and I'm dying to find out if all the crap about this is a bunch of unreal good fiction just to be hung on the wall paper. I bet two penny that my steam is heavier than 21 grams. It is understandable given how much arrogance flows through my veins. The great Caron is just an alcoholic boatman carrying bags to Chilia harbor. The churches are not as stubborn as the communal CAP, but die if there is something more frustrating in any world than to end your time in the middle of the damn senten

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 May 2022, the group has 8,350 members.) The authors write ultra-short stories, with the texts limited to 500 characters (in Romanian, so the length of the English translation might be a little different) - a flash-fiction exercise on a topic that changes almost daily. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
