9788483835692: El fin del mundo y un despiadado pais de las maravillas (Spanish Edition) (Andanzas) (Andazas)

Dos historias paralelas se desarrollan en escenarios de nombre evocador: una transcurre en el llamado fin del mundo, una misteriosa ciudad amurallada; la otra, en un Tokio de un futuro no muy lejano, un frio y despiadado pais de las maravillas. En la primera, el narrador y protagonista se ve privado de su sombra y de sus recuerdos, e impelido a leer suenos entre unos habitantes de extranas carencias animicas y unicornios cuyo pelaje se torna dorado en invierno. En la segunda historia, el protagonista es un informatico que trabaja en una turbia institucion gubernamental, enfrentada a otra siniestra organizacion en una guerra por el control de la informacion; sus servicios son requeridos por un inquietante cientifico que juguetea con la manipulacion de la mente y vive aislado en la red de alcantarillado, una red poblada por tenebrosas criaturas carnivoras. / Two parallel stories: In the first one, the narrator is deprived of his shadow, his memories and dreams, forced to read dreams among people with strange psychic shortcomings and unicorns whose fur turns golden in winter. In the second one, the narrator is a computer of refined tastes who works in an institution faced with another organization no less sinister in a war for control of information.
