Es interesante la forma de pensar de los rusos: en vez de trasladar el UFO a una zona militar secreta cercana para estudiarlo con tranquilidad al puro estilo Roswell , ordenan construir una zona militar secreta alrededor del UFO. Yo creo que si cogieron a alguno con vida, y tal como se las gastaba el KGB, el bicho no se iba a ir de rositas. Y esto es precisamente lo que hicieron los extraterrestres de Kapustin Yar. Entre los varios informes secretos que Edwards no pudo ver publicados, se ha conocido uno fundamental. El que se refiere a los astronautas rusos que perdieron la vida en el espacio.

En julio de , los astronautas americanos del Apolo XI, Armstrong, Aldrin y Collins, consiguen el primer alunizaje. Asmstrong pisa por primera vez la Luna. Mientras Aldrin desplegaba el aluminio en forma de pantalla para recoger el viento solar, sobre el horizonte negro aparecieron dos puntos luminosos que se fueron acercando y agrandando hasta definirse como dos naves. Las fotos que hicieron los astronautas aparecieron en la prensa, pero luego fueron censuradas.
Los tres astronautas no fueron capaces de hacer nada. De todos modos, los rusos saben mucho sobre la Luna. Al ocurrir o realizarse artificialmente un terremoto, su masa vibra sin freno alguno externo hasta que las oscilaciones no se liberen solas.

El Mayor, as he was called by the inmates, narrates for us first-hand the unfair plight that many of his fellow Paisas, Chicano inmates, are suffering, and the impact of incarceration on working class families of color in America. Ralph Inzunza tells a complex, semi-autobiographical tale of a college educated, Mexican American former politician who spent a two-year-jail term with other Mexican Americans, Paisas—short for Paisano—who are doing much longer-jail time for non-violent crimes.
Next, he describes the prison bureaucracy, which created a massive set of rules to protect itself, dominate, and dehumanize the imprisoned population, but keenly aware that will spend as long, if not longer time in the prison system than the inmates. The Mayor is touched, not by the dehumanizing brutality of the imprisonment, but by the dichotomic views of the prisoners whose truncated lives stopped when they entered jail and their hopes and dreams to reiniate it again are to begin one or two decades into the future, at the time of their release.
So, their present is their nightmare; they make themselves numb to their existence for it is immaterial, worthless, hopeless. Dique Dominican. By Ayendy Bonifacio. His story takes us back to his childhood in a small farm town near Juncalito, about kilometers north of Santo Domingo, records his life in his hood and his move to Ohio in order to continue with his studies. As the author illustrates his family dynamics, the reality of his community, and his attempt to negotiate his way between English and Spanish, sharing with us, at the same time, his personal trajectory, ambitions, and reflections, Ayendy Bonifacio always keeps his own lucidity in front of pain, discrimination, and violence.
Never overstated, his account is like a whisper which, however, forcefully demands to be heard. It makes room for us, allowing us comfort. Or it proscribes us, sending us into the vertigo of exile. In Dique Dominican , [Bonifacio] gets lost and found as he navigates the interstices where words struggle for meaning. A courageous, Babel-like journey! Italian Daze. The book opens with a catalog of Italian foods, cultural actors, heroes and villains, etc. Next come four parts reviewing early loves, travels with an Italian American wife, and subsequent encounters. Depicting key Italian locales, the book includes some of the most acute Italian paradoxes, including Fascism, the Holocaust, the mafia, possible afro-phobia, and recent turns in Italian politics.
Crossing the border between short story collection and novel, this book portrays the evolution of the protagonist, Ben, a young and confused Jewish American, through his interactions with friends, lovers, and others on and beyond the San Diego-Tijuana crossing point. Lines on the Border depicts failed romances, repeated journeys south, moments of colonial and sexual exploitation, of repeated errors and re-adjustments, in an uneven search for genuine contact and understanding. Written with humor, irony and a feel for border pain, Lines is a gift for fiction lovers and those interested in Mexican border themes long before the current deportation raids and talks of building a wall.
His new book captures the melancholic, magical moments that borders create. Salvadoran L. Garcia , Distinguished Prof. The One of a Kind. By David Montoya. Edited by Donald Elder. David Montoya, a lifelong resident of New Mexico, certainly falls into that category. After a relatively uneventful childhood spent in northern New Mexico, his life changed dramatically at the age of eleven when his family relocated to the eastern part of the state.
For the first time in his life, he faced overt and often violent hostility because of his ethnicity. Refusing to accept the discriminatory attitudes prevalent at the time simply, David decided instead to live life on his terms. Facing numerous obstacles along the way—including a period of incarceration in the New Mexico State Penitentiary—David managed to become a skilled craftsman and respected member of the community of Portales, New Mexico. Supported by his family and sustained by his faith, David Montoya stands as an example of how an American citizen can help to overcome prejudice and help move the nation closer to a true equality for all.

Chelo fled Cuba in search of freedom in Born in a small village near Havana in , she married Adolfo Llano in The couple resided in Artemisa, the cradle of the Cuban Revolution of They came in contact with some of its most prominent leaders and endured the cruel communist tyranny, which ended their prosperity and cut short their bliss. The Llanos left the island empty-handed. It would have been easier to be a fake revolutionary like Fidel Castro—who used deception and wielded a gun to suppress the free will of his people—than be a real fighter and do what she did day after day.
Her life stood out as a monument to Cuban tenacity. History books did not record the events because she had lacked political ambitions and had not tortured or killed anyone. Yet, her anonymity would have been an irreparable loss. This book is highly recommended. Almeida has a fantastic story to tell about Creation and the first spoken word of God.

Edited by Henry Tarco-Carrera. ISBN: , 6" x 9" Los narradores ecuatorianos se aventuran a explorar en estos cuentos una manera de exteriorizar por medio de sus palabras lo que se siente al vivir en los espacios de otros. Cuentos migrantes is an unimpressive title for such magnificent collection of short stories by seasoned writers.
The stories do not have a simple remit as it might appear; these are no forthright stories. Instead, they each take one aspect of the migrant experience and provide a whole new discernment of lives in a new country. After all, the heart holds a lot of representational weight. The characters identified by their status or gender the woman, the husband , a clear set of conflicting rules to obey from both the old and new country, the places and times, people and events spotlight the tender underbelly of the human condition in all its glory and despair on these varied stages of fiction that emerge from the dark reality of migrant life.
Without a doubt, Henry Tarco Carrera has rendered onto us an impressive and exceptional collection of tales. Cuentos del norte. Historias del sur. The stories are humanely touching; the narrative is inexplicably gripping and riveting as they relate immigrants attempting to redefine themselves as they confront a new promised land replete of new challenges, abject poverty, and desperation.

Coconut Versus. By Daniel Jose Ruiz. ISBN: pages. Everyone calls Miguel Reyes a coconut, brown on the outside and white on the inside. His family try to teach him what it means to be a Reyes and to understand manhood and its value within a rural life. He has no real friends as no one there seems to understand how someone could be brown without being poor. He spends most of his time alone or playing video games with his little brother Angel, yet Angel is already starting to excel past Miguel in all areas in which children are judged.
Miguel falls in love for the first time, and he falls in love with a sport that provides an outlet for his growing anger, but then his growing anger is part of the problem.

The story, set in , is centered on the canny, spirited and charming Los Angeles Times reporter, Alejandra Marisol.
Alejandra displays relentless tenacity as she delves into the bowels of corrupt city politics, shady real-estate transactions, and an overbearing Archdiocese to fish out the truth surrounding unspeakable crimes using the art of deduction and forensic science. While the story clearly demonstrates that the present is inextricably tied to the past, it does not let us forget that ordinary people have the ability to override the power of history to shape destiny.
Water is life and has no borders, penetrating our bones and teeth to give us clues on where we were born and where we ended our path. Five dead bodies in the back of a pickup truck, a cardinal with interests beyond the church, a real estate developer with ties to the Archdiocese, a possible metaphor with no known meaning, all proof that nothing was clear.
Nieto is a new refreshing voice in this predominantly Anglo male genre. Her heroine is a feisty Chicana LA Times reporter that loves her Revlon lipstick, finds solace in her blue VW bug named Azulita, and is not afraid to confront the big boys that run the City of Angels like their own private palm-laden country club.

It was a killing field for hundreds of unarmed men, women and children. It was a preplanned and organized ambush that felled men, women and child victims in open fields with no cover.
It is representative of a conflict frozen in time; a conflict that has no international outrage to push for a solution. This was only the beginning of years of attacks and terror.

These are gritty tales of real people who we are too often invisibilized.

Families must live without running water or electricity as they attempt to survive on the edge of the Salton Sea, a toxic lake where dead fish rot and poisons pollute the shore. The reality of living in the shanty wastelands of the affluent jewel cities of southern California threatens to destroy two young men living in desperate poverty and abandonment.
