Exclusive Interview: “Hungers As Old As This Land” Author Zachary Rosenberg


It’s been a while since we’ve seen any Jewish people in The Old West. 1974’s Blazing Saddles, to be exact. And even then, it was the regular Old West, not the horror Old West. But the latter is what you get with Zachary Rosenberg’s new Weird West / historical horror / Jewish horror / LGBTQ+ horror novella Hungers As Old As This Land (paperback, Kindle). In the following email interview, Rosenberg discusses what inspired and influenced this multi-genre mash-up that even Mel Brooks wouldn’t have thought to mix together.
