“Greetings From a Zombie Nation” by Eric J. Mota, translated by Lawrence Schimel (Terra Nova: An Anthology of Contemporary Spanish Science Fiction, 2013)

Wicked Weeds by Pedro Cabiya, translated by Jessica Powell (Mandel-Vilar Press, 2016)

Combines magic, fantasy, eroticism, and delirious humor to explore universal questions of race and sexuality.
