His award-winning fiction, the fruit of more than fifty years of intense literary creativity, are well-represented in this volume. Calders' 'magic realist' vision, his playful depiction of man's struggles for survival in a 20th century urban environment and his humorous tales of 'science' and the supernatural, will appeal to young and old alike.
