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.

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.

I have come into possession of a 5 book series of unpublished memoirs.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This find has made me interested in what other "secret" or unpublished works might be out there somewhere.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

I hemmed and hawed about uploading it since I had to do a bit of leg work on my own to get ahold of them in the first place and the selfish part of me likes having a rare thing and wants to make you work for it, but I like 7chan so I will cut you a deal. Leave an email address or other communication channel of your choosing and next time I come back around I will send them to you, or send you a link to a less public/more anonymous place where they can be retrieved.

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.

Besides, you don't just "become an alpha male". You just need to be incredibly arrogant and self-confident, attributes which aren't things you learn from a book.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

thoughts/contributions?

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
>>17182
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.
