Descripción

114 pages. Milton Mills, evil in its purest, is the main character of these ten short stories. He is seductive, mysterious or histrionic actor: it depends on the time, place or sinner who wanted to convince. He is the guide for a trip to our most remote dreams and we will travel from Russia to Spain, from New York to Sad Bride, from the seventies to the first moment of Creation. Ten Masks of Evil is a volume of short stories created to introduce readers in a new world which is growing as the book progresses. We can read the stories one at a time, but they are complementary and the main characters appear in more than one, under different disguises and situations. The book is born of a game of cards between the reader and the author, who is asking about the true nature of fiction and reality. Each short story offers a different style: thriller, comedy, romantic tale, historical story or fantasy to complete a literary and experiential way. At he end, in the last story, it is Edgar Allan Poe, in the last moments of his life and the strange circumstances surrounding his death, who will confuse his own biography with those on which he wrote or knew, the same as it has happened to every author and reader, to every policeman or killer, to every person or imagination. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. N° de ref. de la librería 9781470175962

About the Author:

Martin Cid, novelist. Proud ( and excessive) pipe smoker, virulent talker, quasi-abstemious, his spacious presence has had the bad taste to fill the nights in Madrid with puffs for more than ten years. Writer and author of three novels and an essay, it stays admirer of Jack Daniel’s. ‘Ariza’, his first published novel, written with Isabel del Rio, it tells the Medina family history and its two realities: one metaphoric travel through the time and a real travel by train through the Central Plateau of Spain. ‘Ariza’ is magic and time, and symmetry in this eternal search for truth. Prodigious drinker of absinthe. ‘A Century of Ashes’, author’s first novel published in solitary, it goes back of the Old South of the United States and tells a story of hatred and violence, of mixed feelings, of arrogant men and ruthless women. Told with humor, however it brings us to the darker side of the human being: from the greatness to utter pettiness. Magnanimous brandy taster. ‘Eminescu’s 7 Sins’ is inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy. It recounts the torments of a poet, up to the madness or sanity: if we are speaking about literature, we never know the border. Quasi-religious French champagne gourmet. ‘Propaganda, lies and editing’ is a foray into the land of thought and the influence of propaganda in film and in the social and ethical norms of our society. He has also written in the media and as a literary curiosity: he has invented his own cocktail. He has given numerous lectures about Kabbalah, cinema, arts... and it is possible, if we ask in advance, that he can speak about James Joyce, his favorite author. He dedicates himself completely to literature and he has never worked (or will)... in something else than the literature. You can usually see (and hear) him in the bars in Madrid. They say he has already paid the studies of the children of several bartenders. First Prize of Jérez Short Stories, 2009 Prize Café Compás with the Short Story ‘Leviathan’ Prize Short Story Dante Aliguieri, 2007 Editor of Yareah magazine.
