THE JEWISH BOOK OF HORROR
Edited by Josh Schlossberg
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.

In this companion volume to Hazardous Imaginings: The Mondo Book of Politically Incorrect Science Fiction, fourteen stories by Ian Creasey, Andrew Fox, David Wesley Hill, Liam Hogan, Claude Lalumière, and other writers from around the world push the boundaries of what is considered taboo in science fiction. From a society where telling an insult joke is a capital crime to one where letting your faucet drip may cost you your head, from a utopia where inequality and want have been abolished to a hostile planet whose isolated colonists must deal with the aftermath of a sexual assault among their own, these stories pull no punches.
