With the celebration of 20 years since the establishment of the Zburătorul publishing house, the editors have released a magazineedition of the funniest mistakes found before printing. Type setters are sometimes daydreaming, tired or distracted. As such, certain words turn out quite differently: Bed Riding Hood, Eros and Psycho, I never thought I'd learn to tie, Shakespeare's Bonnets, Snob White, Hammer and Pickle. For every two books purchased, you receive the Foot for Thought magazine.

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 2023, the group has 10,220 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 every few days. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
