires or beloved, fearless bubbies, THE JEWISH BOOK OF HORROR offers you twenty-two dark tales about the culture, history, and folklore of the Jewish people, selected by award-winning editor and horror author Josh Schlossberg, with a foreword by Rabbi John Carrier and introduction by Molly Adams of the Jewish Horror Review.
“Jewish Horror 101” will feature five anthology authors revealing secrets about famous and lesser-known creatures from Jewish folklore and mythology appearing in their stories, including the golem (Simon Rosenberg), Lilith (Molly Adams), the dybbuk (John Baltisberger), mazzikim (Emily Ruth Verona), the alukah (Michael Picco), and the Watchers.
Afterwards, over a dozen authors from THE JEWISH BOOK OF HORROR will share the inspiration behind their original stories, and then editor Josh Schlossberg will close the evening with a menorah lighting to honor the first night of Hanukkah.
Publishers Weekly calls THE JEWISH BOOK OF HORROR “a superior anthology…[that] ably demonstrates the compatibility of Jewish tradition, history, and folklore with the horror genre.”
