For almost an hour he kept talking to me about antennas. That this fifth generation of technology will bring a real revolution in the world of fashion, art, design and other fields. That in virtual spaces our ideas will come to life. To show off, I told him that the clitoris is also a kind of antenna. A device for transmitting and receiving electromagnetic waves. A sense organ from another dimension. He asked me to let him study the antenna up close. I let him. Now he's looking for some foreign station.

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 September 2022, the group has 9,250 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)
