Gómez Jimenez, Jorge

Tagged: Author | Editor

(1971-    ) Venezuelan editor, author and poet. He edited the biweekly Magazine La Peña Literaria Cahuakao between 1988 and 1989 and the weekly magazine El Tabloide between 1990 and 1993. He is best known as the editor since 1996 of Letralia, Tierra de Letras, the very first Venezuelan Webzine about culture and literature. In his novel Los títeres ["The Puppetry"] (1991), two teachers discover that they are characters in a novel and make the decision to kill the author and thus gain free will. His story "El eco de ambos" ["Both Echo"] won the Concurso Annual de Cuentos "Poeta Pedro Buznego" by Casa de la Cultura from El Consejo in 1997. This story is set in a future Dystopia with echoes of the past: an employee fascinated by the old things begins to hear the voices of people who lived a century before; he investigates, thus breaking the law.
