This chapter focuses on two contemporary editorial projects promoting cultural relations between Spain and Portugal: Minotauro, published by Edições 70, and Confluências, published by Kalandraka. These are the very first Portuguese book series purposefully dedicated to literature written in Spain. The chapter carries out an analysis of both series, taking into account the criteria for title selection as well as the mission statement of each editorial coordinator. By resorting to the polysystem theoretical framework, it argues that Minotauro and Confluências seek to offer an ‘alternative repertoire’ that ranges from more canonical and traditional literature to contemporary narrative. The investigation also stresses the role of cultural producers and mediators (publishers, editors, and critics) in making ‘new’ literary Iberian repertoires accepted in Portugal.

Keywords:   Spanish fiction, Portuguese translation, Translated book series, Polysystem theory, Twenty-first century
