‘At long last, there is an anthology that makes great works in the fantastic by Hispanic women writers accessible to an anglophone public. Women authors in Spanish-speaking countries have a long tradition of crafting powerful and original works in the fantastic genre – and an equally lengthy history of being unknown outside their borders. This judicious selection of short stories by five major figures offers excellent critical introductions and sensitive translations, and no doubt will be of use to scholars, students at all levels, and fans of fantastic fiction for years to come. Professors García and López-Pellisa are to be commended for this important volume.’
-Professor Dale Knickerbocker, East Carolina University

‘This a fine introduction to off-beat tales of the weird and wonderful written by top women writers from Spain and Spanish America. It is extremely useful for students of Spanish who want to read the original texts, guided by notes and a vocabulary, and be thoroughly entertained and bemused.’
-Professor Catherine Davies, University of London
