Leaves from the Garden of Eden

Leaves from the Garden of Eden: One Hundred Classic Jewish Tales by Howard Schwartz

A collection of tales.  A number from his earlier collections.

They range over.  Fairy tales (and this has an appendix with Aarne-Thompson types) and anecdotes of the supernatural.  Quite a bit about people's demonic doubles managing to dispose of them and take over their lives.
