King David and the Spiders from Mars

An anthology of stories edited by

A ghost haunts King David's family. Brothers devour their enemies and each other. A rabbi opens a Chabad House in a sinister New England town. In this book, you will find seven stories as demented and horrifying as the Bible that inspired them.


Dark and enticing, the stories in King David & the Spiders from Mars explore Biblical themes with a paradoxical combination of religious irreverence and respect for the literary richness of the texts. Marked by lush prose, often disturbing at a gut level, these are stories that stay with you. - Ilana Teitelbaum


It is often said that the Bible is the most violent book ever written. This rich tapestry of tales draws on Biblical slaughter, cruelty, and mayhem from ancient times to the modern day. It is a theme anthology that not only keeps you interested in the theme, but makes you look at the source material with new eyes. - Poppy Z. Brite.
