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.

Curious as to the methods people use to find books online.

To share, I use a Chinese app (iOS) named Dou Ding Shu Fang or "DocinBooks". It's green. Tends to have most titles I look for most of the time, but sometimes it's missing some.

Hi!

Does anyone have "The Ring of McAllister" in PDF? I've been looking for it for last hour and I still can't find it.

Thanks in advance.

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.

Lovecraft literature...it is boring as fuck. Not only that its not even really scary due to the fact that it constantly depends on two factors and that's pointlessness and madness.

The mystery starts, they discover great monsters of long ago or monsters are among us and dont even try to fight back cause they are hopelessly more advanced than us even though they are just fucking blobs of mesh that dont really ever do anything unless of course they scale down to our level to cause chaos but whatever.
He also plays with madness at the mere sight of these things or learning about them but it just comes off as silly to me as there is really no reason for this besides that theyre uber advanced and we are pointless, and yet nothing happens. Events that take place are usually isolated to a handful of characters to make it scary but whatever cause at the end of the day the blobs of madness are just whatever and the fear lies in that nobody is aware of them besides the ones who had the experience. But nothing ever happens even though there several of these entities so from now on I am going to assume the lovecraft characters who have these experiences are just that, insane. Yep the the whole lovecraft universe is just a hallucination tapped into by any of the main characters and what drives them insane is its own babble which is well represented as giant sentient blobs of madness.
And that basically describes lovecraft. So the next time someone makes a comment about cthulu I will respond with boat. If someone goes on about azathoth, i will think oh that blob in space that isnt going to do shit and whos form I could never comprehend so why bother.

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?

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.

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.

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.
