James Joyce. For this bit from The Married Man's Lament

We had just just heard each other's voices and turned our heads to see the source of those first attractive tones. We appraised each other, just as curious people always do when someone attracts their attention. Our eyes met. The simple message that passed between us would brighten our day and inspire us to fantasize about each other the next time we each had sex with our spouse. The message, "Yes, I would do you and yes, I see that you would do me, if only..." need never be spoken. Indeed, neither of us could dare to speak it. Speaking it would cross the line. The last part of our mutual appraisal was the noticing of the wedding rings. We both had our wallets out to pay for our morning jolt. Our symbols of bondage to others were clearly on display. The sadness in our mutual smiles said, "Yes, I am faithful to my spouse, in deed, if not in thought, and yes, it would disturb me if you made a pass at me. I would feel both complimented by the expression of desire and disgusted at the thought that you would cheat on your spouse."

and Cory Doctorow. For this bit from my as yet unpublished Immune To My Beauty

I'm certain I will help some guy get lucky tonight. I'm in the mood for some cock and I have plans within plans. I've shaved my pussy and now I'm fingering it. I'm feeling that tingle as my slick fingertip circles my clit. I stop. I know I look best when I'm cockhungry. I can walk into a room full of men and hear the gasps. I can see the stunned looks on their faces and as each one makes eye contact, when the stunned look leaves them, it is always replaced with desire to satisfy my hunger. Unless they're gay. And even then I can get a satisfying "I wish I was you" look from them.

My latest story is too hot to publish. My most recent story before that is Even Stranger In Lust

Pretendy serious story - Anne Rice (who?)

Direct memory - Douglas Adams (I've actually heard of him)

My favourite story - Dan Brown (dammit)

Instructional story - James Joyce (heard of him, never read anything by him)

The one serious one I did - Anne Rice (yep, still nothing...)

Attempt to deliver something Lush readers might like - Anne Rice (I'm going to have to Google her)

Attempt to explore my sex story comfort zone - Chuck Palahniuk (who?)

Attempt to write about stuff I like with a gorgeous bloke in it - Edgar Allan Poe (but there were only gulls in it)

This is horribly addictive. And I still haven't done all my stories or started on my poetry yet.

What I would like to know is, if these people are famous, are they rich, and if so, can I be rich too, please?

Okay, Anne Rice and Chuck Palahniuk, I'm going to find out who the fudge you are, and why you're nicking my style (unless that's a bad thing, in which case, why are you contaminating me with your style?)...

When I put my Lindsey series in part by part, I got the following:
Part 1 - Chuck Palahunuik
Part 2 - Cory Docotrow
Part 3 - Ann Rice

When I put it in as a whole (which, btw is how I wrote it), I got Ann Rice again

Three other stories, The Eldi Sex Club, A Woman's Touch and A Different Kind of Encounter all came up with Ann Rice

One of my poems, The Unlikely Pair resulted in Robert Louis Stevenson

And a SciFi story I wrote which is posted on the blue site resulted in Douglas Adams.

Going to have to look up the last one, but the first two put me in pretty good company.

Read my latest series, The Demon Eloc Part 1-4
Two more good reads:
In the new Money category, The Operator
In the new Monster Sex category, The Monster in My Dreams

If you've never read any Douglas Adams, I strongly suggest that you try immersing yourself his books. Even if you don't like sci-fi. If a bit of perfect prose brings a smile to your lips, you can enjoy his work. I know people who don't like it - my Mum, for instance. But for some people, they read Douglas' words and have an epiphany. You could be one of them.

Having had one of my works compared to the Great Man reveals this tool to be fundamentally flawed...

Well, I entered a couple of paragraphs of "Pride and Prejudice and Fucking" into the program, and it said I write like .... Jane Austen! So perhaps it's not so stupid after all.

Mind you, "Watersports with my girlfriend" was apparently like Cary Doctorow (who?) When I wrote that, I was reading Cormac McCarthy, and I actually think all the long sentences joined together with lots of "and"s came from him!

"Naughty girls on the beach" was Margaret Atwood! I may have to re-read "The Handmaid's Tale", because I think I missed the lesbian sex scenes in that...

Finally, "A Walk, a swim and a fuck" was JRR Tolkein, apparently. The mind boggles...

Me, I don't need no fancy-pants program to know that, judging from the reactions of editors and agents all across this country, I write like a bunch of other unpublished novelist. :(

I got Chuck Palanhiuk on every attempt larger than a couple of sentences. I wouldn't liken myself to him at all, but then I've only read a couple of his. Also only tried it with my erotic fiction, which does own a somewhat different voice than my other prose fiction, which is certainly different from my stage or screen voices.
