WANDERING STARS

This anthology about Jews and Jewishness combines fantasies by mainstream writers like Singer and Malamud with tales by science fictionists, some written for this volume. Sheckley creates an automated city that's the quintessential Jewish mother; Carol Cart provides a Jewish father driven wild by his daughter's marriage to a goy who also happens to be a Martian; Silverberg, Tenn and Ellison offer variations on the theme of alien as Jew; plus others. A few clinkers but the subject seems to have brought out the best in most of the contributors.
