Daosism is one of the interesting religious and philosophical trends from China. I prepare materials for my paper connected to this trend. I apply for help to uk.edusson.com

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.
http://www.mediafire.com/file/alzrfumev6fnur3/BOOKS.zip

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.

Is there a sci-fi book out there that gives off a feeling like the one pic related film gives? If yes, please recommend me some.

The Stand honestly comes to mind. For much of its length it's too directed and eventful to have that vibe, but for dozens and sometimes hundreds of pages at a time it involves very small groups of people moving through empty country and confronting various mysteries and hazards, always with some far off goal they don't quite understand.

Very minor spoilers: The outbreak section of the book ends around page 200, and there's one very difficult journey through empty land near the end of the book.

I'll add that the first Dark Tower book does not have this feel at all even though it's also about one, two, maybe three people moving slowly and sometimes aimlessly through a wasteland. This is probably because it's peppered with interesting and dramatic flashbacks, and the scenery is too interesting. The Stand has a mundane quality about it, mostly familiar settings.

You might also enjoy Winterlong by Elizabeth Hand, though in addition to the stalking there's a lot of drama that plays out in the ruined museums and other landmarks of Washington, DC and the surrounding area.

What did you think of Roadside Picnic?

I’m thinking of leaving my office job with the police force for a job in the health department. Can you pimp my resignation letter? Here’s what I’m thinking:
“You asked on the way back from DFO why I don’t want to work for the dept health, and I’ve been wondering that even since. Since it is about the meaningful of my work, and what could be more meaningful for me than doing the good work like police, and I’ve realised that for me it really is the dept health. Even though I might not have a job there after 12 months, I want to give it a go.”

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.
