Los mejores libros jamás escritos.

«Si no puedes creer en ellos, no los molestes. .. »

Si bien Henry James fue un refinado prosista de dramas costumbristas, no menos amazing es su aportación al ámbito de l. a. intriga y el suspense. Profundamente interesado en el terreno de lo sobrenatural, no dejó sin explorar ningún tipo de experiencia extrasensorial, ni se abstuvo de analizar al detalle los demonios que, en cualesquiera formas, perturban al ser humano.

Este volumen recoge el grueso de su narrativa breve fantástica y fantasmagórica. Precede a los relatos el magistral estudio de Leon Edel -considerado unánimemente el mayor especialista en l. a. obra de James del siglo XX-, quien también redactó una minuciosa nota preliminar para cada uno de ellos. Como colofón, reproducimos el ensayo del propio James «¿Hay vida después de los angeles muerte? », que refleja las inquietudes del autor sobre el más allá.

Reseña:
«Fantasmas es los angeles selección más completa de narrativa de terror de Henry James y constituye l. a. mejor manera de asomarse a su obra gótica. »
P. Unamuno, El Mundo

«Henry James siempre es inspirador y decididamente contemporáneo. Jaume Bonfill, de Penguin Clásicos afirma que su relevancia no solo es histórica, ya que tiene "recursos y sorpresas que los lectores de hoy siguen percibiendo como novedosos, y que asimismo aún ponen en práctica, por ejemplo, los guionistas de cine o televisión". »
Ana Llurba, Letras Libres

«A él le interesa el drama psicológico, el desgarro o los angeles epifanía, de ahí tantas adaptaciones al cine. »
Núria Escur, los angeles Vanguardia
