About the Book

De Cero to Zero, a Tale, is not a simple collection of narratives; in essence, it is an intricate warp and weft that invites us to find the skein thread each time we go from one short story to the next. In addition, Edel Romay makes us consider the idea that Reality does not exist without an observer. In other words, reading is, in fact, an act of dialogue with the author. Besides, human Reality (Reality), as Edel considers it, is the boundary between the macro-reality of the universe (REALITY) and the inner nano reality of the atom (Reality). That is, [REALITY (Reality) reality]. And subtly, he guides us to ask ourselves: What is genuinely factual in all that we call Reality? Then, it makes us reflect on the symbiosis that creates itself and recreates itself between author and reader. — I remember; therefore, you exist —you assured me. — I remember; therefore, I live—I replied. — Therefore, you and I exist at this moment.

About the Author

Edel Romay was born in San Andrés Tuxtla, Veracruz, México. He studied education at the Escuela Normal “Enríquez C. Rebsamen.” At Veracruzana University, he studied architecture and plastic arts along with mathematics and philosophy. In 1966, he established his residence in Berkeley, California, where he earned his B.A. from the University of California at Berkeley. He received his M.S. from California State University at Hayward and his doctorate from the University of San Francisco. Presently, he is retired from his teaching career and has returned to his passion for the plastic arts and literature. A student of mythology and cosmology, he is a very learned man of exceptional imagination. Dr. Romay creates in his works what he calls absurd realism. That is to say, the coexistence of the absurd within what we call human Reality. As a poet, a painter, a sculptor. And also, as a narrator and amateur photographer, his art takes us to a quantum world of an oneiric memory.
