About this author

Agustín Fest estudió sistemas computacionales, después lo abandonó para estudiar Letras Inglesas en la UNAM FFyL. Trabajó en publicidad durante casi diez años, en comerciales de televisión y ha publicado en diversas revistas casi por casualidad: Penthouse México, Venga!, ¿Dónde ir? y en el suplemento cultural de Guardagujas, en La Jornada de Aguascalientes. Ha trabajado, durante años, en su blog llamado Árbol de los Mil Nombres (arbol.milnombres.net) el cual ahora se llama árbol 2:17 (http://arbol217.com), donde publica novelas inéditas, cuentos, minificciones y la crónica de su cacto come-gatos, come-niños. Durante un tiempo metió su cuchara en un taller en línea de ficción llamado Metatextos (metatextos.com) y fue co-creador de un blog ll ...more


Hay buenas razones, además del dinero, por las cuales las series de televisión gringas dividen sus etapas por temporadas: un cambio al arco global de la historia, preparar el siguiente, invitar a los espectadores a extrañar a los personajes, el descanso del equipo de producción, entre otras. Por la misma razón dividí, en su momento, Big-Blogger en temporadas: un descanso sano para los colaborad...

“Hablamos del olvido, sí, y también hablamos de como no te olvido.”
Agustín Fest

“No son prositutas, son las tontitas del pueblo que uno se coge".”
Agustín Fest

“Some of these guys will go on walking long after the laws of biochemistry and handicapping have gone by the boards. There was a guy last year that crawled for two miles at four miles an hour after both of his feet cramped up at the same time, you remember reading about that? Look at Olson, he's worn out but he keeps going. That goddam Barkovitch is running on high-octane hate and he just keeps going and he's as fresh as a daisy. I don't think I can do that. I'm not tired -not really tired- yet. But I will be." The scar stood out on the side of his haggard face as he looked ahead into the darkness "And I think... when I get tired enough... I think I'll just sit down”
Stephen King, The Long Walk

“Mil cosas solicitan a la vez nuestra atención y ninguna de ellas logra retenernos; así la vida se nos vuelve arena entre los dedos y las horas humo en el cerebro.”
Octavio Paz Solórzano

“If you have never wept bitter tears because a wonderful story has come to an end and you must take your leave of the characters with whom you have shared so many adventures, whom you have loved and admired, for whom you have hoped and feared, and without whose company life seems empty and meaningless.

If such things have not been part of your own experience, you probably won't understand what Bastian did next.”
Michael Ende, The Neverending Story

“People never seemed to notice that, by saving time, they were losing something else. No one cared to admit that life was becoming ever poorer, bleaker and more monotonous. The ones who felt this most keenly were the children, because no one had time for them any more. But time is life itself, and life resides in the human heart. And the more people saved, the less they had.”
Michael Ende, Momo

“There were doors that looked like large keyholes, others that resembled the entrances to caves, there were golden doors, some were padded and some were studded with nails, some were paper-thin and others as thick as the doors of treasure houses; there was one that looked like a giant's mouth and another that had to be opened like a drawbridge, one that suggested a big ear and one that was made of gingerbread, one that was shaped like an oven door, and one that had to be unbuttoned.”
Michael Ende, The Neverending Story

Jajaja. Es una de las historias incluidas en "La sonrisa del Quetzalcoatli", pero fíjate que llevo un rato trabajándola por fuerita y me parece que voy a sacar una nueva edición de redacción bien pulidita y breves capítulos nuevos. :)
