Friends' books at the Madrid Book Fair

Here's a photo I snapped with my phone yesterday of the Bibliópolis/Alamut stall at the Madrid Book Fair.

Publisher Luis G. Prado, poses with (left to right, from front) Esperanza del Venado (Hart's Hope) by Orson Scott Card, El tapiz del vampiro (The Vampire Tapestry) by Suzy McKee Charnas suzych, A punto de espada (Swordspoint) by Ellen Kushner ellen_kushner, Hôtel Transylvania (Hotel Transylvania) by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, La muerte del nigromante (Death of the Necromancer) by Martha Wells marthawells, La era del Drácula (Anno Dracula) by Kim Newman, La última noche de Hipatia by Eduardo Vaquerizo, and many novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, a Polish writer very popular in Spain – a great writer, in my opinion.

Bibliópolis/Alamut publishes science fiction, fantasy, horror, historical fiction, and noir. Many of its books are translations of outstanding works from around the world, but the catalog also includes Spain's best genre authors.

The 69th annual Madrid Book Fair is being held daily from May 28 to June 13 in Retiro Park, near my home. I went yesterday as part of the Madrid Writer's Critique Group field trip to the fair. I purchased only one book, Los tejedores de cabellos (Die Haarteppichknüpfer) by Andreas Eschbach, published by Bibliópolis, but I shall return.
