Last year, Denise and I posted about a silly experiment of letting a neural network write more of the draft for The Gifts of Darkness. The result was weird and silly and… well, certainly nothing that can be used for anything beyond laughing at it.

This year, we’re using a different, more advanced model to generate even more nonsense. Is the result better? Well, actually, yes! But it’s not any less silly.

You can read the article about it, which features more drawings of my favorite machine-generated passages, over at the Extras site! I hope to bring you a smile in these shitty times.
