    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.
