    Okay, add another enormous book to my TBR pile. But only if it's an English translation, mind you, and it had better be as good as you say...

    Wait. *looks suspicious* Is this a *military* book? I still haven't read that ... what was that armoured-tank-is-anthropomorphised book you recommended ages ago again?

    Two such, by two different authors, in two different (real, and, as far as I know, also, _storyline_ time periods).

    Bolo, by Keith Laumer (series of short stories, I've read them)
    Big Boys Don't Cry, by Tom Kratman

    Three writing samples, the first - H.P. Lovecraft. The second and third - David Foster Wallace.

    I've been inserting different texts I've written. So far, I've gotten H.P. Lovecraft 3 times, and Vladimir Nabokov once.

    However I did laugh in surprise due us sharing the same birth date and a few other things .

    I see that a lot of people have got those two authors as their type. Maybe it's like the default type for people who don't have a unique way of writing.

    Most authors - who have written a shit ton - I assume develop their unique way of writing.

    Hopefully you are not a e4 because what I said just now would make envious or whatever if you were.
