A Bandeira do Elefante e da Arara – Romance

Numa madrugada, numa festa na casa do Mauro, conversando com o Maneco, sugeri que, numa viagem qualquer, mais compensador que chegar ao destino é ter a possibilidade de apreciar o trajeto. Hoje, trinta anos depois, tenho certeza de que estava certo com relação à minha escolha de prioridades.

Naturalmente, a mesma ordem de importância continua válida para todos os outros tipos de jornada. Participar da preparação de uma festa é tão (ou mais) divertido do que a própria festa. E poder participar de qualquer jornada é um privilégio.

Seis anos atrás, quando publicamos O Encontro Fortuito de Gerard van Oost e Oludara, a primeira história da Bandeira do Elefante e da Arara, na Coleção Asas do Vento, não seria capaz de antever a amplitude que essa aventura iria alcançar. Essa história foi publicada na revista Realms of Fantasy e foi finalista do prêmio Nebula que é considerado uma espécie de Oscar da literatura fantástica. Duas outras histórias da dupla foram publicadas na Coleção Asas do Vento. Depois o Christopher adaptou a primeira novela para histórias em quadrinhos (soberbamente ilustrada por Carolina Mylus e colorida por Ursula Dorada). Em 2011, Christopher foi um dos convidados da Jornada Literária de Passo Fundo e falou com 12.000 alunos em dois dias.

Uma bela jornada, mas ela ainda está longe de terminar. O Christopher escreveu um romance a partir das histórias que haviam sido publicadas que foi traduzido pelo Causo e, neste momento, está sendo diagramado e deve ser lançado em agosto, e desenvolveu um jogo de tabuleiro (a arte de Ursula Dorada é deslumbrante) que está em fase de orçamento e deve ver a luz ainda este ano. E no ano que vem nossa expectativa é ter um módulo de RPG ambientado no universo de Gerard van Oost e Oludara.

Christopher Kastensmidt estudou engenharia de computação na Rice University e foi trabalhar na Intel Corporation. Lá, ele prestou assessoria técnicas para dezenas de empresas, inclusive LucasArts. Em 1999, saiu da Intel para se juntar à Southlogic Studios, uma empresa de jogos digitais em Porto Alegre, fundada em 1996. Em 2001, ele imigrou definitivamente para o Brasil.

Kastensmidt criou o conceito original e game design de Imagine Wedding Designer, que vendeu mais de 1.2 milhão de cópias, e é até hoje o jogo brasileiro de maior faturamento. Em 2009, negociou a venda da Southlogic Studios para a multinacional Ubisoft, criando uma filial no Brasil onde continuou trabalhando como coordenador de estúdio e diretor criativo. Saiu da empresa em 2010 para seguir sua carreira de escritor.

Em 2014, Kastensmidt foi finalista do Prêmio Argos, dado pelo clube de Leitores de Ficção Científica e em 2015, foi finalista do Prêmio AGES – Livro do Ano, dado pela Associação Gaúcha de Escritores.
