Welcome to my website!

Let the Robot Write!

  The first time he heard of the existence of a robot that writes fiction, Pat T. Knight, bestselling author of detective novels, laughed.

O chestiune de libertate

Maast clipi când ceasul – pe a treia etajeră la dreapta, deasupra cuțitului însângerat, sub ghemul de cabluri pe care își tot promitea să îl descurce mâine, niciodată astăzi – începu să sune incontrolabil de parcă ar fi avut cu adevărat viață și o personalitate cam colerică. 00:00 arăta cu prea multă mândrie.
