By Gustav Meyrink

Tomando como punto de partida los angeles vieja leyenda judía del monstruoso gólem, un ser man made fabricado por un rabino que le insuflaba los angeles vida escondiéndole en l. a. boca un pedazo de pergamino con una palabra mágica escrita en él, el maestro de l. a. literatura fantástica Gustav Meyrink teje con overall brillantez una novela poética y cautivadora que atrapa al lector desde el principio y ya no lo suelta. Son muchos los que han glosado las bondades de "El gólem", y en palabras de Jorge Luis Borges, uno de esas larga lista de notables enamorados de l. a. obra del escritor vienés: "Novalis anheló alguna vez ¿narraciones oníricas, narraciones inconsecuentes, regidas por asociación, como sueños¿. Tan fácil es componer narraciones de esas como imposible es componerlas de modo que no sean ilegibles. "El gólem" ¿increíblemente¿ es onírico y es lo contrario de ilegible. Es los angeles vertiginosa historia de un sueño. En los primeros capítulos (los mejores) el estilo es admirablemente visible; en los últimos arrecian los milagros de folletín (...). No sé si "El gólem" es un libro importante; sé que es un libro único".

Moorcock was once sooner than his time in lots of methods, however the assortment continues to be timely.
