Marcos Muelas (Murcia, 1979) presents his first novel this Friday, ‘El Eterno descalzo (Caligrama), at 7:00 p.m., in the Cultural Area Room of El Corte Inglés (Gran Vía Escultor Salzillo, first floor). José Antonio Molina, Professor of Ancient History at the University of Murcia, and Manuel Sevilla, Professor of Translation at the University of Murcia, will take part in the event. Muelas is a passionate reader of historical, fantastic and horror novels. In childhood he focused his attention on the world of comics and war literature, which made him delve into the period of World War II. His creative concern prompted him to embark on the creation of his first novel, ‘El Eterno descalzo’, a fusion of literary styles that turns documented history from the earliest times to the present stage.
‘The Eternal Barefoot’ is, says the writer, «a fantastic novel with a clear historical component inspired by faithfully documented real events. It is the first volume of a series. A river novel that presents a general story in which a large cast of characters is immersed. It tells «how the Eternals, winged beings born in the bowels of the Palace of the Winds, are the protagonists of the events that have marked our existence, and the generators of power in the shadows with a plan created millennia ago. An army of subjugated Amazons, stone-armored giants, humans with superhuman gifts…plunge the reader into a web of conspiracies as old as time.”
