Miguel Farah's flash fiction.

I have always enjoyed reading; science-fiction, in particular, is my favorite literary genre. Recently, the muses decided to illuminate me, so I have begun writing fiction, in addition to the manuals, monographs and reference books I've done over the years. I've purposefuly started with flash fiction, because this allows me to keep strictly focused on each story's central concept, which is what I'm most interested in; after all, I write to take out the ideas that are wandering around inside my brain and put them on paper byte sequences.

So far, I've written all of my flash fiction in English; this is because I've been publishing it initially in several of Reddit's subreddits, where that's the official language. There's nothing, however, to inhibit me from writing something in Spanish in the future (or, except for available time, from translating what I've already written).
