If this post receives 30 pledges of interest in the next month, I'll start organizing one.

One book a month, and I'll take suggestions.

I'll announce each upcoming month's book in advance, so you will have extra notice on what will be discussed (I know how slow this place is).

Not sure if this is the right thread to request this, but does anyone have the English translated Tenchi Muyo light novels, or Kajashima doujins? Been searching for those for ages. Also, any Aliens, Terminator, Predator novels would be good. Had someone recommend them to me. In return, have this link to a torrent I just found which contains a bunch of novels, and a lot of D'n'D stuff (just tick off the stuff you don't want). There's all kinds of good stuff in there, including Asimov, Zelany, Niven, Herbert, along with the expected D'n'D novels.

Hey, /lit/. I'm going to start attending a class on Thomas Pynchon soon. I've already read through The Crying of Lot 49 and Bleeding Edge. Gravity's Rainbow is next on the chopping block for me. I've skimmed through it, and I can already say that it's gonna be a bumpy ride. I'm looking for all the critical material I can find in regards to it. That being said, I'm especially on the lookout for the Gravity's Rainbow Companion by Steven C. Weisenburger. Does anyone have it and would they be willing to share?

i'm particularly stupid, so i had to read GR about six times before i caught on to what it was about.

the thing that throws most people is, it doesn't follow the 'hero's journey' plot. i won't give it away, but it weirded me the hell out the first time i finished it. i can appreciate what he was doing now, and it's a little like building an incredibly ornate and perfectly crafted bridge that goes half way across a river then twists and goes straight up.

26/M. Can someone recommend a book on how one would become an alpha fucking male? I'm too generous and nice. I want to learn how to not give a fuck. And how to talk to women because I have absolutely no game.

you should read a book called The Naked Ape. It'll be useful to you.

I have come into possession of a 5 book series of unpublished memoirs.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This find has made me interested in what other "secret" or unpublished works might be out there somewhere.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.

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.

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.

I've just got to say, man, I'm very fucking disappointed in you. If you were to make this thread any better it would actually involve you reading the books you're talking about. Throughout reading this thread I've come to the conclusion that you really don't know what you're talking about. Everyone's been saying it's fine you don't like him, but you keep on using the same bait and the same counter-argument no matter what anyone says. You're clearly just doing this as a way to get people reacting to it and giving you buzz and attention and seriously you're a scumbag for this shit. When all your argument boils down to is "I don't like this style of writing" then the truth becomes much simpler: If you like Lovecraft, you can read Lovecraft. If you don't like Lovecraft, you can avoid reading Lovecraft. You don't need me to tell you that. You also don't need me or any other Anon to help you make that decision. But seriously, go fuck yourself.

Anybody have a pdf copy of this wonderful book? I use to have it on my PC, but I seem to have deleted it a while back on accident.

I just read this- I'll start off by saying that I really liked it just for the feel of Dostoevsky in my head. However, I'm a little conflicted as to whether or not Joseph Frank's interpretation is a good one. Conventional wisdom says D. was just almost mindlessly rebelling against nihilism and rational egoism (think what's to be done), but this guy says it was a deliberate parody of those ideas, and stemmed from a logical examination of radically extending the impacts of science. Can anyone offer clarity as to what D. was more likely doing. I'd appreciate it.

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.
