I have the itching for writing from reading and most of my writings are
I am in debt with many writers of short stories and tales, especially english,
american-english, spanish and american-spanish. I could mention many, of
course, but I will Edgar Allan Poe and Jorge Luis Borges like masters I am grateful
to for the exciting and enriching times.
However, I do not include on this page, for the moment being, any short story or
tale of the kind someone would say it is serious work, because what you will find
here will be not serious indeed, for these I am sharing with you on this page so far,
are humour short stories I am translating into english at present, from a book
originally written in spanish and based on real facts. Besides, you will find
also two poems about war, which are serious indeed.
As for the writers I am in debt to for doing things same or very similar or kind of as
I have done I am deeply moved to mention John Steinbeck's Tortilla Flat and
The short reign of Pippin the Fourth. Saying too first one was L'automme en Pekin
by Boris Vian and trying not forget Eduardo Mendoza just not to lose my neck
wherever I be.
Regarding Poets I am happy to have enjoyed I must mention William Blake, Pablo
Neruda, Lorca, some of Irish bards, and why not many others, known or not.
With respect to witticisms I am still astounded and spellbound about how could I
forget Mr. Oscar Wilde.
To finish with, I would like to say that I know a writer must never write minor works,
or at least destroy them before someone could read them. But if it is mere fun one
wants to share with friends as an entretainment, he is obliged to do his best too.
I hope you will enjoy my humour tales and poems.
