Publisher Description

WITH AN INTRODUCTION TO THE SHORT STORY OF THE FANTASTIC

Nobel Prize for Literature nominee Jaime Martinez Tolentino presents 13 stories of the fantastic to read after midnight, and also sets out to explore the differences between the various kinds of such stories—the uncanny, the supernatural, the marvelous, the fantastic, magical realism, etc.

The stories contained in 13 AFTER MIDNIGHT all belong to what is, arguably, the most misunderstood literary genre, or modality: the Fantastic—and fantastic they are, in all sense of the word!

In his book, [Martínez Tolentino] toys with the ambiguities of what we commonly call reality. But, before allowing us to enter those bewildering worlds, he leads us through a vast antechamber in which, with the patience of a tour guide, he explains the world of the short story of the fantastic [...] That antechamber, takes the form of an Introduction to the Short Story of the Fantastic as a literary genre, and with that essay, Jaime has achieved one of the clearest and most systematic definitions of the short story of the fantastic that we have ever read.
—Professor Rafael Andreu Wolmar, of the Inter-American University of Puerto Rico
