Alephi is going to celebrate the December month as the month of Sci.Fi. writers. We ask one small question to the Sci.Fi. writers worldwide…
Salvador Bayarri is a Spanish science fiction author and specialist. With a Ph.D. in Physics, a degree in Philosophy, and a professional career in simulation and virtual reality, he writes screenplays (like The Owl in Daylight, a biopic about Philip K. Dick), short stories and novels like his Trilogy of the Spheres. He has been a finalist in the first Cificom Award for Artificial Intelligence stories (published in the “El abismo mecánico” anthology) and finalist in the Teatronika Award for robot-based screenplays. A blogger and frequent speaker at Hispacon/Eurocon and other venues, he likes to mix historical, biographical, philosophical and scientific aspects in speculative fiction.
Alephi : Which sci.fi. book do you like?
Salvador Bayarri : I would like to mention one of my most beloved classics, “Solaris” (by Polish author Stanislaw Lem). In this novel Lem combined his philosophical speculation about the problem of recognizing and communicating with alien intelligences (a very contemporary topic) with one of the most amazing love stories ever written.
Lem masters the description of the most eerie creations of an unknowable being and matches them with the parallel creations of our own troubled minds.
