In HebrewPunk, World Fantasy Award winning author Lavie Tidhar had reinvented pulp fantasy fiction in Jewish terms, creating a hidden world where fantasy, horror and history intertwine.
Featuring the Rabbi, the Rat and the Tzaddik, their stories take us on a journey from an expedition to an alternate world in Kenya in 1904 to the drug-soaked streets of 1920s London and to Transylvania in the Second World War.
Here are just a few of the great reviews the collection has received…
‘Imagine Hard-Boiled Kabbalah… If you like your otherworld fun noir, have I got a book for you!’ – Kage Baker, author of In the Garden of Iden
‘Wondrous, adventurous, and thought-provoking.’ – Ellen Datlow, co-editor of The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror
‘Tidhar writes a sort of intensified supernatural action-surrealism that fair rattles along and is full of surprises—not only plot twists and thrills but a level of conceptual surprise, a reinvigoration of some of the more tired conventions of the fantasy-horror genre… not to be missed.’ – Adam Roberts, author of The Thing Itself
Lavie is the author of a great number of critically acclaimed, award-winning and award-nominated novels, novellas, and short stories. His latest novels are MAROR (Head of Zeus) and NEOM (Tachyon Publications) — both out now.
