3. As much as possible keep discussion related to literature or its creation/critique. Philosophy threads should preferably pertain to a direct written source (this definition's flexible in anticipation of wat ppl like 2 use these boards 4), branching out accordingly. /lit/ boards regularly serve as catch-awls for "social science" discussion, which suffices in moderation but doesn't excuse eschewing conversation about the board's chosen topic + its baseline medium (writtan + reedan).

Good weekend my friends,

I tried to find a way to show my randomizer results but I couldn't figure out how and I was ill prepared and didn't write it out properly. Anyways, their weeks pick was Eugene Onegin by Pushkin.

>The story is told by a narrator (a lightly fictionalized version of Pushkin's public image), whose tone is educated, worldly, and intimate. The narrator digresses at times, usually to expand on aspects of this social and intellectual world. This narrative style allows for a development of the characters and emphasizes the drama of the plot despite its relative simplicity. The book is admired for the artfulness of its verse narrative as well as for its exploration of life, death, love, ennui, convention, and passion.

Now the pdf is not the Nabakov translation which is what was requested but I could not find the ebook for that.

This is a shorter novel (thank goodness), essentially I don't want to pressure you all into concluding each novel on time but at least a solid list will be built and we can read on our own time.

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

He stared at that ass. Longingly, contemplatively, lovingly.
To Louis the ass seemed to represent


power, wild and primal, and he wanted that power.
No, he wanted it on him. On his chest, and on his face. All over him. He wanted to feel it's weight crushing and constricting his weak body. He wanted to be enslaved, to that fat black ass.

The ass in question belonged to a man by the name of


Peter Stetson. Mr Stetson was not in fact a man of the black persuasion, as you may have assumed. He was however, the owner of the world's blackest ass.


He nurtured the ass every day, with fresh coatings of pitch and tar.


And was paid healthily from Louis' fortune.
You see, Louis, despite his great fetishizing, and social reach, could not bring himself to invite into his home, a real Africanoid individual, perhaps by the name of DelTray, or Malray, or Shanzambious. A man of stature, and booming voice. Of flared shirt, and pant, and nostril. A man sporting afro'd hair, and a bulge down there. A veritable King of the dark continent.
An anxiety gripped Louis, deep down inside, that the reality may not match the fantasy, and so deep inside his fortified estate, he built this facsimile of his desire, and every day he basked in it.

Today Peter's ass was particularly black, Louie had thought. Though

Are there any? I've read a bunch of the classic Conan clones, but is there anything from the last ten or twenty years?

"Literature"? What are you, gay? We'll have none of that nonsense in this thread. Come and talk about stories about cool things for men.
>nuuuuh, but my poetry
I will literally beat you up.

What are your favourite books? Who are your favourite writers? What are you reading now? What do you plan on reading, but have not yet gotten around to?

Give me recommendations of good hard-scifi books


"hard sci-fi" is one of those definitions I'm never sure I understand entirely. What marks the difference between pulp sci-fi and hard sci-fi seems kind of subjective to me. I've heard people refer to Alien as hard sci-fi, when to me that's a horror story about a rape monster.
I guess Arthur C Clarke is what would immediately come to mind though. Rendezvous with Rama in particular.


The Three-Body Problem like already discussed here, read before it become mainstream because they will make a film or tv show about it.

How to check literaturely if your story doesnt make sense

Are you just correct by default

What to read then


Charles Dickens is a good one to start with. He's a very well-rounded writer and his books are usually pretty accessible. A Tale of Two Cities, Bleak House, Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, and Great Expectations are his most popular novels but you can't go wrong with any of them.


Those are alright. But my genre is themathically different from those… i find it hard to use em


Just read popular works in the genre you want to write in I guess. I don't read much genre fiction (not because I think I'm too good for it or anything; I just haven't gotten around to it) so I don't know what to recommend.


>>3688 hm… what are things with alot of actions, epic fights or so

Writing somewhat realistic story but afraid of it being too fantastical… some fictional element but otherwise a realism of sorts… how do make sure the story isnt going wrong/no loop holes?
The setup is of present time so it might be easier to spot wrong things than scifi or fantasy

Former fanfiction writer here. I'm not sure what's the general consensus about fanfics or fan fictions here specifically, but I'm gonna ask anyway.

Which is better? Fanfiction dot net or Archive of Our Own? I know that there are differences such as AO3 allows scenes for mature audiences, while FF doesn't allow these kinds of scenes. That's all I know about differences between these two sites.

>You might try to post the same stories to both sites if you can.
It was so easy that I don't know why that occurred to me before. On uploading a Writer document with text format (bold, italic, etc), hopefully in AO3 it detects it as well as FF, since I've had experience with FF before. But I'm sure that's another topic.

Thank you kindly for the reply.


>Former fanfiction writer here.
post it


My coworker has been writing a continuous fanfiction since the 80s, and has boxes and boxes full of the same story. Im convinced its the longest story ever written and its full tilt. Captain Picard, Wonder Woman, countless playboy models, all the Dragon Ball Z characters. I am waiting for him to die and I plan to rob his house but alas that could be another 20 years.


That sounds legitimately kind of fascinating in such a way that it would be a shame if it was lost to the world. See if you can convince him to start uploading it to the internet.

I'm going to hold you to that anon. You'd better find the goods.
