Ray Bradbury. Hell yes.
My shit list: Stephen Harper, anarchists that complain about taxes instead of institutionalized torture, those people walking, anyone who lets a single aspect of themselves define their entire personality, salesmen that don't smoke pipes, Fredericton New Brunswick, bigots, philosophy majors, my nemesis, pirates that don't do anything, criminals without class, sociopaths, narcissists, furries, juggalos, foes.

I want to make one of these now which doesn't return authors, but random figures from history, many of them monstrous.

Apparently I write like Stephen King.
Tried this again with two more pieces of writing: a fan-fic I did back in high school and my The Carnival piece.

The fan-fic gave me Stephen King again, but The Carnival gave me Cory Doctorow.

Never have read anything by Doctorow before and just realized I've been following him on Tumblr without realizing it. Need to see about finding a book or two by him now...

I got David Foster Wallace (who I'm completely unfamiliar with), for a brief I wrote about the Hamdi v. Rumsfeld decision.

The court opinion itself got FUCKING H.P. LOVECRAFT
