Edgar Cantero

Spain (b.1981)

Edgar is a writer and cartoonist from Barcelona. The highly cultured Catalan literary tradition soon lost influence on him in favor of Hollywood blockbusters, videogames and old mass-market paperbacks. In 2007 he joined the often-trialed satirical magazine El Jueves and published his debut novel, Dormir amb Winona Ryder (Sleeping with Winona Ryder); it was followed by the punk dystopian thriller Vallvi in 2011. His material ranges from short stories to scripts in Catalan, Spanish or English. It often features girls kissing, stuff exploding, and ill-timed jokes. The Supernatural Enhancements (2014) is his first novel in English.

Genres: Mystery, Horror
Edgar Cantero recommends
My Sister, the Serial Killer (2018)
Oyinkan Braithwaite
"My Sister, the Serial Killer is a gem, in the most accurate sense: small, hard, sharp, and polished to perfection. Every pill-sized chapter is exemplary. Where others waste ink and trees, Braithwaite can conjure fully-detailed settings and characters with a finger snap. Of these, all shine. One dazzles. Tell Shirley Jackson that the Merricat Blackwood of the 21st century lives in Lagos, her name is Ayoola, and she is so obliviously/adorably/hilariously/heartbreakingly wicked, she'll make you cry tears of all flavors."
