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.

Speaking about horror authors I do not know good of them. If you know it, can you recommend some horror authors? I like to read different fanfiction stories about Haloween for example. But I do not like to write such kind of stories by myself, because in college I often ordered essays on https://essayshark.com/

Its 1984 flipped upside down. In fact, Huxley was a friend of Eric Blair, the author eternally known as "George Orwell."

Most utopias have free will

Hipster Slut 18/11/08(Thu)19:06 No. 17912

I've asked myself this question so many times.
The people living in that world are completely brainwashed and stripped of their free will, yet they are having the time of their life: constantly indulging in carnal and material pleasures.

The Book that Made You a Reader Hipster Slut 18/10/17(Wed)16:26 No. 17903 [Reply]

The first book that enthralled you, the one you couldn't put down, and that made you an avid reader. This was it for me. The way the author you go from the perspective of a general, to describing an epic battle, to going to the story of your average soldier or sailor captured me and I've been an avid reader ever since.

Hipster Slut 18/10/31(Wed)13:35 No. 17905

This book looks new for me. I did not hear about it before. But want to read. It at once. I like to read novels by Charles Dickens. But I am college student, so I have not time for reading. But if I like literature I must to be perfect writer. But I am bad in it. So, I used help here https://essayshark.com/buy-cheap-essays.html for writing papers.

Cornelius Ryan spent his life writhing about World War II, and did so at a time when many of the political and military leaders were still alive, and his interviews with common foot soldiers were comprehensive as well. I got interested in it after researching my grandfather who served in the Pacific. When he came home he hid his old uniform away and never said anything about it so naturally I was curious. But I would have to put Ryan's novels and the old Time Life World War II series as the best accounts of World War II out there.

As a former 57.14%-er, I am obliged to suggest Greek classics and philosophers despite not actually having read them.
Just kidding - although stoicism is dope and I like Roman Imperial propaganda as much as the next guy (Meditations).
To be a little controversial, I suggest you start with things which you actually like instead of shunning the genre fiction ghetto.
In both of your cases it is impossible to suggest anything without knowing what you have already read. Were you dissatisfied with it? This is the best way to find new literature - washing away the foul or saccharine taste by figuring out who the author was raping and pillaging to make a quick buck. Soon you'll be more cultured than a bucket of yogurt, and you'll be full of literary factoids to impress people at, uh, parties or something. Yeah, sure.

Hipster Slut 18/07/20(Fri)13:10 No. 17895

Okay, lets see.
In the past few years of not reading, I had read 5 books all by one author, Robert Cormier, who's books I rather enjoyed. Recently, the novel to make me think that I should be reading more was Nabokov's Lolita. Since then, I read Perfume by Patrick Suskind, and I thought it was utter crap, and I do not have any access to English books currently, due to being overseas.
If you could suggest to me anything that could be of interest to me, I would greatly appreciate it, and I will definitely try reading anything that you suggest.

Thanks for Cormier - got interested skimming his works and grabbed an EPUB of The Chocolate War. Really needed this in my life five years ago.
Currently brain crippled post-dental surgery. I can confidently suggest only things I really liked from my own past several years of not reading. Very selfish memory - will take it for a jog and find more suitable offerings when meds wear off!
Ordered by train of thought:
- There Are Doors by Gene Wolfe
- The Forever War by Joe Haldeman
- Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson (Cryptonomicon is superb, and the writing is much better. Totally different books. However some people find this one to be completely unreadable!)
- Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs
- A Confederacy of Dunces by John K. Toole

I'm going throw my hat down and second your request for books to culture myself up. Was really just bluffing and repackaging advice I've received. Patricia Highsmith writes great suspense novels, check her out, I have EPUBS of all of these suggestions if you want. Sherlock Holmes holds up very well. It's interesting to watch Doyle's evolution, plus the mysteries are bite-sized.

I'd like to try sharing my story with stories. I wrote the story for myself in a way, and I've sat on it for a year, and feel that I should try sharing it with others.

It seems like places want shorter word counts. Are there any outlets for this?

I imagine most people know about it but if not, the Mobilism forums are a great place for downloading ebooks.. you can make requests as well and often will end up finding stuff there that you can't wrangle up anywhere else:

Here's how to convert Audible books into .MP3 files for yourself; please do consider providing your Audiobooks back in return.

The following .ZIP has two important applications in it and a folder titled "STEPS" with images; this is really easy to do.

0. Install the yellow Audible application. You won't need to do anything with this just yet; there's not even a sign- in.
Install the application named "BLACK" that looks similar. This is in German though we'll return to that.

1. Go to Audible.com .
To the far left it'll read "Library" and hovering over that reveals "My Books", click that.
Here there's a listing of all your books with misc details on them. Press the "DOWNLOAD" tab to the far right of each book.

2. Doing this will rigth away open the Audible application and start downloading a .AAX file to the Audible application itself.
When that finishes press the "Downloads Folder" button so you can find that .AAX file.

Message too long. Click here to view the full text.
