The air smelled of ripe jackfruits that had fallen to the ground with a thud and splayed themselves open.

She was also used to waking up at four in the morning and walking determinedly to [...]

Death Is for Those Who Die

It took me more than ninety years to admit it, Mãe, but you’re right: my tattoos are fading.

Q:
A: No, they’re all Jason.
And most of them are “murder” in a way that, twenty years from now, you probably still won’t have made good laws [...]

The Love Life of John Doe

You don’t like the AI walking around in her face, wearing her skin, her smile, her eyes. Of course, it’s not like you’d say anything. Not after the deal you made with it. After all, that’s why you did what you did.
In fact, if anyone asks, you’d say that you’re the type of guy that [...]
