Fiction. Latino/Latina Studies. In Mexico, cuentos de fantasma are a popular form of literature that combines fantasy, folktales, and pulp fiction. FANTASMAS is the first selection of such stories, and it features nineteen new stories by well-known and emerging Mexican American authors. In her introduction, Kathleen AlcalAA distinguishes these stories from those by Latin American magical realists, and discusses how a new generation of Mexican American writers has infused the folktales of the past with a sense of irony, humor, and belief.
