»En Crania, Adalber Salas Hernández hace el registro del cráneo como una muestra geológica. Este es un libro-museo con una exposición sobre la bóveda craneal. En muchos de sus poemas en prosa se busca definir qué es esa estructura y desplegar su mitología. Sería acertado definir Crania como un mapa conceptual que es a la vez el despliegue de varios diagramas/esculturas/performances, en los cuales a veces se acentúa una vertiente narrativa y documental. Diversos fragmentos podrían incluirse sin problemas en una antología de minicuentos. Esa multiplicidad hace que el libro sea arriesgado y notable, en la tradición editorial de Letra Muerta«.

“In Crania, Adalber Salas Hernández writes about the skull as a geological sample. This is a book-museum with an exhibition about the cranial vault. In many of his prose poems, the author seeks to define what that structure is and to address its mythology. It would be accurate to define Crania as a conceptual map that is at the same time the display of several diagrams/sculptures/performances, in which narrative and documentary aspects are sometimes accentuated. Several fragments could easily be included in an anthology of flash fiction. That variety makes the book bold and noteworthy, in the Letra Muerta editorial tradition.”
