Author: Alberto Fernández Carbajal

Alberto Fernández Carbajal (he/him) is a gay lecturer and writer from the Principality of Asturias (in North-Western Spain). He lectures English Literature at the University of Roehampton, in South-West London, where he researches colonial, postcolonial, queer, and diasporas literatures and cultures, with a recent focus on Islam. His creative writing has been published by the likes of the sadly defunct The View from Here and the ezine Gay Flash Fiction. He is interested in the mundane, the bizarre, and the tender, always searching for ways of approaching the familiar in an unusual way and the mundane in an extraordinary manner. He likes loose ends, ambiguity, and the pull of the unseen. He lives in the outskirts of Todmorden, in the border between Yorkshire and Lancashire, with his partner, their son, their 3 cats and (very soon) a whippet puppy.
