From the Back Cover:

In 'Black Water', Alberto Manguel has assembled an awe-inspiring array of world writers, with weird and wonderful stories from Jean Cocteau, Edgar Allan Poe, Italo Calvino, H.G. Wells, Vladimir Nabokov, Oscar Wilde, Franz Kafka, Ursula LeGuin and many, many more.

With seventy-two fantastic tales which evoke the darkness that lies beyond the real world, this mesmerizing collection will transport the reader to the very edge of the twilight zone, deep into the realms of horror and delight, of hauntings and time-warps, or dreams and the supernatural, of wonder and magic …

“The memory of our greatest stories is a form of imagination, and this 'Anthology of Fantastic Literature' is a treasure-house of memory.”
JORGE LUIS BORGES

“As an introduction to the delights of fiction about “the impossible seeping into the possible” 'Black Water' has not been surpassed.”
SUNDAY TIMES

“Evidently an editor both enthusiastic and meticulous … with a brilliant, strong, natural taste, which enables him to include stories from all over the world but, somehow, make a coherent volume with them. One almost hopes for a power cut, a high wind, a banging shutter and a flickering lamp.”
GUARDIAN

“An uncommonly satisfying collection … Especially welcome is the generous selection of fiction from Latin America, the current capital of the fantastic.”
NEW YORK TIMES

Also available in Flamingo: 'The Gates of Paradise: The Flamingo Anthology of Erotic Literature, In Another Part of the Forest: The Flamingo Anthology of Gay Literature' and 'News From a Foreign Country Came', Alberto Manguel’s prize-winning novel.
