The patience

The passing of time is something fascinating. It's relative, stretchable depending on the point of view. A second can be measured perfectly in an atomic clock but our mind doesn't perceive it always the same. It relies on the feelings of the moment, on what we do, on the circumstances that surround us. From this flexible perception of the passing of time is where I've gotten the inspiration for the short story in this post.

The debt's trail

A thieve arrives to a certain city searching for a guy who betrayed him. Is a debt made of gold, blood and many explanations, although it won't be exactly that what the main character will get at the end of this narration told in twenty four microstories.
Published in a not-too-regular fashion through the months of july, august and september of 2015, they tell a small story where crime, ambition and magic have room. And since writing this series has been quite interesting for me, possibly I'll base on it to, in a hopefully near future, make a longer fiction.
The accompanying illustration to this post is from the studio Feng Zhu Design, and I chose it because it evokes a bit the city in which the action of this sum of microfictions is located.

The burden of the heart, by Rosa Montero


Maybe El peso del corazón (roughly translated as The burden of the heart) won't look as the most proper title for a detective and futuristic work. Even so, from this last kind is what the most recent book by Rosa Montero partly pretends to be. The experienced author has taken up again her detective android, Bruna Husky, and put her in a story seasoned with social and environmental criticism. This way, with the action located again in that supposed Earth in a century from now, Montero deepens in the evils of that world to come and... The same defects which weighed down Husky's first adventure.
