I don’t know about an encyclopedia but there are books written about famous authors and their writing styles. Ayn Rand (The Art of Fiction: A Guide for Writers and Readers) and Stephen King (On Writing: 10th Anniversary Edition: A Memoir of the Craft) wrote their own, as did some others. Albert Zuckerman (Writing the Blockbuster Novel) writes about a number of best selling fiction authors and the techniques they used. Your local public librarian should be able to help you find more information on famous authors.
