This was created by an iPad
While on Holiday in Spain more than a year ago now, my partner’s iPad appended a story manuscript with this at the end of the file, gradually adding to it over a period of weeks:

Hello again hello hello we’re just now hello hello hello how are you doing my dear Lopressor
I named it Lopressor for copyright reasons (I want to protect the iPad!).
Just look at this masterpiece of fiction, assuming it is fiction! Not only has it constructed a full sentence but it has created a name from nowhere. Lopressor is not a name used in the work of fiction in the rest of the file. This is a completely new name. Not only has the iPad created a story, but has invented a name. It’s also interesting that the name ‘Lopressor’ is almost an anagram of ‘Processor.’
I have waited almost 2 years for any additional text but this appears to be the complete work.
This is my challenge to you and anybody else out there: can anybody else produce fiction created by any computer without prompting? If you can’t, I claim this as the first fiction written unprompted by a computer. Drop me a line in the comments below if you dispute my claim!
