For many years I have made a living on television taking advantage of my absurdist sense of humor. Now I’ve had the idea of continuing to make use of it with a philanthropic purpose. To this end I have created this blog. Like the books that have come out of it, its purpose is to raise funds for UNICEF. But it’s free. Only at the end of each post I include a link to UNICEF just in case someone wants to contribute to help children in need in exchange for my stories. Imagine that one of those children asks for a little help but he can not offer anything in return. Well, I offer you these stories in his name.
Compilation of eight books of absurdist humor, each of them integrated by a wide range of short stories, all well seasoned with large doses of what anthropologists call “idiotic thinking”. The protagonist of the first is the Victorian ghost in all its forms: visible ghosts, invisible ghosts, dancing ghosts, mischievous ghosts, crazy ghosts, singing ghosts, giggling ghosts, ghostly ghosts… The second addresses the mysteries of the paranormal, mainly by the hand of the Society for Psychical Research (inevitably, also here you’ll find some ghosts). The protagonist of the third is Sigmund Freud in his awkward Viennese beginnings (there’s no ghost here). The fourth plunges us into the Romantic era (there’s a ghost around again). The fifth insists on the subject of the paranormal, this time located in New York City in the mid-1930s (more ghosts here). The sixth portrays the atmosphere that filled Paris during the “Belle Époque” (don’t worry, no ghosts). The seventh has as its main character a Superantihero who faces the gangsters and the political corruption in the New York of the mid-19th century (not a single ghost here). And finally the eighth delves into the secrets of Kabbalah by the hand of the famous wise men of Chelm (no ghosts but a golem and a dybbuk). (All my benefits go to Unicef):
