About Siggy Simon Jr, the author of Space Highways

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 Space Highways (More about the SpaceHighways series).

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 into 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others stayed as micro-stories or simple sagas… If you want to read some of my other works, take a look at my (utterly outdated) blog Un·Tales (This blog is now deleted… When time is to spare, I will upload my old stories either to Medium, Wattpad or similar).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 ^_^
