Suspense in 'The return of the Moon Man'

More than suspense for this short story we can speak of elements of curiosity and surprise.From the title and the beginning 'A.D.2500' the reader expects a Science Fiction story,.but very soon they understand that it is a mixture of various styles and genres, with a strong accent on a type of folk tale with elements of nonsense.

The section of Gran and the Moon with the narrator as privileged observer arouses curiosity and tension towards the possible developments - but soon the situation evolves into anti-climax and irony.
