Mexican Speculative Fiction All of the credit for this project must really go to Ruy Feben who came up with the concept, was the key point of contact in Mexico and put together an fascinating selection of writers. Thanks must also go to Alberto Chimal for composing a thought-provoking introduction and to Edgar Hernández Zepeda for helping us redesign the website. Palabras Errantes is grateful to the University of Cambridge’s Festival of Ideas for allowing us to present the project as part of the festival in 2013. Muchas gracias to the writers for donating their work and to all the translators for their beautiful renderings of the Mexican imagination into English.
