For JHR’s (and Molly’s) first podcast appearance, we joined Denver Horror Collective’s Josh Schlossberg, the award-winning editor of The Jewish Book of Horror and writer (Malinae), on JOSH’S WORST NIGHTMARE, a podcast exploring the dark landscape of biological horror fiction. In this episode, we discuss all things cannibalism, from Hannibal Lecter to Cannibal Holocaust, and specifically where Jewish horror and cannibalism intersect.

Proud to announce the release of THE JEWISH BOOK OF HORROR from Denver Horror Collective, a truly fantastic anthology featuring twenty-two new, original stories of Jewish horror.
This is a project that I’ve been involved with for a while now, and I’m so grateful to the wonderful folks at DHC (in particular, editor Josh Schlossberg, one of the sweetest guys in horror) for letting me write an introduction to these fabulous stories, giving readers a brief primer on the basics of Jewish horror and discussing where this under-appreciated sub-genre might lead us.
You can pick up The Jewish Book of Horror pretty much anywhere good books are sold, including at Amazon (global) and Waterstones (UK).
If the book alone simply isn’t enough for you, a bunch of us got together via Zoom on the first night of Hanukkah this year to do a bit of community education, in the form of JEWISH HORROR 101.
The lovely folks at DHC were kind enough to immortalise the evening on YouTube, so if you’d like to hear myself and several other contributors to the book talking about dybbuks, Lilith, golems, and all other kinds of weird and wonderful inventions, check out the video below!
(psst – if you want to skip to my bit on Lilith, it starts at the timestamp 28:08)
