Caption:

Joaquim Casal is professor of chemical engineering at the
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Barcelona) and a researcher
at the Centre for Technological Risk Studies (CERTEC).
He has published several works of fiction, including
Entropia minvant (Ictineu Prize 2012) and volumes of short
stories such as L’esperit de fum i altres relats (2012) and Una
recerca en dos temps, which received a Special Mention in
the UPC Science Fiction Award 2010. Tilepadeion. Sé què
penses (Tilepadeion. I know what’s in your mind), winner of
the Manuel de Pedrolo Award for Works of Science Fiction
presented by the City of Mataró in 2014, speculates on two
technological achievements: the thermobaric bomb and
the enigmatic Tilepadeion, which would mean the end of
equal weapon strength and privacy of thought. The paths
of the intellectually restless scientist Adam Barnes and the
equally restless international spy Shedarak cross in a journey
that takes them from San Francisco to Akademgorodok,
Edinburgh to Barcelona, in an unrelenting game of
cat and mouse to find out what is being concealed, and to
conceal what is known.
