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.

How often have you heard that phrase used? It’s one of the worst things to say to one of our fellow human beings with connotations of fearful, miserable and prolonged pain, either physical or psychological.
Hell, that concept of a place of eternal damnation, where pitchfork wielding devils plague our very posteriors with the flames of cleansing fire, is that real? Many of the ancient cultures on Earth seemed to think so. The Egyptians, the Greeks, the Vikings, but also the Chinese, each had their own variety of an afterlife, filled with agony and demonic creatures to dispense a kind of divine retribution for the sins we committed during our lives.
But there is another side to Hell. There is redemption. There is the chance, no matter how small, that our souls are saved through the cleansing fires and torments of that place. But it’s not the redemption itself that inspires us. It’s hope, the thought that somehow, somewhere, a benevolent God watches over us and shows us the mercy and forgiveness that we cannot give ourselves.
So what if you achieve redemption? Is it an automatic ticket into heaven? Or do you enter the next level of torment, to be judged once again, in a never ending journey?
Established and new authors attempt to answer some of these questions in this excellent anthology. And for now I’ll skip my further contemplations and bid you:
Welcome to Hell!
And monsters into men.
What would you do for love?
Self-sacrifice, of course...
But what about literal sacrifice?
Would you kill for the right person?
Would you kill again…and again…and again?
What if you could come back from the dead to protect your loved ones?
Or never die in the first place?
Would you cross the ocean? The world?
What about the universe? Or reality itself?
Would you enlist a demon to avenge your brother?
Or seduce a serial killer to save your sister?
Would you live an eternity of lifetimes with your soulmate?
Even if he was a monster?
A family of necromancers determined to preserve their way of life at all costs…
A tragic spirit whose rage burns across centuries…
Parents who go to reality-defying lengths to save their children…
Legendary monsters resurrected to avenge the forgotten…
Guardians of the ancient world who kill to protect their wards…
Jealous lovers who let nothing stand in their way…
Come and meet these monsters, and the things they do for love.
Comprising Volumes 4 to 6 of the bestselling "MONSTERS" horror anthology series, the WHAT MONSTERS DO FOR LOVE trilogy spans over one hundred stories by an international team of bestselling, award-winning, and visionary authors, offering a treasure trove unforgettable tales about monsters (of both the human and inhuman varieties) that range from the deceptively whimsical to the heartbreakingly terrifying, and everything in between.
Now lock your doors, turn on your lights, and grab your cat for comfort’s sake. It’s time to learn why love is the scariest thing on earth.

Zombie #2 - Mixed Drink
Theater B is a collection of short stories written in the same vein as the classic B movies that we fell in love with for their utter lack of shame. They are orgasms of creativity, sluicing imagination from every orifice. They are monuments to the raw idea, bereft of filter, spawned to electrify, to terrify, and to nauseate.
We’re Revisiting the Undead to resurrect those tales and bring them back so you can sit with them for a while, and remember them from their heyday, when they shone like the brightest sun. They still shine, but in moonlight now: softer, colder.
The undead have returned. Invite them in.
