In 2018, Bolívar Roblero presented the book Xtabay and others, which takes up the Mayan legend of Xtabay to tell what this mythological woman, demonically beautiful, does with her victims, how and why she selects them, in a literary proposal that mixes fantasy and reality.
Roblero Zúñiga explained, at the time, that he combined in his stories two great passions, literary creation and history. In this way, events such as those of October 2, 1968 in Tlatelolco and June 10, 1971 in San Cosme inhabit his narrative. But the reader will also come across the US invasion of Mexico in 1847; or that unusual snowfall over Mexico City on January 10, 1967, or the fall of the Angel of Independence in the earthquake of July 28, 1957.
