Let a robot choose for you

this web page lets you enter up to four preferences and then finds you a novel based on these.

Happy or Sad
Funny or Serious
Safe or Disturbing
Expected or Unpredictable
Larger than Life or Down to Earth
Beautiful or Disgusting
Gentle or Violent
Easy or Demanding
Unsexy or Sexy
Conventional or Unusual
Optimistic or Bleak
Short or Long

I entered these choices

A little Unusual
Definitely Sexy
Definitely Optimistic
Definitely Unpredictable

And it found me this novel.

My Grandmother's Erotic Folktales by Robert Antoni

and with that I reached between my tot-tots and of course everyone was expecting me to remove my pearl-handled pistol - but what I took out instead was something much more lethal.

Fairly Disturbing
Fairly Demanding
Definitely Violent
Definitely Optimistic

Among the recommendations: Blue Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson.

Very Unusual
Fairly Demanding
A little Disgusting
Definitely Unpredictable

Among the recommendations: The Stars my Destination by Alfred Bester. Yay! Also 'Nymphomation by Geoff Noon which I haven't read yet.

    At the moment I have set up this journal so that only friends can comment. I hate doing this, but I was just getting too much Russian spam.
