Reviews of THE JEWISH BOOK OF HORROR

A list of some of the reviews of THE JEWISH BOOK OF HORROR!

Publishers Weekly:

“A superior anthology with a fascinating origin story…[that] demonstrates the compatibility of Jewish tradition, history, and folklore with the horror genre.”

Bookishly Jewish:

“Marginalized writers are taking back the genre, using it to confront some of their own demons and show the world the horrors they personally experience. Instead of making me feel nauseous and sick, these stories inform and empower.”

Midwest Book Review:

“Each tale comes steeped in a background of Jewish lives and traditions. Each holds a powerful key to understanding the varied sources of horror in adversities that challenge heart, soul, and spiritual wellsprings alike.”

Horror Addicts:

“A dark, informative and entertaining read…it carries the weight of one of the oldest traditions in the world.”

HorrorNews.Net:

“The Jewish Book of Horror beckons a vast audience to enlighten, entertain and terrify…This collection of dark, ancient and contemporary mayhem can be equally enjoyed with an initial perusal and returning to the promised land time and again.”

Unsettling Reads:

“There were so many real life horrors mentioned in many of the stories in the collection, which added another layer of emotion for me… There were moments when I knew I was reading a fictional horror collection, but it was hard to differentiate the fine line between the truth of the past and the creative fiction of the authors.”

One-Sentence Reviews:

“The best anthology I’ve read all year!”

The Horror Tree:

“An anthology well worth reading.”

The Jewish Book of Horror presents both sample stories and introductory discussions of the tradition.
