Casemiro Galamba in Prison and Other Follies, 2nd edition

A novelised story based on real events. 

This book is dedicated to all those who directly or indirectly work for Justice and to all prisoners and ex-prisoners in general.

Many words have been written and said about prisoners and jails, the juridical and penal system, but perhaps the essential hasn´t been said or written yet, for society, in general, continues to judge the situation little lucid, inferring that society continues poorly informed on the matter.

The Miracle in The Holm Oak, 2nd edition

Not suitable for the faithful

"Helping Fatima climbing the holm oak turned out to be quite a thankless task. Beelzebub Goat never imagined this graceful and delicate body to be that heavy.
He almost threw out his bellows with the tremendous effort he had made. Still, this wasn´t enough, for the evil of his sins, he caught a strong kick of the saint thrashing around in vain attempts to place her feet solidly on the tree´s trunk to facilitate the priest´s work."
