Eugenio Praz, el fantasma (Eugenio Praz, ghost)

Novela juvenil | SM Ediciones, 2002 | 160 pages

Eugenio is a typical teenager. His main pastime is watching horror films and his greatest wish is to not have to do anything but lie around in front of the TV, if possible for the rest of eternity–in a very literal sense because Eugenio is a ghost as he has been for a hundred years.

But then the authorities who rule over the phantom world advise him that his rest is about to end. He is told to take on a number of tasks, the most important of which is becoming a hunter of wayward spirits. If he fails to accomplish his assignment he will no longer be allowed to remain the lazy ghost he enjoys being but will be punished with a permanent stay in the underworld.

To carry out his mission, Eugenio Praz teams up with his friend Blanquita Soler, a teenage medium who is the only human who can see him, and whose goal is preventing a war in the world of the incarnate.
