Minotauro is an old and prestigious sci-fi collection that made available to Spanish speaking public many genre classic as Bradbury's "Martian Chronicles", Wyndham's "The Day of the Triffids" or Sturgeon's "More Than Human". The editorial house has recently launched a new bunch of hardcover new books and also re-edited in a smaller and modern pocket-book format most of the titles available.

Cordwainer Smith is the pen name of Mr. Paul M. A. Linebarger, who lived a comparatively short (1913 - 1966) and difficult life. He was educated in China, Germany and USA. He loose one eye in an accident being a child. Had a PH degree in Political Sciences, was a university professor and worked undercover for CIA. At the same time he wrote fascinating sci-fi stories.

My first contact with the author's stories was "Alpha Ralpha Boulevard" (included in this volume). It was obvious for me that this was a fragment of a greater story, full of mysterious and provoking ideas as the Rediscovery of Man, the Eketeli and so on. I was captivated by the imagery and searched for more works from Cordwainer Smith. Little by little they were appearing in different sci-fi magazines and short stories collections.

This book contains eight stories, being the key ones "Mark Elf", "Alpha Ralpha Boulevard" and "The Game of Rat & Dragon", giving the reader a broad inkling to Cordwainer's universe.

Recently all Cordwainer Smith tales has been published in Spanish in a four volume edition from another editorial house.

This is a wonderful sample from an unjustly underrated author.
