Welcome to my personal page/blog. Grab a front row seat. Coffee is brewing. I can boil some tea or hot cocoa, if you prefer. ‘Speculative Tertulia’ is the name of my personal blog. You must be wondering: who is this Albizu fellow? Why did he start a blog? And what will he be blogging about?

But where are my manners? I am sorry, allow me to properly introduce myself. Ingmar Albizu is the alias for this aspiring genre writer. And when I said aspiring what I truly mean is unpublished and many times rejected. Yes, I admit, the slush pile and me are intimate. But who among us has not feel its pull? I have created this blog with the desire to discuss, debate and further explore my many interests. But let me warn you, this blog is uninhibited; nothing is off limits. Click at your own peril. Of course, there will be main topics such as science fiction, anime, martial arts, urban astronomy, anthropology, books, etc., as well  as other pop culture themes.

You are all cordially invited. Your comments and opinions are strongly encouraged. So feel free to disagree with me and put me in my place. I can take it. Because despite a ‘tertulia’ being by definition a gathering of like-minded persons, I am also a firm believer too much affinity can be boring. And no one likes boring, specially from a writer. So grab your drink of choice and join me in this gathering of minds. Let me hear your voice. Don’t be shy. Since we are all consenting adults in here, please share your wisdom with me. Just bring an open mind. And marshmallows. Marshmallows are always good. I trust we can connect and interact.

In conclusion: let’s grok each other!
