I'm doing some construction work here on the cultural shiti you've come to love and hate (and sometimes read, too!).
Firstly, the following items that used to be mere articles are now "Pages", which is to say permanently enshrined in the scrollbar to the right : Republican Thesaurus with Vocabulary and Dictionary! ; Obscure terms. A brand new item that nearly ended up written as an article also joins the ranks of "pages" in the melee.
Secondly, the following items that used to be "Pages" are no longerii (but I'm saving their full content here, just in case) :
I wrote a book...
Over three days between 2016 and 2017 I rewrote the miserable literary failure of some nobody. You can read it from here.

... many years ago, which is to say during 2005, together with a good friend while travelling through Turkey, Egypt and other warm climes.
This book, Asylum by title, was published in 2006 and lived its 18 months of life a book lives these days, after which it went out of the commercial circuit - out of print as this situation is called.
At the insistence of fine folk that wanted to see it online, I publish it here : Asylum, chapter 1.
(This text was originally published in Romanian, when Trilema was started, years ago. The original is preserved for no particular good reasons below. The novel itself was originally found on stand-alone html pages, but those seem to have been lost when I moved the blog to its own dedicated domain. It seems silly to reconstruct that structure at this point, so instead we will publish it as independent articles this time.)
Aceasta carte, pre numele ei Asylum, caci se afla scrisa in lb engleza in original, a aparut in 2006, si-a trait cele 18 luni de viata pe care le traieste o carte in zilele noastre, si a iesit din circuitul comercial - out of print cum i se spune situatiei.
La insistentele mai multor oameni de treaba care au vrut s-o vada si online, i-am gasit culcus aici. Nu stiu daca dumneavoastra cititi limba engleza, ori va intereseaza literatura, dar daca da, aveti linkul mai jos :

That'd be all. Thanks for tuning in.———

- There's scarcely any sense in keeping a special page for Asylum around, seeing how it's one of a dozen or so novels I published to date. Yes it was a big deal at some point, but that point is buried under more than a decade of the past.
