By Juan B. Gutierrez. «Extreme Conditions is a hyperfiction that inaugurates the genre in Spanish,
drawing on a long tradition of grim futuristic science-fiction. The novel integrates
text and image in a hypertext whose organizing principle is time and which has a marked social dimension, with themes such as technology and power, racism and
pollution... Time travel is tricky, and so is the attempt to change the course of
history. But Gutiérrez is not a determinist. He offers a circular array
of events that emphasize the often casual connections between moments.»
