Have you ever wondered whom you write like? Xensen has this nifty “I write like” engine, where you insert your text and it analyses which author you are closest to. Either take it with a grain of salt or believe it, as you will.
I put in various fragments of Dark Logic and it came out like this, in order of frequency:
James Joyce, Dan Brown, Vladimir Nabokov, H. P. Lovecraft, Anne Rice, Mario Puzo, Stephen King, Cory Doctorow, Arthur C. Clarke, Arthur Conan Doyle, J. K. Rowling, David Foster Wallace, James Fenimore Cooper, Margaret Atwood, Margaret Mitchell, Ernest Hemingway
The short stories so far came out as:
David Foster Wallace, Stephen King, Arthur C. Clarke, Dan Brown and Edgar Allan Poe
