Being in front of that corpse, from that afternoon when I was with my father in the crematorium, putting my hand on his chest and being the last one who was in dialogue with him, and then I needed a way to be able to contain that, “he said

Antonio Malpica talks about “Dust”
The writer Antonio Malpica arrived at the Los Mochis International Book Fair to present his novel “Dust”, where he tells the story of humans enslaved by an extraterrestrial race in a dystopian future where there are human beings who live in the subsoil of the planet Gibeon.
To comment on this novel, Malpica was accompanied by the writer Alfonso Orejel, who assured that this novel is a vindication of the simple things that give meaning to our lives from a science fiction narrative.
“Dust, gives us a big slap in the face, it is the portrait of the future that we dream of, which has not been a reality, it has not been what we dreamed of. It’s a very bleak vision of the future,” she said.
Dust is the precise and inconsiderate portrait of a youth that is less innocent and increasingly committed and concerned with generating a change that few writers have dared to speak of before.
For his part, Malpica said that Polvo is the story of an improbable future. It has a fantastic cut, it is speculation and it has that flavor of the distant, of the improbable. And seeks the appreciation of human culture, what makes us human, beyond what we have under the skin.
The characters in Polvo live enslaved by an alien race that forces them to produce energy. The characters in this novel are dynamic, they do not resist change. Lavinia, the protagonist, is sensible and even-tempered and is willing to change her routine to restore human dignity and freedom to the inhabitants.

The only thing they own is what they wear and the relationships they can enter into as a society, ”he details.
