«Si no puedes creer en ellos, no los molestes...»
Si bien Henry James fue un refinado prosista de dramas costumbristas, no menos awesome es su aportación al ámbito de l. a. intriga y el suspense. Profundamente interesado en el terreno de lo sobrenatural, no dejó sin explorar ningún tipo de experiencia extrasensorial, ni se abstuvo de analizar al detalle los demonios que, en cualesquiera formas, perturban al ser humano.
Este volumen recoge el grueso de su narrativa breve fantástica y fantasmagórica. Precede a los relatos el magistral estudio de Leon Edel -considerado unánimemente el mayor especialista en los angeles obra de James del siglo XX-, quien también redactó una minuciosa nota preliminar para cada uno de ellos. Como colofón, reproducimos el ensayo del propio James «¿Hay vida después de los angeles muerte?», que refleja las inquietudes del autor sobre el más allá.
«Fantasmas es l. a. selección más completa de narrativa de terror de Henry James y constituye los angeles mejor manera de asomarse a su obra gótica.»
P. Unamuno, El Mundo

Ana Llurba, Letras Libres

Moorcock used to be prior to his time in lots of methods, however the assortment is still timely.
