Triunfos de los angeles imaginación y del ingenio, estas narraciones recrean un mundo de escenarios y criaturas insólitos, y ponen en entredicho todos y cada uno de los postulados lógicos en los que se basa nuestro mundo convencional.

Is that seriously possible? I舗m not serious about it at all. It舗s just a fantasy to amuse myself; a plaything! 舡 The heat in the street was terrible: and the airlessness, the bustle, the plaster, the scaffolding, the bricks and the dust all around him, and that special Petersburg stench, so familiar to everyone who is unable to get out of town during the summer舒all worked painfully upon the young man舗s already overwrought nerves. The unbearable stench from the taverns, which are particularly numerous in that part of the town, and the drunken men whom he met continually, although it was a weekday, completed the revolting misery of the picture.
He was about thirty-five, short, stout, even corpulent, and clean shaven. He wore his hair cut short and had a large round head which was particularly prominent at the back. His soft, round, rather snub-nosed face was of a sickly yellowish color, but it also had a vigorous and rather ironical expression. It would have been good-natured, except for a look in the eyes, which shone with a watery, sentimental light under almost white, blinking eyelashes. The expression of those eyes was strangely out of keeping with his somewhat womanish figure, and gave it something far more serious than could be guessed at first sight.
