Writing meme

About the writing meme that's going around:

Chapter one of Skirmish: Douglas Adams
Chapter two of Skirmish: Stephen King
Chapter three of Skrimish: H.P. Lovecraft.
Chapter four of Skirmish: Raymond Chandler

All four chapters: Douglas Adams (the chapters run about 10k words each)

Chapter one of Cast in Ruin: Ray Bradbury
Chapter two of Cast in Ruin: Johathan Swift (sic)
Chapter three of Cast in Ruin: Douglas Adams
Chapter four of Cast in Ruin: Dan Brown

All four chapters: Ray Bradbury (the chapters run around 5k words each)

… but smaller sample sizes (a few paragraphs) tend to all be Dan Brown, with one Stephen King.

My network has created a monster. I think we have definitively proven that the algorithm is highly unsophisticated.

Yeah, I'd say it's a wee bit unsophisticated. I plugged in one of my recent posts and it spewed out James Fenmore Cooper. Boy, I sure hope I don't write like that.
