Radu Luchian(ov): Pastime:

"Reality needs fantasy to render it desirable, just as fantasy needs reality to make it believable." -- Stephen Duncombe: Dream

I'm a reading addict. Just like my Mom, I can go hungry if that's what it takes to get a book I really want to read. Unfortunately, lately I'm reading the fiction I'm addicted to, only while waiting for public transportation: the rest of my entertainment time is gobbled up by phone games and the few TV series that I find worth watching.

Until I find a better place, here's to link outDouglas Adams!

On my extended site, at home, I have many links down below, but for the public site, I'll keep only some of my poems, some poems that I like a lot (and plan to translate :); they're in Romanian and French, a list of translations I undertook and the list of books I want to get. Whenever I get the time, I'll bring back on-line some of the fantasy role-playing I wrote as a Denizen, then as Historian of Persona World.

  • If you want an in on the things that bug me, check the list of commentary I wrote
  • Since I like movies, when I get the time, I add a bit to the link outIMDB archive.
