A powerful collection of stories of the strange and supernatural. Despite coming from south of the border, I'd say these stories lean closer to horror or weird fiction than to magical realism. Some stories, such as "Chac Mool" and "Por boca de los dioses" incorporate elements of Mexican mythology and dead Aztec gods to quite creepy effect. Others, such as "Aura," "Un fantasma tropical," or "La muñeca reina" are like modern Gothic fables of entrapment and thwarted sexuality. Some are downright disturbing, like the very surreal "Letanía de la orquídea." A very powerful collection. ( )
