On Sunday, October 31—a.k.a. Halloween—THE JEWISH BOOK OF HORROR, Denver Horror Collective’s third anthology offering you twenty-two dark tales about the culture, history, and folklore of the Jewish people, will be unleashed upon the world!
Due to popular demand, we’re doing an October 28 pre-release of the e-book through Godless, an independent distributor of horror fiction.
Then on Halloween we’ll have the official release of the print and e-book through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, multiple other online book purveyors (including Target for some reason!) and your local bookstore (find if it’s in stock through Indiebound.org, and if not, ask them to order it).
Denver Horror Collective is terrified to announce the table of contents for THE JEWISH BOOK OF HORROR (edited by Josh Schlossberg), due out Hanukkah 2021.

Horror is part of the human condition, but few peoples across the ages know horror quite like the Jews.
From slavery in Egypt, to the Holocaust, to the crippling neuroses brought on by overbearing mothers, the Chosen People have not only endured hell on Earth, they’ve transcended it to become some of the most influential—and feared—people on the planet.
THE JEWISH BOOK OF HORROR is an anthology of horror fiction focusing on the culture, history, and folklore of the Jewish people, to be published on the first night of Hanukkah, 2021.
Submissions must tie into the Jewish people or Judaism in some way, shape, or form. While we intend to publish a handful of stories about the Golem and dybbukim, Biblical times (10 Plagues!), and persecution across Europe, we also encourage authors to expand their horizons of what Jewish horror can be, and certainly not shy away from irreverence and/or humor.
Hunger that changes you…consumes you…turning you into a nightmare version of what you once were. From desolate snowy mountains and apocalyptic wastelands to New York’s sex clubs and virtual encounters, Denver Horror Collective brings you, dear reader, visions of horror inspired by the Wendigo.
On the heels of the success of its Denver Post best-selling, award-winning, and critically acclaimed Terror at 5280’, Denver Horror Collective has released another horror fiction anthology, available now!
CONSUMED: Tales Inspired by the Wendigo contains stories based on the Wendigo, a part-human monster or possessing spirit that instigates acts of murder, insatiable greed, and cannibalism, originating in the oral tradition of First Nations Algonquian tribes.
The brainchild of master editors Hollie & Henry Snider (formerly of Strigidae Publishing), CONSUMED: Tales Inspired by the Wendigo features Wrath James White (author of Succulent Prey, Everyone Dies Famous in a Small Town, and Population Zero), Steve Rasnic Tem (author of Ubo, Deadfall Hotel, and over 350 short stories), Dana Fredsti (author of The Spawn of Lilith, Blood Ink, and the Plague Town trilogy), Owl Goingback (author of Crota, Darker than Night, and Coyote Rage), and many more seasoned and emerging horror authors.
In an effort to help communities struggling the most with the COVID-19 pandemic, 20 percent of net profits will go towards Southern Ute Indian Tribe coronavirus relief.
