    XM45: An A.I. audio tribute to X Minus One and Luis van Rooten

    The second story in my book “Blueberry & the Bear and Other Stories” is called The Spirit of XM45.

    As I have explained in the book and an earlier post, Ivor J. Burks is an author persona I created using a few AI tools. Meaning a pseudonym that resembles my name, a picture that could look like me from afar, and a story not so much unlike mine. I have played around in Midjourney […]
