About | In This Future Or The Next





My name is Leon de la Garza, I’m an aspiring writer from Mexico.

I’ve been a fan of Science Fiction for a while now. I enjoy every type of media that involves it, movies, books, games, anything!

The definition I like most of science fiction is the one given by Rod Serling, “Fantasy is the impossible made probable. Science fiction is the improbable made possible”. It’s a short definition but one that implies a whole many things. Is it probable that we will meet intelligent life from other planets? Maybe not, but it’s possible. Is it probable that we will solve the problem of world hunger? I don’t know enough to give an accurate answer, but it’s possible!

Science fiction gives us hope. Hope for a better tomorrow, hope for humanity to unite and work together to create new exciting things, to make an effort to make people’s lives better. Hope that maybe one day, we will gain enough knowledge to solve the great mysteries of our time. Science fiction shows us progress, motivation to feed our innate curiosity, to explore outer space and other planets, to innovate on ideas previously unexplored.

In the end, science fiction is about people. About our desires for the future and our hopes for our children.

I created this blog as an excercise to improve my writing, I will be posting short stories so I welcome your feedback, and I hope you enjoy them.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Hi I love your sci fi stories man , I would be glad if you could do more stories that has mindfuck in it you know like a twisted plot..

    Btw do you know Mass Effect?

  2. Your short stories are some of the best I have ever read. Your ability to capture so much emotion in so few lines is amazing.
    Have you ever thought of writing a short book, or a collection of short stories? I would gladly buy a copy.

    1. Hi James,

      Thank you for the kind words!

      I have thought of self-publishing a book with short stories on it, I’m actually working on a few short stories to have enough to fill a book. You can see which ones I’m working on in the Upcoming category.

  3. Just felt the need to say that I really enjoy your writing. Your really short stories are quite impressive, you capture a lot of emotion and wonder in just a few short paragraphs!

  4. Invitation to publish on Jungle age

    Hi Leon
    I’m Edmond, the co-founder of Jungle age, a startup website dedicated to short story publishing. We are building Jungle age as a community for short story writers and in the future, a platform where writers can sell stories as well.

    Your story “Planet Hopping” and other works as well, really impressed me, and I’m wondering if you’d like to cross-publish it on our site. You could gain additional readership & comments, and be 1 of the very first members of the community.

    I attached a link to our site’s sci-fi genre for your reference:

    If any queries or feedbacks, welcome to contact me via Edmond.HE@jungleage.com. I am always open to discussion about literature and website development.

    Sincerely thanks a lot for your attention,
