Estos relatos tempranos de Gabriel García Márquez fueron escritos y publicados entre 1947 y 1955, aunque, como libro, Ojos de perro azul no aparecería hasta 1974, cuando el escritor ya había publicado otros dos libros de relatos y cuatro novelas, de las que l. a. última, Cien años de soledad, le proporcionaría su primer gran éxito internacional.
En este libro se incluye su primer cuento célebre, el Monólogo de Isabel viendo llover en Macondo, escenario de sus obras posteriores. El personaje de Isabel reaparecerá en su primera novela, y el tema de los angeles lluvia cayendo interminablemente, en su own versión del diluvio common, acabaría integrándose clever y flexiblemente en Cien años de soledad.

But searching the skies for Camlantis? ’ ‘The city is up there,’ insisted Amelia. ‘If the ruins of Camlantis were at an altitude we could reach, someone would have sighted them. Circle knows, the jack cloudies are as bad as their maritime counterparts with their superstitions and their rituals and their cant. It wouldn’t take much to add a story of a ghostly land ripped out in a floatquake to their tall tales of angels gliding around their airships and dark round stats of unknown origin whistling past their ears.
The officer laughed with contempt. ‘The caliph has lived two-score of your miserable lifetimes and if the hundred prophets be blessed, he shall live two-score more. ’ Amelia looked at Mombiko and understanding flashed between them. Mombiko would never again be a slave, and Amelia was jiggered if she would be used as a breeder, or allow herself to be handed over to a Cassarabian torture-sculptor to twist and mutate her bones until she was left stretched out like a human oak tree in the caliph’s scented punishment gardens.
