Due to a DMCA Takedown Notice filed by Hachette UK, Alastair Reynolds' Revelation Space has been removed and banned from being posted.

Due to a technical fuckup (by way me pressing the wrong fucking button), all posts by that user have also been removed. My apologies on that front.

I have come into possession of a 5 book series of unpublished memoirs.

They are very interesting to me, but they are written in a style that I think is probably a divisive "love it or hate it" thing.

I am attaching the first book of the five.

This find has made me interested in what other "secret" or unpublished works might be out there somewhere. If you are in possession of or are aware of any such thing, I am interested to hear about it.

Also if you read the attached book, I would be interested in your thoughts on it. It's an odd artifact.

Hipster Slut 16/10/06(Thu)09:18 No. 17611

I just finished the first book, and I'm still undecided as to whether I like the style or not. It's a bit eerie though, because it reads a lot like my diary in its basic structure and prose. I'm tempted to call it a refined stream of conscious, but it has more of a narrative thrust than SOC. I'll admit that I got too wrapped up in the narrative to give the style much close scrutiny. Though after finishing this, I have gone and read some of the essays on his site and a few of his articles elsewhere, and I think his style has grown on me.

I'd certainly like to read more if you wouldn't mind dropping the rest of the series here, or a link to where I can find them.

Hipster Slut 16/10/16(Sun)15:13 No. 17613

I'll second the request for the rest. I remember reading bits and pieces of what he was working on back in the '00s, but never saw it come together into a finished book (or five books, as the case may be).

So I have "A Companion to the Literature of German Expressionism" and it pains me that it talks a lot about writers and books I will never get to read because they're untranslated.

What does /lit/ think? Anyone else read it? Anyone here that reads german has read any works by writters that are considerated expressionist?

Where can I find this anarchists cookbook in an epub format? Reply with a link plz. Thanks anons!

Hipster Slut 16/09/16(Fri)09:42 No. 17607

It may not be worth your time. When I was a kid I found the original in a first printing at a book store in LA. Read every page, then started thinking about it. Read up on it later, found that most of it is complete and utter nonsense to the point that many people think its actually dis-information to basically stop people from actually doing anything. You are better off reading the guerilla warfare pamphlets the military produces and the eco-terrorist handbooks the original earth first guys produced in the 90's. Same theme as the anarchists cookbook but with an actual focus on fucking industrial corporate shit up.

I actually hadnt read that in a while, and look here it is free...

Does anyone have links for free pdf downloads of William Gibson's bridge trilogy? Any or all just would like to read those books again and am very poor. Any help is most appreciated.

Gibson is here:

Thank goodness for the "look inside" feature. I don't think it is very good. Stop using so many commas coz that's not how they are supposed to work.

Why are some people so infatuated with Lovecraft? He is probably the most overrated horror writer ever.

He is basically emulating Hindu mythology and name drops 40 000 different gods while building some pseudo-imaginative netherworld where everything boils down to madness and hurr nothing makes sense durr. Pretty much every neckbeards wet dream besides watching anime.

He is so overrated it isn't even funny. His autistic way of writing lacks depth and mainly appeals to the same kind of people that read Harry Potter fanfiction.

Hipster Slut 16/06/03(Fri)16:57 No. 17588


What kind of depth do you expect from a genre writer of pulp fiction? Lovecraft was never trying to write high literature, but he managed to write a series of stories that directly inspired a whole subgenre of horror, and indirectly inspired a shit ton of other authors.

He doesn't reveal any "universal truths" or other bullshit English Majors tell other people to justify spending money on their shitty degree.

But he's a fucking pulp author.

He doesn't have to.

Hipster Slut 16/06/03(Fri)17:34 No. 17589


Who said anything about universal truths? H.P Fedoracraft is a stale writer. The man constructs stories that only exerts shallow and meek environmental descriptions.

Autistic and hollow cascades of adjectives piled on top of each other.

File RAW-_Cosmic_Trigger_Vol_I.pdf - (3.89MB , RAW- Cosmic Trigger Vol I.pdf )

two points to this thread. the first is to collect books by this author. i've read several and have a few physical copies, but only this one digital book.

the second point is to ask if anyone has suggestions to authors akin to this. i truly love this style. the way he writes really enthralls me, he throws my head around and always drops it in confusion while i'm strung along behind an erratic story line. BUT, better than his more novellas are these on consciously implemented brain change. the cosmic trigger series, especially this first book, really made me slow down and think through the long ramifications of his words, and they'd appear in my life the next day (what the seeker seeks...). no book has ever quite held my attention, even while not reading it, as those of Wilson.

Do you have Cosmic Trigger III in electronic format?

Hipster Slut 14/05/25(Sun)03:33 No. 17187

i'm excited to read from a gnostic perspective. i've not had a lot of exposure to it. tho i do desperately love RAW's agnosticism in the face of each chapter he wrote. i love how it spills over in every sentence because, if he's not committed to any belief, every phrase holds doubt and he may be lying or truthing and never says which. it keeps me doubting and investigating and believing and then striking down that belief, my assumptions proving my foolishness
thank you, the list is nice. joyce was an obvious one, RAW couldn't stop talking about ulysses (or something like that) so i've been looking for that book.
i've not found his super early stuff. the earliest i've read thus far is the cat trilogy. as for the pubes, i wouldn't have said obsession, tho i've not read enough to truly know. he does seem to focus on some obscure peripheries when his prose gets erotic. but i still like it. by highlighting what's normally glossed over, i stay more engaged with the narrative and envision his painting a lot better. for example, in Masks of the Illuminati, if he had just done the usual 'lola is hot and lithe, skin and breasts, etc' i would've just kinda had a 'yeah yeah yeah' in my head and, while i'd still have read the words, the paragraphs as a whole would have been empty.

Anybody got a copy of "The Magic Fart" by Piers Anthony, acclaimed author of the xanth light novels? I just finished pornucopia and need more jousing cock demons on ice cream mountain. For those who have not read the series that was not a joke. There's on the 7ch server so I'm hoping somebody here has the sequel.

Pic somewhat related.
