Luís Carlos Eiras


I am a brazilian writer. So far I've written three books:
1) Viagem ao País de Tropicana, A Quinta Viagem de Gulliver (1982) (Voyage of Tropicana, the Fifth Voyage of Gulliver)
A sequel to Swift´s Gulliver's Travels.
2) A Expansão da Memória (1986/1988) (Memory expansion)
Two computer technicians who are expanding the memory of a company's computer make a series of discoveries concerning the real workings of the capitalist system. A satire on computers, capitalism, and business administration, making use of concepts drawn from cybernetics and physics (entropy, thermodynamics).
These books are registered in the Library of Congress.
3) And now, by Smashwords, I published O Teste de Turing (the Turing Test), a novel about banks, artificial intelligence and the sin of usury.
