If you were a fan in the 70s, this is not news to you:  New book highlights the “untold story” of Gerard K. O’Neill

In the Fall of 1963 I was not quite 5 years old (winter would see that happening), but I was becoming a fan nevertheless.  This Saturday morning broadcast lineup ought to offer some explanation as to why:  Captain Kangaroo at 8, Tennessee Tuxedo and Alvin at 9, then The Jetsons at 10, Fireball XL5 at 10:30 (it premiered in October of 1963 in the US), Dennis the Menace at 11, The Bugs Bunny Show at 11:30, lunch and then The Bullwinkle Show.  How could I NOT become a fan?  (After Bullwinkle it was off to the great outdoors and a cardboard box spaceship!)

Yes, the unthinkable is about to happen: Murderbot must voluntarily speak to humans!

Rojo cochinilla es un libro de relatos con tres historias que cuentan con el nexo común de la alienación social. Tres narraciones en las que el género negro se mezcla con lo surreal y la lucha de clases. Se trata de textos de marcado estilo pulp, cuya brevedad y rapidez los definen, al tiempo que intentan dejar un poso en la conciencia de las personas que se adentren en su lectura.

Alberte Momán Noval (Autor)

Alberte Momán Noval. Ferrol, 1976. Editor, poeta y narrador que se adentra en el formato pulp con una primera novela, ¡Vattene!, que daría lugar a una trilogía, con la intención de experimentar, por medio de ideas recurrentes en su narrativa, con nuevas formas de mostrar, de manera muy personal, su percepción de la realidad. Bajo esta misma premisa, llegaron títulos como El legado extraterrestre, Lapamán o Bondage, donde, por medio de la violencia y las relaciones tortuosas y desgarradoras, se perfilan sendas distopías que representan la degradación social que se manifiesta en nuestras sociedades.
