Alberto Olmos (Segovia, Spain, 1975) Debuted with the novel A bordo del naufragio (finalist for the Herralde Award), followed by Trenes hacia Tokio, El talento de los demás, Tatami, El estatus (Ojo Crítico Award RNE) and Ejército enemigo. He was responsible for the miscellaneous volumes Algunas ideas buenísimas que el mundo se va a perder (Caballo de Troya) and Vida y opiniones de Juan Mal-herido (Melusina), both composed by texts from the internet. Granta Magazine (Spanish edition) chose him in 2010 as one of the 22 best young Spanish language novelists. Alberto Olmos lived in the city of Moka (Tochigi Prefecture) between January 2003 and April 2006. There he wrote the novel El talento de los demás and kept an autobiographical blog which he finally published under the title Trenes hacia Tokio. The texts edited in Japan were part of this blog and remained unknown until now.
