“Pruebas” is the third story I’ve had translated into Spanish for miNatura. Issue #139 of miNatura was inspired by Frank Herbert’s Dune. One of the tests in “Pruebas” is the gom jabbar, the box into which Paul placed his hand in order to prove his worthiness to the Reverend Mother at the beginning of Dune. In my tale, two women are tested. One passes, while the other fails. I have always been a fan of Dune – a fact I hope translated well into this short little piece.
