124 pp.


This edition limited to 150 copies. “All of the characters in George Berguño’s first collection of short stories are spiritual sons and daughters of Ishmael. They are strangers and outcasts; beguiled and despised by a world that had once been their home. The stories vary greatly in their settings. From pre-Viking Norway to nineteenth century Chile; from the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire to Hitler’s Germany; from a timeless town in the New World to contemporary Britain – these stories are remarkable for their unpredictable use of the strange and their subtle exploration of the supernatural. The overall effect of the stories is a vision of the world where chance plays havoc with history; where the living are fatefully intertwined with the dead, and where human desires clash with forces unknown.” #44700
