    En las manos maestras de Neil Gaiman, l. a. magia es mucho más que un mero juego de engaños. los angeles destreza y el poder de invención de este gran fabulador transforman el entorno cotidiano en un mundo hechizado por sucesos sombríos y extraños, en el que una anciana puede comprar el Santo Grial en una tienda de segunda mano, unos asesinos se anuncian en los clasificados de un periódico bajo los angeles rúbrica «CONTROL DE PLAGAS», o un muchacho asustado debe negociar con un trol malcarado y mezquino que vive bajo un puente ferroviario.

    Esta recopilación de treinta relatos, poemas narrativos y piezas breves e inclasificables ofrece múltiples y variadas posibilidades para que el lector discover una realidad transformada, astutamente velada por el humo y las sombras, a l. a. vez que tangible y afilada. Todo parece posible en el universo de Gaiman, el gran maestro prestidigitador que despierta los sentidos, cautiva los sueños y mantiene en vilo nuestra mente.

    Maestro indiscutible del relato breve, Augusto Monterroso es autor de una de las obras más cautivadoras y depuradas de los angeles literatura en lengua castellana. Publicó tarde, sin prisas, y nunca se tomó en serio (ni a sí mismo ni al oficio literario). Empeñado en “colocar las comas en su sitio”, como él mismo decía, devoró con fruición los clásicos grecolatinos y los españoles y también las gramáticas y retóricas que pudieran enseñarle a evitar errores de redacción. Fruto de ello es una prosa impecable y engañosamente sencilla que lo ha convertido en un modelo de rigor y estilo indiscutible. *Probó y parodió todos los géneros en un intento de huir del encasillamiento y l. a. rutina y creó una obra de ficción, reunida en este volumen, que va desde el microrrelato, pasando por l. a. fábula y el cuento, hasta su única novela, Lo demás es silencio.

En este volumen, el creador de Coraline y Sandman ha reunido una extraordinaria colección de veinticinco relatos y poemas que puede entenderse como un auténtico festín, un repertorio que concentra todo el potencial fantasioso y onírico de Gaiman: historias de terror y de fantasmas, ficción especulativa y cuentos de hadas, fábulas perversas y versos sorprendentes.

    Como es característico en él, el mundo good no es más que un mero velo o una ilusión tras l. a. cual se despliega un sinfín de realidades paralelas y mundos alternativos, casi siempre amenazantes y ominosos. En los angeles mente creativa de Gaiman, todo es posible: laberintos lunares, amigos imaginarios de carne y hueso, iglús fabricados con libros, piratas muy peculiares, caseras asesinas, objetos hechizados, tarjetas de felicitación que alteran el espacio-tiempo... Un muestrario de circunstancias singulares que confieren a los protagonistas un abanico de experiencias capaces de revelarles conocimiento de sí mismos y emociones que ni siquiera sospechaban poseer.

    Así pues, al lector le aguarda un viaje literario en el que frotarse los ojos y padecer escalofríos, maravillarse y quedar noqueado por el genio de un escritor sofisticado que nos embelesa con sus hechizos y nos traslada a lo más profundo de un país inexplorado donde lo fantástico se hace realidad y lo cotidiano es incandescente.

    Material sensible incluye un relato inédito de American Gods —«Black Dog»—, otro escrito para conmemorar el cincuenta aniversario de «Doctor Who» —«Las nada en punto»— y una ingeniosísima vuelta de tuerca al universo de Sherlock Holmes, «El caso de l. a. muerte y los angeles miel».
