This is Robin Sloan’s workspace for 2019. The newsletter is the best way to follow along; it goes out every Sunday.

Print offering

This is an experiment in AI, collaboration, and fiction. You, an apprentice mage, will define the parameters of a quest against the Dark Lord. You will receive a map (!) and a short story narrating that quest.

Sold out!
