Las Trinas Cuadras is an unpublished autobiography written by Simarella Firaldini a few years before her death in 2069. My friend Giglianizia Vercingral d'Aldoni, a professor of archeology specialized in paleocybernetics, rescued the text and asked me to edit it and publish it. I refused. The insurmountable task would distract me from my academic, literary and publishing responsibilities. She gave me a hard copy and insisted perseveringly for several weeks...
Reluctantly, I grabbed the text and looked randomly at a few pages. I read a few paragraphs, then a few pages. I became intrigued and began to read it from the beginning. When I reached the second half of the narrative, my eyes opened. Written more than eight centuries ago, the script reveals the origin of our current penuries. Simarella did it through voices from other times. Giglianizia did not bother to tell me that.
I initiated my editorial and creative work with apprehension. Honestly, I did not do much. I changed the narrator's voice from first person to third person to give the book certain seriousness and to increase the impression of objectivity. I also added a few metaphors to brighten the narration and corrected some archaisms. Other than that, I left the text as it was, keeping Simarella's memories and modesty. Therefore, I consider myself a co-author and not an author.

A DICTIONARY OF SELECTED INVENTED WORDS FROM HIS NOVELS
In the Lexinary, the author defines more than 3,500 words of the dozens of thousands he has invented in his novels. When you read the Lexinary you immerse yourself in a different world... realizing that many emotions, phenomena or circumstances of our world that until now have not yet been named. To read the Lexinary is to get a glimpse of the author's own interpretations of his neologisms.
In this work without precedents, we can observe our universe and our own lives with new eyes. The definitions are sometimes mini or microstories that illustrate feelings, dimensions, aversions and even the "obviousness" that no one else has dared to describe or define.
Reading randomly a handful of definitions is enough to understand the gracefulness and depth of his invented language.
The author's own narrative style inaugurated in Las Primas Segundas is displayed here again. This book is a voyage through the world of his invented words. Each paragraph invites you to reflect, to encounter ourselves with old, new words and to give them a meaning the own narrative may suggest or some other definition.
Like Las Primas Segundas, Las Segundas Trinas is a novel made of interwoven short stories using a fine thread. Loyal to his unique writing style, Javier Enriquez Serralde takes us into a surrealistic world of his own creation.
Reading is a challenge, even a delirious challenge but with depth and pressure that melts the inevitable introspection through times that have not happened or that have passed.
Las Primas Segundas is definitely a postmodern novel. It is filled with neologisms, with feverish metaphors, with novel ideas. The book is composed of short stories sutured with invisible stitches. The reading will be definitely slow at the beginning, until you become accustomed to the provocative flow. An invitation that stimulates a continuous flow of ideas and interpretations.
A "translation" of each neologism will be different after each reflection and re-reflection. Yet, the context of the narrative carries a poetic rhythm, a virgin style, a cauldron of temperamental and fluctuating terms. To read this work is to become immersed in a neo-surrealist world, in a new universe. The novel is, literally, novel.
