AI Science Fiction Book Covers: Stranger in a Strange Land

If you click on the Craiyon-generated image, the larger view looks creepier. Today’s image is of Heinlein’s classic, Stranger in a Strange Land, though I wonder how the AI pulls from the Bible.

Valentine Michael Smith is a human being raised on Mars, newly returned to Earth. Among his people for the first time, he struggles to understand the social mores and prejudices of human nature that are so alien to him, while teaching them his own fundamental beliefs in grokking, watersharing, and love.

AI Science Fiction Book Covers: The Martian Chronicles

I love The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury. On the left, we have the 1984 paperback cover. On the right, we have Craiyon AI‘s interpretation.

Events in the chronicle include the apocalyptic destruction of both Martian and human civilizations, both instigated by humans, though there are no stories with settings at the catastrophes. The outcomes of many stories raise concerns about the values and direction of America of the time by addressing militarism, science, technology, and war time prosperity

AI Science Fiction Book Covers: The Day of the Triffids

What happens when you run a science fiction book title through Craiyon AI?

Today we took John Wyndam’s novel The Day of the Triffids and get this scary interpretation.

The Day of the Triffids is a 1951 post-apocalyptic novel by the English science fiction author John Wyndham. After most people in the world are blinded by an apparent meteor shower, an aggressive species of plant starts killing people. Although Wyndham had already published other novels using other pen name combinations drawn from his real name, this was the first novel published as “John Wyndham”.
