Congratulations to Adam Hammond on his piece in Wired magazine
Adam Hammond
An 8-page article feature about his efforts (with computer scientist Julian Brooke) to develop a computational approach to help writer Stephen Marche (PhD Toronto 2006) write “the perfect science fiction story.” What Stephen came up with is a parody of academic research. Wired enlisted two heavy-hitters in the US publishing scene to evaluate whether the story was in fact “perfect”; their conclusion, in a word, was “no."
