Sinopsis

 

Co-selected by Mariano Villarreal and Luis Pestarini

Translated by Sue Burke and Lawrence Schimel

Six top Spanish-language authors prove that science fiction remains sharp and visionary, with stories about the deepest anxieties, challenges, and problems of our societies. Their speculations and metaphors analyze and dissect a reality in continuous change.

  • The Texture of Words, by Felicidad Martínez: women seek to lead despite being blind and dependent, while men fight constant wars.
  • Deirdre, by Lola Robles: in the future, robotics can create made-to-order lovers.
  • Greetings from a Zombie Nation, by Eric J. Mota: a stagnant society turns its citizens into the living dead.
  • Light a Lone Candle, by Victor Conde: social networks want too much and never let go.
  • Bodies, by Juanfran Jiménez: in a globalized and pseudodemocratic Europe, the rich practice sex tourism by means of mind exchange.
  • Memory, by Teresa P. Mira de Echeverría: personal relationships and sex roles evolve in radical ways on a terraformed Mars in a relatively near future.
  • Science Fiction from Spain, by Mariano Villarreal: a close view of what Spanish science fiction is and has been.

      La crítica ha dicho

       

      Terra Nova is a treasure-trove of Spanish science fiction, and I hope to see more such anthologies in the near future.

      Al igual que con Castillos en el Aire, mis felicitaciones por traducir al inglés este otro gran volumen con una buena representación del género fantástico en español y así difundirlo internacionalmente. Enhorabuena!
