God, what a bad title.
Surely it's the book of a great creative man, the kind who thinks he has something to say even in writhing, not just on the pitches. He knows best, has experience with large clients and wants to tell from the intimacy of his briefs and projects. He's someone who knows how to be inventive and stellar and couldn't resist keeping that to himself. He certainly has at least one sponsor; he just wasn't going to pour all this bullshits on his own money. Here, exactly what I was telling you about: Pumanitas publishing house. Collective project, my ass!

Real Fiction is a collective project started in 2013 by Florin Piersic Jr. The concept of Real Fiction continued to exist as a Facebook group, after a volume of stories was published at Humanitas Publishing House. (In January 2021, the group has 3.000 members.) The authors write ultra-short stories, setting their texts within the limit of 500 symbols (in Romanian language, so in English the limit might be a little different) - a flash-fiction exercise with an almost daily changed topic. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
