a little biography of RQ
Roberto Quaglia came into this world not being able to return to the other. So he decided
to settle down here. In the beginning he grew up not forgetting to gain the correct
stature and then lose his surplus quantity of hair. But before all this he managed to
occupy his space-time in "varied and various" ways.
First he amused himself with photography and the end-product of his researches was
published, unexpectedly, in major European magazines and rashly shown in various
exhibitions. Then, tired of giving excessive significance to a few square centimetres of
emulsion-developed paper, he swore allegiance to the theatre and the organization of
cultural events, fields in which he has distinguished himself in the city.
One fine day, giving in to an unexpected impulse, he created a series of comic-strips
called "The Planet of the Computers", subsequently published in the Italian
magazines "Bit" and "Microcomputer".
But it was only when he suddenly noticed he was in reality a writer that he finally
noticed he was in reality a writer.
From then onwards, as every writer, he has above all written, neglecting - in his most
obsessive moments - to live, but managing to survive all the same.
Roberto Quaglia is, today, one of the most promising of the Italian science fiction
writers. Without doubt he's the most irreverent and iconoclastic. He has written two
novels, a collection of stories, a television serial and various science fiction plays. He
collaborates as well with noted Italian magazines as a humorous writer.
His texts are powerful in their disrupting, desecrating vein and their cynical modern
black humour, both of which give a distinctive mark to a good part of his writings.
Surprisingly for the author, they have become a cult in various literary circles.
He has written among other things a lot of things.
Roberto Quaglia is one of the most
interesting Italian writers. He writes SF and surrealistic fiction. From '95 to '97 he has
been Counsellor in the city of Genova, Italy.
