Relativamente ampia raccolta di racconti brevi, opera prima, "24 Racconti" è il frutto pretenzioso dell'attività giovanile dell'autore, focalizzata in particolare sui temi dell'inettitudine alla vita e all' amore, l'incomunicabilità, la solitudine, i meccanismi di repressione socio-individuale, l'inesorabilità della morte e il significato dell'immortalità. Da segnalare, fra gli altri, due testi: "Davanti a una tela di Rembrandt", che indaga il significato della legge e, in senso più ampio, dell'esistenza dell' individuo nel contesto dei suoi simili, e "L'eden", la storia di un'iniziazione e, forse, di una caduta. Altri racconti esemplari: "Il postulante", "Il carceriere" e "Indiani".

O que um senhor solitário assistindo uma garotinha sendo dilacerada por um demônio saltitante, um velho apaixonado e Nikolai, o enfermeiro do hospício Muskov, têm em comum? Nessa antologia, Fábio de Andrade afoga seus leitores em um mar de agonia enquanto os três infelizes protagonistas só conseguem distinguir a vida da morte enquanto o delírio não tiver consumido por completo seus corpos. Dilemas de desespero, amor e horror são expostos da forma mais simples e poética da palavra, trazendo três situações em que ele deixa na mão do leitor decidir: A tristeza é causa ou consequência? Deixem que José de Alencar, o enfermeiro Nikolai e o velho marido de Lúcia lhe mostrem o real significado da melancolia em momentos que convergem no sentimento mais antigo e verdadeiro que a raça humana possui: o medo.
