'Wandering Stars. An anthology of Jewish Fantasy and Science Fiction' (fiction)

Jack Dann (ed.). Harper and Row Publishers, New York, 1974.

Thirteen short stories connected to the theme of science-fiction and astronomy, all written from a viewpoint that takes into account Jewish culture, tradition and ingenuity. Some, such as "The Golem" or "Goslin Day", re-examine with a touch of fantasy well-known traditional Jewish superstitions, while others satirize the potential new Jewish colonists of the future ("Paradise Last"). Among them are to be found works written by both Isaac Asimov and Isaac Bashevis Singer.
