Traductor de automoción, informática, ingenierías varias, farmacia y otros campos igualmente apasionantes. En su tiempo libre se queja de que todavía no haya llegado la singularidad, pues le falta vida para ver tantas series de TV «imprescindibles» y novelas must. Es aficionado a la buena cerveza, a la ciencia ficción y a la fantasía sucia, a la informática nivel pelea y a describirse a sí mismo en tercera persona. Grinch en sus ratos libres y INTP-A.

La Brigada de Luz by Kameron Hurley
"No sé qué puntuación dar a esta novela. Por una parte, me ha gustado mucho. El estilo directo y sin florituras, la voz protagonista y la historia que está contando, no solo por la crítica al capitalismo o por el concepto en sí de la brigada de luz..." Read more of this review »

Jordi Balcells and 17 other people liked Carlex's review of The Light Brigade:
The Light Brigade by Kameron Hurley
"Two and half stars.

This story has been told a lot of times. Usually there are two aspects in war stories. “The good war”, that is, just for the fun (fun for the reader of course); and the pacifist story that is the case of The Light Brigade. I lov..." Read more of this review »

“Dan ganas de ir más allá de la cópula y fertilizarle todos y cada uno de los huevos que vaya a poner a lo largo de su vida.”
Felicidad Martínez, La mirada extraña

“Atreveos a tocarme, eructos del caos.”
Felicidad Martínez, La mirada extraña

Elena Álvarez Mellado
“La belleza de la disección morfológica reside en que nos permite describir el colectivo infinito de palabras que conforman el español […] como combinaciones hechas sobre un conjunto finito de raíces, prefijos y sufijos. De la misma manera que, en último término, toda la materia que nos rodea no es más que una combinación de protones, neutrones y electrones, las infinitas palabras del castellano pueden ser descritas como combinaciones sobre un conjunto finito de raíces, prefijos y sufijos.”
Elena Álvarez Mellado, Anatomía de la lengua

Terry Pratchett
“The reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money.

Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.

But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that'd still be keeping his feet dry in ten years' time, while the poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet.

This was the Captain Samuel Vimes 'Boots' theory of socioeconomic unfairness.”
Terry Pratchett, Men at Arms: The Play

“Shared pain is lessened.
Shared joy is increased.
Thus we refute entropy.”
