This book represents a comprehensive study on a marginal genre that reveals key elements of Spanish culture and invites a a better understanding of humanity as a whole. The body of work on the topic of Spanish science fiction is severely limited and, of the few sources that exist, most focus on literature of a historical perspective. The text of the book is in Spanish.

Reviews

"This is a remarkable piece of work, which will redefine the way we read and watch contemporary Spanish science fiction. The author provides us not only with sharp critical analysis, but also with extremely useful research material. Appendixes include interviews with six key authors from the science fiction scene, thus providing exceptionally useful insights into their writing process and cultural background."
