Finalist of the VI premio Ribera del Duero

Creatures that climb on top of the roofs and start flying; a teenager fascinated by blood, a teacher that finds her neighbor’s head in the garden, a girl unable to part with her father’s teeth, two noisy twins in an experimental music festival, women who jump from the top of a mountain, apocalyptic earthquakes, a sorcerer that writes a spell to bring her daughter back to life.

Las voladoras includes eight short stories located in cities, villages, waste lands, volcanoes where violence and mysticism, earth and heaven, belong to the same ritual and poetic level. Mónica Ojeda makes our head explode and proves in her Andean Gothic that horror and beauty belong to the same family.
