Read full description of the books:



En el más oscuro rincón de un callejón del Londres victoriano, el jorobado loco Narbondo y su ayudante devuelven los muertos a la vida.
Al acogedor calor de una tabaquería, los filósofos callejeros del Club Trismegisto se estremecen de temor mientras escuchan los desvariados recuerdos de uno de sus colegas.
En las mohosas y húmedas ruinas de un cementerio en lo alto de una colina, el único sonido que altera la quietud de la noche es el raspar de una pala contra las podridas maderas de un ataúd largo tiempo olvidado.
Y, por encima de la bruma londinense, surcando incansable el estrellado cielo, un dirigible sigue su viaje de décadas, tripulado por un esqueleto e impulsado por la voluntad de un hombrecillo -un homúnculo- con la habilidad de conducir a los hombres a la locura...
Con esta irónica, mordaz y apasionante novela, que ganó a su publicación el premio Philip K. Dick a la mejor novela del año publicada en paperback, James P. Blaylock se sitúa a la cabeza de los escritores más imaginativos de ciencia ficción. Dotado de un enorme sentido de la fantasía, es autor también de la novela The Digging Leviathan, y de La Tierra de los sueños, aparecida en la colección de fantasía de esta misma editorial.

Read information about the author

Ebook Homúnculo read Online! James Paul Blaylock is an American fantasy author. He is noted for his distinctive style. He writes in a humorous way: His characters never walk, they clump along, or when someone complains (in a flying machine) that flight is impossible, the other characters agree and show him why he's right.

He was born in Long Beach, California; studied English at California State University, Fullerton, receiving an M.A. in 1974; and lives in Orange, California, teaching creative writing at Chapman University. Many of his books are set in Orange County, California, and can more specifically be termed "fabulism" — that is, fantastic things happen in our present-day world, rather than in traditional fantasy, where the setting is often some other world. His works have also been categorized as magic realism.

He and his friends Tim Powers and K.W. Jeter were mentored by Philip K. Dick. Along with Powers he invented the poet William Ashbless. Blaylock and Powers have often collaborated with each other on writing stories, including The Better Boy, On Pirates, and The William Ashbless Memorial Cookbook.

Blaylock is also currently director of the Creative Writing Conservatory at the Orange County High School of the Arts, where Powers is Writer in Residence.
