About the Book

Creatures that shed their skin and roam the night. Vampires in Mexico City struggling with disenchantment. An apocalypse with giant penguins. Legends of magic scorpions and tales of a ceiba tree surrounded by human skulls. Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s short stories are infused with Mexican folklore, yet firmly rooted in reality; a reality that is transformed as the fantastic erodes the rational.

Spanning a variety of genres (fantasy, science fiction, horror) and time periods, This Strange Way of Dying is an exceptional debut collection that will not easily be forgotten.
