El asombro

Includes audio of the author

Winning novel of the 1st International Ink Digital Novel Prize.

The award, made in collaboration with the UAM Xochimilco, had an internationally recognized jury. El asombro was the winning novel by unanimous decision. Located in the nineteenth century, it tells the story of an English merchant Lawrence Fortwright. Although Lawrence’s anecdotes are spanning more than twenty years and three continents, this novel revolves around solving the Mystery of the Abbey of Malmesbury, who occupied the attention of the press in the so-called “autumn mist” 1894, and was known in the headlines as “the Mystery of the floating man.” Highly ambitious, in the words of the jury, El asombro is an ingenious puzzle on the same style as Rayuela, employing a style to catch and engage the reader, who then makes his own reading and becomes the final piece that completes this work.
