Apparently if you copypasta in stuff to this thing, it compares it through algorithms or possibly arcane rituals to various authors

Ok having now run through two of my posts, and having it also generate this result, I've apparently stumbled not onto a potentially amusing internet site, but rather onto some form of A.I. that has a single-minded fixation on an author I'm not sure I've ever heard of.

It's like skynet got a masters in english lit

Maybe the database of authors only has, like, three people in it.

Ok, actually I did it again because the example text was from a short story I wrote from college so it seemed a little but unnatural. I tried again, because I figured maybe something a bit more natural, like a paragraph from a chat log or something involving me trying to explain something might work better. Who did I get?








Guess who I got?























I got Stephanie Meyer. Yeah, I apparently write like her.

Congratulations, you don't have to expend any effort to write or to make millions.

Maybe it's because most of us have been presumably running forum posts through, whereas aliz actually used different things

Maybe whoever David Wallace is, his books are like a giant collage of internet forum posts

This may have accidentally exposed a business model. It only remains to be seen what trend the public is likely to next embrace (I would assume we're nearing a cycle where the creature from the black lagoon re-captures the markets attention, as a result of the media coverage of the oil spill)

Well, I did use one of my Doom RP posts, which is the closest I've done to legitimate writing on this board.

I wish I'd gotten Alan Dean Foster instead.

If I'd gotten Evelyn Waugh that would have been Awesome

Or cormac mccarthy. Or hemingway. Theres a couple of S Rank options

If it had been like "You write like dan brown" or something I'd have sued it for libel. Cause thats just flat out an attack on my character.

I looked this dude up, apparently he was frustrated by the prominance of irony in contemporary culture, and then offed himself. Wikipedia didn't state the progression of these events as a straight trajectory from point a to point b.

But I'm still assuming yeah, he killed himself because of hipsters.

Wodehouse is another one whos generally considered in high esteem, apparently.

Didn't this guy write some of the star wars novels? The name sounds familiar.

I mean, the ones from back before there were Palpatine clones and force-immune aliens in living space ships and han solo's kid is the ultimate jedi or something. Or am I confusing him with somebody else, cause I read one as a kid and it actually wasn't bad
