Requesting Legend of the Galactic Heroes Volume 1
Where can I find this anarchists cookbook in an epub format? Reply with a link plz. Thanks anons!
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...
Here is the whole library of that stuff
I have come into possession of a 5 book series of unpublished memoirs.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This find has made me interested in what other "secret" or unpublished works might be out there somewhere.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.
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:
Site can be a bit sluggish, so have patience.

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.
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.
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.
, 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?
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.
Are any of you familiar with the Inheritance series of books?
I am thinking of a passage describing why there must be a balance between spellcasters and soldiers in an army.
I searched the books for keywords, but came up empty.
I can't remember the exact location, but I believe it is something like this: You need enough mages to protect the soldiers from other mages. You also need enough soldiers, or the enemy soldiers will just come kill your mages while they're locked in a wizards duel.
“Abandoning the subject, Oromis asked, “How would you kill with magic?”
“I’ve done it many ways,” said Eragon. “I’ve hunted with a pebble—moving and aiming it with magic—as well as using the word jierda to break Urgals’ legs and necks. Once, with thrysta, I stopped a man’s heart.”
“There are more efficient methods,” revealed Oromis. “What does it take to kill a man, Eragon? A sword through the chest? A broken neck? The loss of blood? All it takes is for a single artery in the brain to be pinched off, or for certain nerves to be severed. With the right spell, you could obliterate an army.”
“I should have thought of that in Farthen Dûr,” said Eragon, disgusted with himself. Not just Farthen Dûr either, but also when the Kull chased us from the Hadarac Desert. “Again, why didn’t Brom teach me this?”
“Because he did not expect you to face an army for months or years to come; it is not a tool given to untested Riders.”
“If it’s so easy to kill people, though, what’s the point of us or Galbatorix raising an army?”
“To be succinct, tactics. Magicians are vulnerable to physical attack when they are embroiled in their mental struggles. Therefore, they need warriors to protect them. And the warriors must be shielded, at least in part, from magical attacks, else they would be slain within minutes. These limitations mean that when armies confront one another, their magicians are scattered throughout the bulk of their forces, close to the edge but not so close as to be in danger. The magicians on both sides open their minds and attempt to sense if anyone is using or is about to use magic. Since their enemies might be beyond their mental reach, magicians also erect wards around themselves and their warriors to stop or lessen long-range attacks, such as a pebble sent flying toward their head from a mile away.”
“Surely one man can’t defend an entire army,” said Eragon.
“Not alone, but with enough magicians, you can provide a reasonable amount of protection. The greatest danger in this sort of conflict is that a clever magician may think of a unique attack that can bypass your wards without tripping them. That itself could be enough to decide a battle.
“Also,” said Oromis, “you must keep in mind that the ability to use magic is exceedingly rare among the races. We elves are no exception, although we have a greater allotment of spellweavers than most, as a result of oaths we bound ourselves with centuries ago. The majority of those blessed with magic have little or no appreciable talent; they struggle to heal even so much as a bruise.”
why would you care about anything in those trashpiles?
I posted this on 4chan earlier and didn't really receive much constructive criticism. I'm looking to improve vastly on my essay writing. This is not meant to be original. It was made specifically for criticism. (just starting and blowing it out my ass for now)
>tldr: unoriginal opinion, the pic. Fuck me hard edition.(USER WAS BANNED FOR THIS POST)
Sorry, but what did you just state? What was the point you were trying t make?
The most obvious criticism is the colloquial language:
>shove their own personal view
Obviously, if that is intentional then you can ignore that comment, but if this is meant for any sort of academic purpose, it will be instantly written off for this reason.
