About the SpaceHighway universe
I started to develop the SpaceHighway universe in 2004. At the same time, I started working on the bases of the main series.
About the SpaceHighway series
SpaceHighway: The Awakened is a series based on the SpaceHighway universe.
The series follows the protagonist, awakened after more than a thousand years of cryogenization, from his own point of view and discovers the new way of life.
About the author
Influenced by a vast sci-fi collection of books, comics and films, I began to write descriptions of universes of the future trying to find a credible futuristic reality.
I was raised up surrounded by a great amount of reading material, including many science books and, above all, books about space, life, the universe and everything…
Currently studying English Studies —formerly known as English Philology, where I am surrounded by stories, books, literary masterpieces, from the old marvels to the postmodern experimentalist absurdities, which keep on feeding me and drive me to keep developing more and more ideas.
Sadly, the very same studies are robbing me of the time I want to use to keep on working on SpaceHighway.
During various courses we students had to create our own stories and —I can’t avoid it— I write too much… Some of the short stories evolved to true mini-novels, others stayed as micro-stories or simple sagas…
If you want to read some of my other works, take a look at my (utterly outdated) blog Un·Tales (This blog is now deleted… When time is to spare, I will upload my old stories either to Medium, Wattpad or similar).
I always wanted to publish a more detailed biography of myself, but, honestly, it’s boring… Boring for me and the reader… It seems I am not able to write a good, happy biography without over-extending or ending crying…
If, someday, I write a decent biography, I’ll post it here ^_^
