Reviews - What do customers think about Fantasmas: Supernatural Stories by Mexican American Writers?

A Long Awaited Release  Mar 22, 2002
This book is actually edited by my former Creative Writing Professor, (in a later incarnation of the same class from which the book sprung). Dr. Johnson has a talent for seeing quality in other people's stories. If you like scary stories, try these on for size. They are interesting both in content and in cultural elements. It's about time that the literary world started taking Hispanic literature seriously. It has so much more flavor than a lot (not all, but a lot) of what comes out of (my own) WASPish heritage. Try it. You'll like it.
Truly scary reading on a cold, dark night!  Feb 8, 2002
Aptly edited by Rob Johnson (teacher of American literature at the University of Texas-Pan American, South Texas Valley) Fantasmas: Supernatural Stories By Mexican American Writers is an impressive and wide-ranging anthology of folklore-style fantasy tales, or cuentos de fantasma. Enhanced with an informative introduction by Kathleen Alcala, as well as being intrinsically shocking, spooky, and rich with cultural and traditional lore, the stories comprising Fantasmas make for truly scary reading on a cold, dark night!
