Booklamp is a technology demo that analyzes the text of books along multiple lines (action, density, description, dialogue, etc.) and then uses that info to find other books with similar patterns. Right now, it’s only got a handful of sf books under its wing, so it’s purely a demo, and they’re trolling for sponsors who might be able to support their effort to gets lots of books included.

    does it match them for size, colour, number of badly painted dragons on the cover etc? Does it let me match them for my own arcane purposes? Sorry! Just started reading your book David. Great stuff. dc
