Navarrese editor Alberto Rodríguez received a UPC Science-Fiction Award
Barcelona, January 26. According to the institution informed.
Through YouTube, the handover ceremony could be followed up, within the framework of the “50 Years of Conscientious Knowledge” conference, where it was confirmed that this year’s participation record was broken, as 136 works were submitted in a competition awarding it with 2000 euros to the winner.
Likewise, the work will be published in digital and paper format, in partnership with UPC and the publishing house Apache Libros, which specializes in publishing science fiction and horror books and illustrations.
Alberto Rodriguez described his book as a “tragic science fiction comedy with pre-apocalyptic overtones”, in which he recounts that “the keys to heaven have been lost and that God has remained locked inside.”
At that moment, “the situation on the ground is getting out of control, and the yoga teacher and promotional material seller, who are actually death and the Devil, are the only ones who can or will not return everything to normal.”
For its author, “Beyond the entertainment of imagining delusional and impossible situations, the novel invites us to contemplate some human relationships such as friendship, a married couple or family.”
Rodriguez was born in Pamplona in 1982 and founded the cultural magazine “El Mono”, where he writes and draws, and since 2017 has been the co-director of the Navarra Comedy Show, where he has supervised more than 200 exhibitions.
Likewise, he has developed a long career as a guitarist in various bands of “Underground” in Navarre such as Dead Flowers, Ostrovandals, Black Lagoon, Juarez or Cantina Pizarro.
The works of “Péndulo” by Uruguayan writer Carlos Rehermann and “Otro dios caprichoso” by Argentine Sergio Gaut Phil Hartmann received a mention from the jury, while the UPC was mentioned to members of the university community about “L” Epíleg, by Berta Vito, sophomore with an engineering degree Computer.
On the other hand, the jury mentioned the works of “Noctópolis” by David Luna; “Operación Místico” by Ardella Martin and “Incube” Blanca Pavon.
The jury consisted of Lluís Anglada, Miquel Barceló, Josep Casanovas, Jordi José and Manuel Moreno. EFE
