The echo of the great characters and motifs of the novels of The Cemetery of Forgotten Books series resonates in the stories of Carlos Ruiz Zafón.

A boy decides to become a writer when he discovers that his inventions hold the power to entice the rich girl who has stolen his heart…

An architect flees Constantinople with plans for an impregnable library…

A strange gentleman tempts Cervantes to write a book that has never existed…

And Gaudí, sailing to a mysterious rendezvous in New York, delights in a spectacle of light and steam, the stuff that cities should be made of.

Gathered here for the first time – and some never before published in English – these stories showcase the talents of Carlos Ruiz Zafón, a writer beloved by millions of readers and a master who has left us too soon.
