Y ahora, unas palabras de nuestro sponsor: Camel cigarettes
In other words: "In 1975 while the Viking Space orbiter circled Mars, it made an amazing discovery: on the surface of the planet what appears to be the image of a humanoid face that started an intense debate over the existence of intelligent life on that world. A facinating subject and enigmatic like no other."
Thanks to Mexican American science fiction writer Ernest Hogan for the translation!
A self-professed “recombocultural Chicano mutant, known for committing outrageous acts of science fiction, cartooning, and other questionable pursuits,” Ernest Hogan is the author of three novels: Cortez on Jupiter (1990), High Aztech (1992), and Smoking Mirror Blues (2001). His forthcoming short story “The Great Mars-A-Go-Go Mexican Standoff” will be published in the Winter 2010 (Vol. 6, No. 3) issue of Tales of the Talisman.
Meanwhile, feel free to sit back, relax, light up a Camel, and listen to a podcast of "The Rise and Fall of Paco Cohen and the Mariachis of Mars" (mp3, 36 mins.), a novelette written by Ernest Hogan that was published in the April 2001 issue of Analog magazine.
