Homecoming by Miguel Hidalgo - What lasts forever? Does love? Does death?... Nothing lasts forever.... Not even forever...When I discovered this story I knew I had to narrate it, and that was before I discovered that it was written by a 15 year old descendant of Simon Bolivar, the Liberator of America. Bolivar led what are currently the countries of Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Panama and Bolivia to independence from the Spanish Empire.Homecoming appeared in If Worlds of Science Fiction magazine and they had this to say, “It’s a story that might have come from one of America’s more mature and experienced writers. Our assumption at first was that it did. But we were wrong. It’s a “first published” story (in America) by a young man named Miguel Hidalgo who is all of 15 years old. At first we didn't believe it, but it was confirmed and we found ourselves with not only a “first” but one that was written by the youngest writer (to our knowledge) ever to break into science fiction.”Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Miguel came to the United States, in a basket, at the age of two months. Began writing poetry at the age of five and before he was ten he had published numerous short stories as well as poetry. He traveled the world with his mother, who was one of the first women diplomats from Venezuela to the United States.
