More bones : scary stories from around the world by Arielle North Olson( Book )
4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 2,693 libraries worldwide
Can you escape from an evil wizard? Can you outrun a corpse? Can you learn secrets from a severed head? These terrifying questions, and many more, enliven twenty-two tales collected from around the world and retold. From China to Egypt, and Spain to Hawaii, people have gathered for generations to listen to spooky stories that make the backs of their necks prickle. You can share their nightmares of monstrous sea ghosts with sharp green teeth, women with blood-red hair that turns into snakes, skulls that defy death, and treasure chambers that can trap you inside forever. In huts and palaces, by campfires and hearths, people huddle close together to hear these tales. But if you read them alone, beware!
Reimagining the Bible the storytelling of the rabbis by Howard Schwartz( file )
9 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 1,743 libraries worldwide
This is a collection of essays drawn from Schwartz's previously published work in which he explores how each successive phase of Jewish literature has drawn upon and reimagined the previous ones. Arguing that there is a continuity in Jewish literature which extends from the biblical era to our own times, this collection serves as a guide to the history of that literature and its genres. The book is intended for students and scholars of Jewish studies
Tree of souls the mythology of Judaism by Howard Schwartz( file )
22 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 1,659 libraries worldwide
"Only one of the world's mythologies has remained essentially unexplored - the mythology of Judaism. As Howard Schwartz reveals in Tree of Souls, the first anthology of Jewish mythology in English, this mythical tradition is as rich and as fascinating as any in the world." "Drawing from the Bible, the Pseudepigrapha, the Talmud and Midrash, the kabbalistic literature, medieval folklore, Hasidic texts, and oral lore collected in the modern era, Schwartz has gathered together nearly 700 of the key Jewish myths." "Schwartz, a renowned collector and teller of traditional Jewish tales, now illuminates the previously unexplored territory of Jewish mythology. This pioneering anthology is essential for anyone interested in the Hebrew Bible, Jewish faith and culture, and world mythology."--Jacket
