Sobre o autor

Joel Puga nasceu na cidade portuguesa de Viana do Castelo em 1983. Entrou em contacto muito cedo com a fantasia e a ficção científica, principalmente graças a séries e filmes dobrados transmitidos por canais espanhóis. Assim que aprendeu a ler, enveredou pela literatura de género, começando a aventura com os livros de Júlio Verne. Foi nesta altura que produziu as suas primeiras histórias, geralmente passadas nos universos de outros autores, cuja leitura estava reservada a familiares e amigos. Em 2001, mudou-se para Braga para prosseguir os estudos, altura em que decidiu que a sua escrita devia ser mais do que um hobby privado. Isso valeu-lhe a publicação em várias antologias e fanzines portuguesas abordando diversos sub-géneros da ficção especulativa. Vive, hoje, em Braga, onde divide o seu tempo entre o emprego como engenheiro informático, a escrita e a leitura. Joel Puga was born in the Portuguese city of Viana do Castelo in 1983.

As soon as he learned how to read, he got into genre literature; starting his adventure with Julio Verne’s books. It was during this time that he produced his first stories, generally using other author's universes as a backdrop, the reading of which was reserved to family and friends. In 2001, he moved to Braga to follow his studies, a time in which he decided his writings should be more than a private hobby. This granted him several publications in Portuguese anthologies and fanzines of various sub-genres of speculative fiction. Today, he lives in Braga, where he divides his time between his job as a computer engineer, as well as writing and reading.

Story

The day began like any other in the village of Lorindel. Shepherds gathered their sheep, preparing to take them up to the pastures in the mountains foothills. Farmers drove oxen toward the fields, as it was plowing season. The barkeep rolled wine barrels from the warehouse to the tavern, knowing that his neighbors would eventually show up there to forget the hardships of their daily lives.

However, these routines were soon interrupted. From Grunwald forest, which began in the vicinity of the village, appeared a man that none of the villagers had seen before.

Long, dirty and matted hair tumbled down his back, partially covering the stained and filthy dark green habit he wore. Mud and dust covered his face and hands, and his lips were contorted in a huge, creepy smile that could be seen at a distance.

The first villagers who spotted him abandoned their chores and called their neighbors and family. Before long, the whole village had gathered in front of the stranger. But no one dared approach him.

Finally, the man said, with a sardonic smile on his lips:

People of Lorindel, call the minstrels, cover the streets in petals and bring your best food, because you are about to receive the glorious race of rats.

He held out his arms. Behind him, the undergrowth of the forest trembled and hissed. From it emerged hundreds of huge black rats that ran straight toward the village. Some didn't even bother to bypass their master, instead clambering over him or passing through the tears in his habit as he laughed maniacally.
