Of all the many authors I've read, there are a few that I consciously strive towards:

Alexandre Dumas - The Three Musketeers &c.
Richard K Morgan - Altered Carbon
William Gibson - Neuromancer

I find a certain elegance in their sparse, lean prose; they are decidedly not purple.

That's a fun site! I put in the three snippets and got:

- Stephen King x 1
- Dan Brown x2

Guess I have some new literature to check out! I've never read them before.

I put in one story, a single paragraph blurb, another story, a short play, and a poem.

I got Anne Rice, Stephen King, Anne Rice again, Agatha Christie, & H. G. Wells.

I find the results to be a bit dubious.

I tried it with three  different stories.  Agatha Christie came up for two and Anne Rice for the one.

Mario Puzo
Agatha Christie

I don't believe I've read either author's works, but it seems like they would be very different. Curious!

Tried 3 pieces from three different stories and I got Agatha Christie, then Anne Rice, then Ruyard Kipling. Huh! Last time I tried one of these I couldn't get anything other than Stephen King, but he didn't show up at all this run. Interesting.

I got Anne Rice twice from two different Roleplays, and Arthur Clark from my thesis. Makes sense that a science paper would be similar to a science fiction writer. Very cool.

ok, that's interesting.

I got Harry Harrison, but really couldn't see it, so out of curiosity, I threw an excerpt from Terry Pratchett in there.

Sir Pratchett got Arthur C. Clark. So...I would guess it works off of word choice rather than sentence structure or similar stuff, kinda curious given that it has an actual AI learning module in there.

As someone who's actually learning about Natural Language Processing for work, this actually doesn't surprise me too much. The models I've worked with don't really learn sentence structure. It's more like they learn, "What words appear close to other words?" In fact, a very common method is called "Bag of Words", where it actually jumbles up the order of words in a sentence.

Yeah in a way that's true, but for analyzing writing styles it'd go a long way to consider basic stuff like the length of the sentences, interpunctuation, length of paragraphs, usage of direct speech, etc.

Well, that's both the challenge and the beauty of machine learning. For all I know, the model might look at those things. But a big part of machine learning is letting the model find its own patterns. We don't really program an AI telling it "what to look for" so to speak. Instead, we just feed it data, and it figures out what patterns are most striking. In fact, you can't really lift up the hood to examine how the model makes these decisions, because it's just so complex.

I got Dan Brown after using a sample from my Now and Forevermore story.

I got Agatha Christie 3 times in a row.

I think it's trying to tell me something.

I write like
Chuck Palahniuk (Me and My Monster)

I write like
Ursula K. Le Guin (Druid's Kassel)

I write like
Stephenie Meyer (Herald of the Storm)

I suppose the lesson here is that I don't actually write like anybody in particular.
