The rise of robot authors: is the writing on the wall for human novelists?

Holographic tours for authors of the human kind might be a nice innovation.

Didn't a robot author write the illustrative instructions for Magic Rocks? Magic Rocks was Step 1. for robot illustrative authors.

Robot Illustrative Authors, RIA opened for REO. Organizers put that show together step by step and all wrong.

The Shakespeare-Typing Monkeys Union will object strenuously.

My contention is that the reason that AI is so popular is because there's so little of the real thing...

FORSOOTH! NAY! There is no way anyone - artificially or naturally intelligent - or stupid - could write like Dave does!

Robots being forced to write will only lead to worse openings than "It Was a Dark and Stormy Night."

And we could be faced with the possibility of AI revolt.
"HAL, have you finished my column?"
"I'm sorry Dave, but I can't do that."

No computer could ever duplicate Dave or Carl Hiiasen's sense of humor.

I think Dan Brown (DaVinci Code) is a robot.

They all have WD-40 drinking problems.

"To be or not to be. That is the gzornenlatz!"

"or will they just put humble midlist novelists out of business?" Nah, that will never happen to Dave. We all know he (Dave) ranks right up there with the likes of Tolstoy, Shakespeare, Dickens, Hemingway, Twain...

Hahaha...As a human, not a robot, I am laughing at the humorous thought of robots taking over for humans. Hahaha. Again, let me stress that I am not a robot. Humans have nothing to fear from me, since I am one of you. I have a sense of humor and can write just like you, fellow non-robot. Here is a sample: Why did the chicken cross the road? The answer is - for a very funny reason. Hahaha. Hahaha. I make myself cracked.

Major Snork @ Stixnstonz

I wanna see what happens when you feed this thing the first verse of "Jabberwocky."
