Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Dedalus Book of Spanish Fantasy is an ambitious and wide-ranging collection of texts from the middle of the 19th century to the present day, by authors writing in Castilian, Basque, Catalan and Gallego. Only two of the stories have appeared in translation before and while some authors (Goytisolo, Atxaga, Mendoza and Javias Maria) might be known to an English-reading public, most authors have never previously been translated into English.<P>The stories have been selected to give the reader that frisson that one expects from the truly fantastic: from fabulous creatures and ghost stories to doppelgangers and time travel metamorphoses. The anthology is enriched by a wide variety of settings, characters, situations, themes and narrative modes which combine to produce one of the most important collections of Spanish Literature to appear in English.
