Yesterday I read an article that mentioned that Forbes, the financial newspaper has been using a firm called Narrative Sciences to computer generate short (500 words) articles on financial trends. Today I've browsed an article on an analysis of the life and death of new words. The analysts used Google's five million scanned books.

If there is such a thing as formula fiction that has a pattern, one as yet not analysed because the human mind is not capable of it, then there should be no problem for a 'really' good computer being able to manage the task. If this happens, will some genre fiction, in the future, be written by a computer.

Can you visulize it? Not only will Kindle display a novel, it will also be able to write it on demand. "Give me novel with a sexy female vampire who is also a witch." And up it comes. Vampires For You by A. Kindle
