Mario Levrero
Cuentos cansados (Tired stories)
Despite the fact that he feels very, very, very tired, the narrator of this heart-warming short
story cannot go to sleep before having told his eager listener Nicolás a story. And as soon as
he finishes a story, Nicolás begs him for more. Being just as tired as their narrator (and maybe
as the author himself), the characters of his stories fall asleep in every possible and impossible
place and position without noticing what is happening around them.
A refreshing and expressive work with an almost theatrical character, that combines
complexity with the clarity of a well-done short story.

There’s only one mother, and all of them are here
There’s no mother like your own mother… but there are
many kinds of mothers! Some of them are Foretellers,
and they know everything, sometimes even before it
happens! Some others are Adventurous and they take
their children out for a new adventure at every chance.
There are Executive moms who work so much they have
developed the ability to do three things at the same time!
Some mothers are more creative, some are more
practical, but they all have one thing in common: they
love their kids more than they love themselves!
Spain: Lumen, 2013 (80 pp | All Age)
German and Dutch translation rights SvH Literarische Agentur
(All other rights Penguin Random House Spain)
Look inside
These are the moms who take work home with them and back to the office without ever
getting a hair out of place. One moment she is talking about the exact amount of cough
medicine her kid is taking and in the next second, she is discussing some annual statistics on
interplanetary economies. Inevitably, she spends many hours in front of her laptop, but that
can’t stop her from caring for her kids at all times, since they are able to set up an improvised
office almost anywhere. They are the clear that women can do about hundreds of thousands
things at the same time. They are organized and efficient and in their planners you’ll find
work meetings and paediatrician appointments galore. When they are home, surrounded by
their kin, one would think they have six arms, because an Executive Mom can cook a stew
while writing an important report, playing Monopoly with the older kid and feeding the
youngest, all without ever losing track of the conversation she’s having on her phone about
the meeting she missed because the kid had a fever.

Grannies. A Handbook
Kids tend to think that grandmothers are old and out of
touch with the modern world, but it’s easy to recognize a
super granny if one knows what to look for. A super granny
can line up for a week to get tickets for the One Direction
concert; she can cook a meal for 3 and feed 250 people; and
she can skydive to get the best spot at a crowded beach.
Grannies were once the coolest kids in town, and here’s a
handbook to spot every type of grandmothers.
Spain: Lumen, 2014 (64 pp. | All Age)
German and Dutch translation rights SvH Literarische Agentur
(All other rights Penguin Random House Spain)
Look inside
Don’t be fooled by the classical look of many grannies. They may not be
fashionable but they know what’s going in the world because they are
lucky to have time for almost everything and they like to keep up to date.
There are no insurmountable distances and the world becomes small when
it comes to being close to their grandsons and understanding their
jargons. If they need to modernize their vocabulary and learn to use the
computer like they’ve done it all their lives, they do it. Some might say that
in their time there wasn’t anything of the likes of internet, or Skype or
Facebook or Whatsapp, but… who said these times aren’t their time as
well? Don’t they have a future, too? A supergranny can adapt to anything
if it’s necessary.

Grannies from A to Z
In the magical universe of grannies one can find the
tastiest recipes, rollercoasters of memories and the
sweetest candies. Dreamy grannies tiptoe to catch
dreams while other grannies travel around the world or
weave the greatest stories. They all have their secrets,
their favourite objects and particular smells that
distinguish them. And some grannies seem to be the sum
of many grandmothers. This book presents twenty-nine
kinds of grannies. Can you tell what kind of granny is
your own?
Spain: Lumen, 2012 (80 pp. | All Age), Brazil: Sur Livros (rights sold)
German and Dutch translation rights SvH Literarische Agentur
(All other rights Penguin Random House Spain)
Look inside
They always look like they just arrived from a far away fairy tale. Some experts insist that
they´ve seen them fly in through the bedroom window. The most particular trait of these
grannies is their unique stare, which changes colour depending on the story that comes to their
minds: blue iris is for fairy tales with clear skies and bright suns; leaf green for the stories
about enchanted forests; rich brown when they tell autumn
stories. They know all the words in the world and when to use
them right, that’s why nobody can beat them when it comes to
inventing characters that are always so real that some kids are
even able to touch them. They weave stories that leave their
grandchildren open-mouthed. Having a sleep-over at a Storyweaver granny’s place is always an adventure: it’s up to their
grandchildren to choose where they want their imagination to
travel to.

La Reina de cristal I (The Crystal Queen I)
At the age of seventeen, all the young people of Hydra go through the
ritual of the sea, but only a few — mostly women — turn into sirens
and discover the gift of their new condition: clairvoyance, memory,
compassion … The day Kira discovered her gift began with a bad
dream. Yet, despite it, she had no idea of how much her life was
about to change: from the fishermen’s village to the court, palace
intrigues, power struggles between the fraternities, the war with Decia
… And in the middle of it all, Kira, the ultimate weapon, the Crystal
Queen, in conflict between love and treason to her people.
La Reina de cristal II (The Crystal Queen II)
Kira is in Decia, her enemies’ country, as a captive. She has been
taken there to prevent her people, Hydra, from using their magic gifts
in the war against the Decians. Because she is the Crystal Queen,
capable of ruling the waters. And, worst of all, everything is Edan’s
fault — Edan, the only man Kira has been really in love with. He has
offered her to his brother, King Kadar, who has made her his fiancée.
For her, there is no greater humiliation, and nevertheless, there is
something that prevents her from hating Kadar. After all, love and
hate can be two sides of the same coin. – The ending – treacheries,
ambition and love!
La Reina de cristal III (The Crystal Queen III)
Kira has become the queen of the Decians, people who hate her. She
is the Hydran foreigner who commands the waters, who has woken
up the damned, and caused a civil war … She can’t trust anyone —
not even her compatriot Ode, thirsty of power, nor Edan, the love of
her life. Driven to despair, she turns to an old witch, the only one
who might understand the nature of the Crystal Queen and the
conspiracy that hovers over her destiny, much more terrible than she
imagines …

La Lluna de Gel (Ice moon)
La lluna de gel narrates the true story of a girl who fled from
prostitution. Young Ileana, the protagonist, recalls very vividly
her origins in a village in the Romanian region of Moldavia, the
poorest in the country. When she was only fourteen years old, her
parents sent her away with two of her brothers to work in
Bucharest, since they couldn’t support her. In the capital, Ileana
found much more than an underpaid job; she found modelling
agencies that could make her dreams come true. Thus begins the
story of a girl who, at sixteen, is harassed by a worldwide
prostitution network. This is history with fictional characters,
scenes, settings and situations, but with a heart that beats
vigorously.

El Octavo Clan (The Eighth Clan)
What used to be the flourishing city of New York is now a ruin of
glass and metal, submerged in polluted water, with only the top floors
of the skyscrapers poking out. The few survivors of the catastrophe
have divided into clans and specialized their crafts to find a means of
living. Survival, however, is a constant fight, because resources are
scarce in the city now called Nyork by its inhabitants.
In this hostile environment, there is little hope for the small group of
Seagrass Shepherds, the only remaining members of their clan that
have not been enslaved or killed by the omnipotent Techs and their
assassins, the Predators. Belonging to the weakest clans of Nyork,
they live in the lower apartments touching the water, under the
constant threat of being attacked by one of the dreadful monsters that lie in wait beneath the
surface.
As their leader, it is young Syren’s responsibility to assure their survival during the cold
period that is approaching. Surrounded by enemies, there is only a remote chance that either
of the seven clan members will make it. Then, suddenly, Logan comes to their world, and
with him the chance of a better life for all of them. But in order to achieve this, the Seagrass
Shepherds have to confront their worst enemies and accept the risk that not all of them will
make it. In their incessant struggle to survive, Syren has to realize more than once that
following the voice of her heart is not always the best choice for the rest of the clan –
especially when it comes to Logan.
A thrilling fantasy novel with a breath-taking plot full of love, hatred, jealousy, conspiracy,
courage and revenge, that shows how hard it can be to put one’s wishes aside for the good of
the community. All this happens in front of the impressive scenery of a semi-submerged New
York that is slowly being recaptured by nature.

In his dystopian debut novel, Carlos Fajardo Calpe paints a dark
vision of the future: In a post-apocalyptic world where electricity,
technology and modern achievements have vanished over night
and the urge to survive in the midst of destruction and savagery
predominates over everything else, only the strongest will
survive.
It has been four years, since the mysterious power outage set back
society to the Stone Age and Lucas arrived to the small selfsufficient farm far away from the city where he was born. To
keep the little community alive, it is strictly forbidden to leave the
valley they live in. But when Mara, the girl he’s in love with,
suddenly falls ill, Lucas and his friends decide to leave
nevertheless and search for the medicine that can save her life. A breath-taking journey begins
– through a world in which nobody can be trusted and other survivors can be your worst
enemies. But although there is only a remote chance to find the life-saving medicine, his love
for Mara prevents Lucas from giving up, even when all hope seems to be gone.
A gripping novel with constant unexpected plot twists and a shocking ending that shows a
scenario which doesn’t seem unlikely in our industrialized world where almost everything
depends on technology.

Moon River
SERIES: El clan de los náufragos (The clan of the shipwrecked)
In the lives of Victor, Martina, Lauren, Abril and Max, signs are pointing to doom. When
destiny brings them together, they won’t blow this chance, but found the „clan of the
shipwrecked“. It offers them a piece of solid ground on which they can share their doubts and
wishes, grow together, overcome their nightmares and even fall in love. But nevertheless, they
are no massive, indestructible sea wall. Instead, every one of them stays a single rock in the
surf, independent from each other – and very different. Still, they support each other and resist
the headwind …
#1: De aquí a al luna … y vuelta (From here to the moon ... and back)
One Sunday afternoon, Victor has nothing better to do than,
time and again, taking the Underground Number 3 in search
of inspiration. In the literal sense of the word, he is an
“underground poet” who finds his muses “under the ground.”
Then, he exchanges glances with a girl who seems to be fallen
straight out of heaven …
Martina has been sitting the whole day on the platform, trying
to find the strength to take the next train. She is absolutely
afraid to do so. Fortunately, Victor “saves” her by inviting her
to have a cup of hot chocolate at the next station. At their
table, there are two female students supposed to jointly write a
thesis although they are totally different: Lauren is annoyed
with the whole world, but luckily, Abril believes in the power
of destiny and immediately talks to Victor and Martina.
When Max, the waiter, joins them, they find that any of them aimlessly drifts through life,
even if each in his or her own way. They are shipwrecked, but from this moment on, they
have something to hold on to: each other.
A novel about friendship, impossible dreams and love: the perfect book to read during a
sunny afternoon, sitting in the shade of a tree and enjoying the first breezes of spring.

But her parents do not let her have her own life. Martina will

Max’s?
April is in a tough spot: she has to face alone the
reappearance of her mother. She and Víctor are in love, but
as one lives in Boston and the other in Barcelona, distance
might prove to have more power than love...
And Lauren is on the brink of success: she has been casted

absolute failure!
Whatever happens, whoever they face, nothing can separate
them... or can’t it? At their return from vacations, the
Castaway’s Clan gathers again at their isle in the Barcelona Eixample district. Only two
months have passed, but everything has changed.
Víctor, the gang’s underground poet, is living his American dream with a scholarship to
attend a poetry campus. He is in a complicated long-distance relationship with Abril, who is
having one of the hardest times in her life: after a decade without news from her mother, she
has made contact... Martina, on her side, is fighting a double war against her parents, who
oppose that someone of her social status pursues a degree in Art and, moreover, have
forbidden her to see Max. Meanwhile, he is saving money secretly to leave his foster home
and move in with her when he is eighteen.
Lauren, the toughest – and luckiest – girl in the Clan, has got a supporting role as an actress in

Cliff Seymour
Los secretos del Viejo Horace
Scott is 27 years old and the only thing he can brag of until now
is to have failed in each and every aspects of his life. After
giving up two degrees, he has passed through different jobs
without taking roots in any of them. Love has been a constant
failure for him, too. Since his last girlfriend abandoned him,
Scott feels his life as an endless desert. With his self-esteem on
minimum, he is forced to accept a simple – and apparently underpaid job in his own building. Since the first day, the
hermit-like tenant of the attic will ask Scott to play snakes and
ladders with him, which Scott has not played since he was a kid.
Very soon, Scott will discover that the elder uses the squares of
the board to give him essential lessons – one every morning- for
his life. This simple pastime (created by the Greek soldiers
during the Troy’s siege) will help Horace to teach Scott the keys
of the art of living and how to repair those mistakes that led him to failure until now. While
the mornings pass by among coffees, rounds and conversations, Scott will begin to understand
the cause and effect that has given shape to his present. However, Horace will also advise him
that knowing the rules of the game is not enough. Once you are aware of the tramps and
dangers, the labyrinths and shortcuts, you must be brave enough to move forward the board of
life with courage and sense of adventure.

to struggle with.
