A genre writer trapped in the body of an AI scientist, Akis Linardos draws inspiration from the lands he lived in throughout his research career, including Greece, Spain, Ireland, and Germany among others. His academic exploits began with a biology degree, switched to a chimeric aberration called bioinformatics, then settled on doing research in artificial intelligence. He had a rather hard time sating his thirst for meaning in life. Until he found writing. It sucked him in and never let go. Maybe he’ll stop complaining and enjoy his time on Earth.
