Joshua P. Aguayo

Goodreads Author

in Quito, Ecuador


Member Since
December 2015


Psychoanalyst by profession, Joshua Aguayo was born in Quito, Ecuador. Since his very youth, he showed an interest in science fiction and high fantasy. His passion for elves and warp drives would eventually breed together with the traditionally grim artstyle of his latin american upbringing into an amalgam that carved itself a home in the neon-lit streets of the cyberpunk genre.

He also enjoys watching TV shows for little girls.

I was a kid, and I had written this story out of one of the games I used to play. I spent a lot of my time as a kid home alone, so I had to learn to play on my own, and the way I played was by role-playing an impromptu adventure that I made up as I went. I liked one of these adventure very much so I wrote it and showed it to one of my teachers the next day, and she asked what inspired me to write it. I think that to this day, fifteen or so years later, the answer remains the same: "I don't know, I just go around and imagine silly things out of normal things when I'm bored." Well, my process is a bit more refined now, but it's the same at its core. :3(less)

I liked the book very much! I definitely understand why a lot of people feel like the series picks up in this book. Jim has always been a great inspiration for me as a writer, so I'll get to the next one in the series as soon as I can.
