In HebrewPunk, World Fantasy Award-winning author Lavie Tidhar builds stories that are infused with centuries of tradition and painted with Hebrew mythology. We meet the Tzaddik as he faces off against a vengeful angel intent on sending the Fallen to hell. The shape shifting Rat fights lycanthropic Nazis. The Rabbi takes us on a thoughtful and amusing journey into the possibilities of a Jewish state in the heart of Africa. Finally, all three protagonists appear in an old-fashioned caper story that will leave you breathless.

Includes introduction and story notes by the author.

Blurbs:
"How well I recall, as a lad aged some ten years, circa 1937, reading Lavie Tidhar's stirring adventures in such pulps as Thrilling Hebrew Tales and Yiddish Excitement Quarterly. Even then, these tales possessed a fascinating air of archaic menace and occult power. Now, some seventy years after their original publication, they positively radiate the uncanny sensibilities of a bygone era. What a cast of characters-the Rabbi, the Rat and the Tzaddik, as memorable as Doc Savage and his crew! And what a set of venues-the London underworld, the African jungles, and more! Plus robust menaces galore! Lavie Tidhar surpassed those who went before him, such as H. Rider Haggard, and inspired those who came after, viz, Avram Davidson and Alan Moore. Having these rousing romps gathered at last into the volume HebrewPunk marks a milestone in the literature of the fantastic."
-Paul Di Filippo, author of The Emperor of Gondwanaland and Other Stories

"Lavie Tidhar has staked out (no pun intended) his own territory by imagining a Judaic mystical alternative history into which he injects vampires, zombies, werewolves, Tzaddiks, golems, and Rabbis. These four stories are wondrous, adventurous, and thought-provoking."
-Ellen Datlow, co-editor of The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror

"Here we have stories of Tzaddik, The Rat, the Rabbi... Lavie is mining ancient traditions and recent history to write stories of modern despair and a weird sort of redemptive compassion, messing with our expectations and always, always, leading with our humanity, even when those heroes are, by some standards, monsters."
-Laura Anne Gilman, author of Burning Bridges

"Lavie Tidhar has a unique and fascinating voice, as well as a good sense of history- both History Surreal and History Literary, as well as the more mundane kind. Imagine Hard-Boiled Kabbalah, a Godfather Rabbi whose gang includes vampires, werewolves and (naturally) golems. If you like your otherworld fun noir, have I got a book for you!"
-Kage Baker, author of In the Garden of Iden

"I did read the book, and the good thing is that I loved it-kick-ass kosher adventures. 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. Zombies, golems, werewolves, Rabbis, Kabbala, it's all here, and all saturated with a sense of exotic roundedness, an eerie solidity and reality. Not to be missed."
-Adam Roberts, author of Gradisyl

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
