Not sure what to think. I put in some writing from a post here and got:
David Foster Wallace.

I then put in some original writing I had done and got: H. P. Lovecraft.

Since both were fiction writers, I guess I'm in good company either way...*L*

Analysing half a page from Joyce's Dubliners gave Ray Bradbury.

David Foster Wallace and James Joyce, from two posts on same threadThink

Seems the analysis is based on what thread/topic you are pasting from.
I just pasted from a different section and got Isaac Asimov who wrote;

The Robots of Dawn

Second Foundation

Foundation

The Gods Themselves

The End of Eternity ( bit worried about this one,Anxious )

Ray Bradbury . . .
So then practice and rehearse
To find heart-soul’s universe,
Knowing that by moving/seeing
Proves for all time: Doing’s being!

Alas I turn out to be William Gibson whom I had never heard of. It pleases me even less when I discover that he is/was ' the noir prophet of the cyberpunk subgenre' although I might save that as a reply to bureaucrats. However, I later read of his avoidance of the Vietnam war; 'At his draft hearing, he honestly informed interviewers that his intention in life was to sample every mind-altering substance in existence' which reminds me somewhat of my misspent youth. Interesting site!

You can take my word for it, my lad. There is the gifted and the non-gifted. Keep up the good work...

Wish you well,

PS. Try posting some other -e.g. a paragraph by Mr King, and you will get the proof you are after... We must admit it is real fun, though.

Anne Rice, apparently.

An infinite number of monkeys was my initial response to the question.

Mind you, it thinks Leonard Cohen writes like Agatha Christie so...

Fun, though !

I like to try my hand at short stories and have received a second place and an honorable mention. So, today I selected a few paragraphs from one of the stories and the answer came back Margaret Attwood. She is one of our most famous Canadian writers. Maybe I should write more stories. I'll have to think about that Think

I pasted all of Rudyard Kipling's "If" and I got Gertrude Stein.Brick wall
I then pasted it again and got H. P. Lovecraft,Eh?

If it cannot recognize "If" then the analysis has to be 'iffy'.Shhh

That analyzer is just for fun, it seems. It has some algorithm which picks words from your text and matches with its database and displays a result. I entered some random words in English, then in my native language, then some random clicking on my keybord -- I got some names. :) If I write like Ernest Hemingway (as it says in one of the attempts), I am sorry for his readers. No hard feelings fans!
