Ramiro Sanchiz (born November 6, 1978) is a Uruguayan writer, literary critic and translator.[1][2][3] He is known for the creation of "Projecto Stahl", a literary project which hopes to explore the different permutations of a universe that revolves around Federico Stahl, a character that appears in all of Sanchiz's works.[4]

Biography[edit]

Ramiro Sanchiz was born on November 6, 1978 in Montevideo. His first science fiction stories were published in science fiction and fantasy magazines and fanzines like the Uruguayan Diaspar and the Argentinian Galileo and Axxón,[5] The first of his stories to be included in a book was "Yocasta" in El descontento y la promesa (Editorial Trilce) in 2008.[6] The following year, Estuario Editora published Perséfone, his first novel, accompanied by a comic illustrated by Matías Bergara.[7] Since then Sanchiz has published more than twenty books.

All of Sanchiz's narrative revolves around the character of Federico Stahl, in whom some, including the Uruguayan literary critic Alicia Torres, believe to have seen an alter ego of the author.[8] A good part of these novels can be included in genres such as science fiction[9] or "new weird".[10]
