I get the impression that their methodology is still the one that is used on similar problems today, probably because it is relatively simple to implement. It would be interesting to see if something like a Markov model, or even word pairs, would be better at predicting authorship. There must be a massive amount of work on sentence construction from artificial intelligence research, as it would help a lot in interpreting written work.
