In the first date


It's already happening nowadays, people who choose silicon couples as partners in life. Now they are mere extremely expensive dolls, slaves of their owner's fantasies. But the future of robotics promises to go much further, maybe towards the creation of a species parallel to ours which will make us rethink the meaning of many notions of our existence. Romance for instance. I hope you won't find this a too sweet fiction...

Rites of lead, prayer from the sea

Through the years in which The Prohibition was enforced in the United States, the streets of cities like Chicago or New York remained, ironically, soaked in alcohol and blood. But that war for money and power was being done also at sea, in boats or ships similar —maybe worse looking— to the one in the illustration. Rum and other liquors were brought from Havana to the Florida coast avoiding, bribing or shooting the coast guards. This wasn't an exclusive game for men, there were also women who played as well and even more deadly than them. And it's in one of those women from who I took inspiration to make the story I present you in this post. Truly a lady to be reckoned with, I tell you.
