The complex dynamics of space and time present in some of the stories of Adolfo BioyCasares have their roots in the interstitial that separates the genres of fantasy and neo-fantasy, andmost of all in the suggestion of ontological ideas and doubts that characterise the latter. Deeply rootedin the unknown land of a reality that is full of doubts, the literature of Bioy Casares seeks to restore,through the multiple games of fiction, the perception and perceptions of a continuous changes thatend with generating parallel worlds. The neo-fantastic passes the crucial limit of traditional fantasy,the stable and certain dichotomy between the real and the imaginary, and to do this it relies on thefragile foundations of a reality in full process of deconstruction. The centre of immateriality in whichare born the sinuous spatio-temporal bifurcations that structure stories like “La Trama Celeste” ofBioy Cesares or “El jardín de senderos que se bifurcan” (1941) of Jorge Luis Borges has its origins in aninstability that is inscribed in the real. Therefore, when during a period of crisis the rules which governa culture become shrouded in doubts and demonstrate their false transparency, the neo-fantasticcan transform itself into a fundamental tool for describing the crucial nature of the destabilisationtaking place: it converts itself into a mimetic process at the structural level.
