Velvet Black Sky

100 stories from an alternate universe

For information about this project, please see the page on my website.

The output is available here.

The source data is available here.

The notebooks run in order:

1_select_cliched_sentences.ipynb
2_create_new_sentences.ipynb
3_make_stories.ipynb
4_get_names.ipynb
5_clean_stories.ipynb
6_make_book.ipynb

The notebooks require Mallet, gensim, Stanford CoreNLP, spaCy, and Latex. Mallet and CoreNLP require Java.

I use an older (1.9) version of spaCy (the current version seems to require a huge amount of memory for novel-length texts); I could, of course, have used CoreNLP for everything . . .
