Corey Doctorow. Never heard of him but we share the same taste in spectacles.

Threw some of my poetry in from The Poet's Corner here and I ended up with James Joyce. I was hoping for Sylvia Plath or Emily Dickinson but as long as I didn't draw Robert Frost I'm okay with it.

There is only one really serious philosophical question, and that is suicide. -Camus

William Gibson. Seems like it's pretty close. I did a lot of technical writing at my last job. That stuff was dry enough to cause people concussions when they fell asleep while reading it and did a head-desk. I'm pretty sure that one printed page would have easily soaked up a pint of gravy.

He wrote Fight Club and other novels. A modern 90s/current day writer.

I've noticed something though, I don't see many female writers on this list. I did get 1 woman, who I never heard of when I put a recent poem of mine on the list. But beyond that I've at least, not seen a female show up frequently, idk the database.

In one result I took the poem I recently posted here in the poems thread, and got Dan Brown but I also took the original version I had of it, which I only very slightly altered for posting here(mainly just form and tightening up some phrases) But that original version had be getting Neil Gaiman.

I got two female writers in my first four attempts. I kind of got obsessed with the program and ran nine pieces through it and got one of the female writers, Austen, again.

Evidently I write like Jane Austen, Anne Rice, James Joyce, Chuck Palahniuk, Daniel Defoe, David Foster Wallace, Kurt Vonnegut, and Cory Doctorow.

Maybe I should change my user name to Sybil.

The first rule about being compared to someone else, is never talk about being compared to someone else.

Apparently I write like Kurt Vonnegut and George Orwell. Never I thought their English was so bad Wink
