Once upon a time: fairy Carabosse cuts the navel cord of a new born baby called Anastasia. “Too late,” she says, “A needle will sting her hand at sixteen and she will die.” The other fairies start to cry: Nobody deserves to sleep for a hundred years... A hundred years! Sleeping! Even though the fairies can’t inhibit the curse they find a way for the girl to bear those hundred years: bestow onto her the ability to travel far lands in her dreams.

Midnight Horror Stories: The Last Ferry
Galip Dursun

I remembered a game as I was waiting in the passenger lounge for the ferry to arrive just a few minutes ago. A game we used to play at home when I was young, in my country that is very far away from here, a relic from the distant past; I don’t even remember how we used to play it. The kind of game that makes me feel a thousand times lonelier than I already am among the crowd waiting to get on the ferry.

Portrait of Martín Zapater (1797)

Martín Zapater y Clavería, born in Zaragoza on November 12th 1747, came from a family of modest merchants and was taken in to live with a well-to-do aunt, Juana Faguás, and her daughter, Joaquina de Alduy. He studied with Goya in the Escuelas Pías school in Zaragoza from 1752 to 1757 and a friendship arose between them which was to last until the death of Zapater in 1803.
