Write about your absolute most indulgent fantasy. That's a good way to get to the core of what you like about life, or become a japanese LN writer.

I've FINALLY written my 3-part fantasy journey, /lit/.. I'm already looking for a publisher of adult adventure novels!

But before I get to the business part, I'd like to hear what you think on the series premise.. If /lit/ is interested in reading, I'll be more than happy to post the first 2 chapters as a preview.

It's a book series I started in high school titled 'Metalmorphicum'

Basically, the setting is a steampunk Earth where every human is born with the ability to bend/manipulate (like Aang) 1 substance that exists on the planet. The substance that you can control is determined by the last thing your laboring mother touched before your umbilical cord was cut...

So if she touched blood, then you can manipulate any form of blood outside or inside someone's body. You could easilly kill one with blood-bending.

If she touched skin, you could (for example) rip the skin off your enemy's body strip by strip.

If she touched bone? Yikes, then I wouldn't wanna mess with you.

I almost gave up writing since there were so many characters and so many 'bendable' substances to remember. These included :

Gender bending would be possible too. Your world would be a LGBT paradise!

Does the ruling class try to exert control over what the mother touches? I mean, if they strictly policed and supervised childbirth they could effectively control the population - the upper echelons would touch something like bone or blood or whatever, thus making them the most physically dangerous class and helping them retain power (the same way European knights were all wealthy elites, or how only the rich could become Japanese Samurai. Throughout history, the military power has always been kept in the hands of the rulers). Furthermore, they could control the labour force. If they needed more lumberers, they could make the mother touch wood. If they need more smiths, they could make her touch metal, etc. You could have a Brave New World style caste system but maybe a few newborns inevitably slip through the cracks, forming the basis for conflict between the society and our protagonist.

What type of tone are you going for? From the description it sounds kinda psychological and metaphorical, in which case you probably don't need to flesh out the world in as much detail.

I was able to find a copy of A Canticle for Leibowitz hosted on this board, and now I'm seeking a digital version of the sequel, Saint Leibowitz and the Wild Horse Woman. Does anyone have a copy they could provide? I'm not picky about the file type, and I'd be most grateful.

So I came across this random book on Amazon. It wasn't bad, but seems like nobody else has ever heard of it or the author and I can't comment it with anybody. Now I'm waiting for a second part after a cliffhanger that god knows if it'll ever come and thinking I may have wasted my money. Any thoughts?

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.

Anyone have any of the A-Team books or know where to get them. A bunch are written by Charles Heath.




20th Century History books General thread Hipster Slut 14/11/06(Thu)03:32 No. 17352 [Reply]

Note: I apologize if the "attention grabbing" picture in this post offends anybody, I will explain why I used this picture at the bottom of this post.

This is a thread for books and (youtube) videos on the history of the 20th century, focusing especially on the period of chaos and world-wide warfare that started with the Russo-Japanese war in 1904 and ended with the fall of Communism and the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact in 1991.

I would like the focus of this thread to be on what professional historians call "Primary Source Documents", which means the books were written by people who were actually there and were actually involved in what was happening at the time. So good examples of the kind of books I'm looking for are:

(1) A book on World War 1 or World War 2, written by an actual general or soldier who fought in WW1 or WW2 (ideally explaining things such as the cause of the war, why they were fighting, etc).

(2) A book on a political doctrine written by the founder of the doctrine (i.e. a book on Stalinism written by Stalin, a book on Fascism written by Mussolini, a book on National Socialism written by an actual German Nazi, etc. etc.).

(3) If the book isn't a primary source document itself, then its ok as long as the book has lots of scholarly footnotes and citations that can lead you to other primary source documents.

The book in the picture in this post is a book on economics that was written in 1919 by German economist Gottfried Feder, see:

File Feder-InterestSlavery-trans_Hadding_Scott.pdf - (639.89KB )

>>17352

Ok, attached to this post is an actual pdf of the book by Gottfried Feder that was alluded to in my first post (like I said before, I think reading this book is key to understanding the causes of World War 2).

This pdf book used to be hosted on archive.org but I think Hasbara attempted to take this book offline to censor it, and I am against the censorship of books (regardless whether the author was George Orwell, Gottfried Feder, or anybody else).

So I have attached a pdf of the Gottfried Feder book on "Breaking Debt Interest Slavery" to this post. More primary source documents on 20th century history (maybe some books on Marxism or Communism or American style liberal democracy and capitalism) will probably be uploaded in this thread later.
