Overview

The complete collection of the Jewish tales of this master-of -science fiction, including two never-before published stories. Provides an extensive biography of the author, who died in 1993, and symposium of the leading science fiction authors who discuss the author's genius and talent.

This is the first time such science fiction/fantasy classics as The Golem and Nephillim have appeared together as part of a total anthology of the author's Jewish stories. Each story presents a message which can be appreciated by both Jew and non-Jew, because it reveals the mystical, kabbalistic and other-worldly side to Jewish lore. Science fiction legends like Peter Beagle, Carl Carr, and Jack Dann reveal their own stories of this brilliant writer.

About the Author
Avram Davidson (1923-1993) served in U.S. army in World War II and in the Israeli Army during Israel's War of Independence. These two experiences played heavily on his earlier works in Jewish Life and Commentary.

Avram was the editor of Fantasy & Science Fiction, and won numerous awards for his original writings including the Hugo Award for best science fiction story, the Elley Queen Award and Edgar Award for best mystery stories, and the Lifetime Achievement Award presented by the World Fantasy Convention.

Grania Davidson Davis is an accomplished writer in her own right. Her stories weave myth and legend into a wondrous tapestry that reflects her extensive travels to the orient. She was married to Avram Davidson, and collaborated with him on numerous short stories and novels.

Grania divides her time between her family, her cat "Laptop" in Marin County, California, and on the north shore of Oahu, Hawaii.

Jack Dann has written and edited over fifty books, including the groundbreaking Jewish anthologies WANDERING STARS and MORE WANDERING STARS. He has received the Nebula Award and the World Fantasy Award, as well as the Australian Aurealis Award.

Jack lives in Melbourne, Australia and "commutes" back and forth to Los Angeles and New York.
