En el año 470, Wulfric - uno de los más notables guerreros visigodos- es enviado a Hispania por el rey Eurico con la misión de aclarar unos misteriosos sucesos que obstaculizan los planes del monarca para ocupar toda la antigua provincia romana: desde hace meses desaparecen jóvenes sin dejar rastro, y la población culpa a los pocos visigodos asentados en Hispania de haberlos secuestrado; incluso se rumorea que estos jóvenes son utilizados en ceremonias demoníacas y rituales de canibalismo. En De buitres y lobos Francisco Galván narra, en clave de misterio y aventuras, uno de los episodios más trascendentales y menos divulgada de la Historia Antigua de España: la llegada de los visigodos a la Península.

Harry Haller is a sad and lonely figure, a reclusive intellectual for whom life holds no joy. He struggles to reconcile the wild primeval wolf and the rational man within himself without surrendering to the bourgeois values he despises. His life changes dramatically when he meets a woman who is his opposite, the carefree and elusive Hermine. The tale of the Steppenwolf culminates in the surreal Magic Theater—for mad men only. Steppenwolf is Hesse's best-known and most autobiographical work. With its blend of Eastern mysticism and Western culture, it is one of literature's most poetic evocations of the soul's journey to liberation. Originally published in English in 1929, the novel's wisdom continues to speak to our souls and marks it as a classic of modern literature.
