This is what’s called the overture

Interesting since (and I know this makes me a bad horror writer) I’ve read very little of Lovecraft. I know the mythos, and I know my Hynos from my Ulthar, I’d just always assumed my work was a derivative echo of King and Gerritsen

I write like
H. P. Lovecraft

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Makes me wonder how may people I’ll lose or gain from this.

  1. What piece did you use to get Lovecraft? I copy and pasted a recent blog entry and got DAN BROWN!

    The good news is that when I replaced it with the text of “Digital Media” I got Chuck Palahniuk. I can deal with that.

    I’ll probably spend all night seeing what short stories get me which authors.

  2. Dave, I feel your pain. I got Dan Brown *3X!* Also Chuck Palahniuk, Margaret Atwood (twice), Douglas Adams (sweet!), L. Frank Baum (a story written for an Oz collection, go figure) and finally good old Howard Phillips himself.

    MontiLee, for the record, the story which got me the Lovecraft comparison was the one you requested (the one which had to have a squirrel, a candle, and an enchanted rose).

    So thank you for that.
