List of Spanish Dystopias

List of Spanish Dystopias

Diana Q Palardy

8/13/2017

I have created below a list of Spanish dystopias (according to my criteria for dystopias) and distopinas, a term that Miquel Codony uses to describe works that have “esa sustancia elusiva que condensa en sus moléculas la esencia de la distopía” (that elusive substance that condenses in its molecules the essence of dystopia). I have included works of fiction (including novels, short stories, films, plays and even one poetry collection) which either a literary critic, a publishing house, a journalist, a science fiction scholar/specialist, or I myself have labeled as adystopia. Since there is considerable debate as to what technically qualifies as a dystopia and I have not read or seen all of the works included, I have erred on the side of inclusiveness in compiling this list. The works span from 1879, when “El futuro dictador” by José Fernández Bremón was published,* until 2018, with the publication of Los cinco estigmas del éter by Antonio César Murón.  In the list, the default genre for each title listed is narrative (novels or short stories), unless noted otherwise in parentheses after the title. For anthologies and collections, each short story is listed separately when I am able to offer specific information about it; otherwise, the entire anthology/collection is listed. It is important to note that no bibliography is perfect and I would greatly appreciate comments at spanishdystopias@gmail.com, especially regarding suggestions for additions, deletions and corrections. The database is a work in progress and it will continue to be updated and modified over time.

*  It should be noted that originally, it was assumed that “El mundo sin vicios” by Cándido María Trigueros was the first Spanish dystopia; however, Elena de Lorenzo Álvarez argues that it was actually a translation of a story from a different country. See: https://doi.org/10.1080/14753820.2014.962911.
