9780060109448: Wandering Stars: An Anthology of Jewish Fantasy and Science Fiction

Jewish Science Fiction and Fantasy? Yes!

Wandering Stars is the landmark collection of Jewish science fiction and fantasy. The first of its kind, it is an established and enduring classic.

This is the first time in a science fiction collection that the Jewish People―and the richness of their themes and particular points of view―appear without a mask. Wandering Stars is a showpiece of Jewish wit, culture, and lore, of the blend of humor and sadness, cynicism, and faith. In these pages you’ll find superlative tales of fantasy and science fiction by masters.
