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.”

Horror Addicts Reviews THE JEWISH BOOK OF HORROR

“The Jewish Book of Horror, ed. Josh Schlossberg (pub. Denver Horror Collective) is a dark, informative and entertaining read. I was drawn to this book because I was wondering how can a people, who have endured so much during the history of the human race, create fictional horror and I also wanted to know what was different about ‘Jewish’ horror compared to standard offerings.”

CHOPPING SPREE by Angela Sylvaine:

Eden Hills, Minnesota is famous for one thing—its ’80s inspired Fashion Mall. When high school junior, Penny, lands a job at one of its trendy stores, she notices her teen coworkers all wear a strange symbol they won’t explain.

Suspicious but wanting to belong, she agrees to stay after closing for a party in the closed store. Her fun turns to terror when Penny discovers a mortally wounded boy and learns there is a killer loose in the mall. Soon the teens are running for their lives.

Will Penny discover the truth behind the mall cabal and survive to slay another day, or will she fall victim to the galleria of gore?”

Cover Reveal: THE JEWISH BOOK OF HORROR

Horror is part of the human condition, but few peoples across the ages know it quite like the Jews.

From slavery to pogroms to the Holocaust to antisemitism, the “Chosen People” have not only endured hell on Earth, they’ve risen above it to share their stories with the world.

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.
