Ever since I remember I have loved books. My mother… excuse me, Santa Claus and the Three Magic Kings used to give me classic books for the holidays, such as The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Treasure Island, Starship Troopers, etc. Some were books I adored, others (Starship Troopers) I didn’t bother to read until way later, when I was at college… and also loved. However, it wasn’t until a New York trip in which my cousin lent me his copy of Jurassic Park (the movie hit theaters that summer, and he wanted me to read it before we went to see Spielberg’s take) that I began my fandom literary stage, beginning with Michael Crichton.
A few years later, I decided to take on writing.
So here I am, at the beginning of the 21st century, using the tools that communications technology places in our hands, tools that now allow every person on the planet with an internet connection instant visibility with thousands others. Not exactly the future of Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001 (or even Zemeckis’ Back to the Future II‘s), but a pretty cool one. And one with enormous potential.
