Monks and Code and Cats

The essay below appears at the end of the newly released edition Our Algorithm Who Art Perfection. The novella was originally published as a one-of-a-kind edition in 2016. It was available as a PDF for some time in 2016 and 2017 before I stopped using PDF distribution mechanisms. It first appeared in print in 2019 as part of the first edition of the collection Transmutations. For the 2020 editions of my work, Our Algorithm is now a standalone paperback separate from Transmutations. It’s been a long journey, but the novella finally stands on its own with a gorgeous new cover by Zhivko Zhelev.
