    • Oh damn, I put four different things I've written in there, and the result was always HP Lovecraft. Interesting. Maybe I should read some of that.

    • I thought it was pretty cool. I put a couple of my old creative writing stories in there and they all showed up as Chuck Palahniuk.

    • Well, if you're ever strapped for cash you can always turn to writing light torture snuff.

  • David Foster Wallace. I hadn't heard of him before now.
