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).
4. Poasts awn this board are occasionally harvested foar submissions ean2 the board magazine, THE /LIT/TYZEN'S FEUILLETON (collective issues interred herein: https://mega.nz/folder/vh5ilKLZ#6AuBFAfWUYlBdr_ob1j5KQ) - if you do not desire your poasts 2 evur find their waie ean2 the feuilleton, please note in the subject phield oar body "NF". Submit werks 2 [email protected] eef 1 soe desires.

This serves as a haberdasherized nu hoam ov duh /lit/erary loam for collective /lit/izens blasted to the four winds after the 'kunpocalypse. Preservation and perseverance provides the utmoast value in prestige-emptied pallet-towns lyk our parochial neck ov duh wouds, so pick your patois and commit to poastean-novelly pashtunwali - or simply enjoie the livean archives, thrivean n growean b4 ur eyes.

/lit/ will inevitably remain a slow board, so post appropriately & enjoy your stay.

B.O. OP EDIT: VIEW THE /LIT/PENDIUM HERE - https://mega.nz/folder/ThhnnayI#T30OHb3sHifcmVzLlnkYZg

Today begins a new chapter into the /lit/club. I made a fateful mistake by choosing the subject for the first nomination (Book Published 2 Years Ago) because of those bastards at the FBI. There are different resources vying for the vacancy filled by such a great site and I found one called

annas-archive.org which indexes a bunch of shadow sites.

Anyways without more stalling tactics. I present the list for this season and the nomination: World of Wonders

Thank you everyone as usual and I look forward to your tastes.

ANIMAL PLANET is the next theme, books centered around animal characters and their environment.

Let's go, let's make this board more alive and helpful to anons. Depending in your reply I'll be buying some books from these authors.

Is William Faulkner really good or not? Should I buy his stuff? Does he deserve a Nobel?

Is Ivan Gontcharóv good?

Is Le Rouge et le Noir by Stendhal overrated?

Is 11/22/63 by Stephen King "good" by his standards? I need to be an americanmutt boomer to enjoy it?

Are Ken Follett and Robert Musil pretentious shit for midwits?

Is Mark Twain underrated?

Is Haruki Murakami really the best Japanese modern writer or just the one by beloved by westerns?

New Armand White take about Stephen King.

During this month, I read for the first time The Long Walk and I'm close to finishing Thinner (73 pages left), both published by Stephen King when he used his pseudonym as a Richard Bachman.

I recommend everyone here to read The Long Walk, is actually good, not perfect, but even the typical patterns you find in so many of his books are less boring in this book. He supposedly wrote the book when he was 19 years old, but it's pretty obvious that he massively revised and changed a few things in the novel before it was published.
I found the book to be a solid allegory about the life of men as well as the Vietnam War. The characters are great, even the ones you're supposed to hate.
I give it a solid 4.5/5

Thinner is more liberal, focusing on the "corruption" and filth of the small white and wealthy New England communities and how gypsies are treated. If you can stomach that liberal tone, the book does have some nice stuff, especially the bromance among the protagonist, a descendant of Irish and an Italian who's a medbvll.
The protagonist is more "eloquent" and articulate than I imagined, as I've only watched the movie in the past and thought he was more goofy, some of his reflections are good and some of the other characters he's encountered so far are colorful and interesting.


I finished reading Thinner. I'm not sure how I feel about the book now that I've finished it. I knew how the story ended, but still.
I would say the prose isn't bad, I usually like Stephen King prose, isn't eloquent or poetic, but neither is it too simple and lacking in detail, or makes you feel like you're dragging through the pages.

As always, I think King really fails to deliver surprises and if you know him well enough some things in his works are quite predictable and personally that's my biggest criticism of any of his work, especially since I'm someone who has a good talent for figuring things out and reasoning based on a few clues and patterns.

I think the book overall had a bad passing, half the book was construction that ended up becoming unnecessary, I think the story took too long to move forward and when it did it was too fast.

The protagonist was a mix of someone determined and intelligent with careless and idiot, especially after getting help from his italian bro.

For anyone wanting to read online https://thinner.bib.bz/


Does anyone here is familiar with Scott Westerfeld, David S. Goyer and Stephen Graham Jones?
If so, would you recommend them for the anons?


Is Ursula K. Le Guin actually a good writer or just praised for being a woman? People are always recommending her.


I'm reading Mistborn, is actually good for a modern fantasy.

He's meh at best and "shilled" at lot for being a "save" belt to force kids and teenagers to read, while also being in the Marxist side of the things.


Cormac McCarthy isn't a "genius" and his works are really overrated. Blood Meridian is 3/5 at best.


Poetry is indeed pure trash, any guy who likes it is a massive red flag.


Becky Chambers is the best sci-fi author in decades and the chuds are afraid of her talent.

I happen to be the fucker but in the wake of economic-collapse induced isolation; it should ought to be in the real, and 2021-IQ-tested VIQ227 analysis, aught; have too formalizedly-in-set an extraneous-third-personage going on to properly direct as a personally phrased inquiry.

The description pretty much sets (a self-written synopsis) an intellectual pre-lude the bugger's internal thought processes.

Also, as an example of his only recently interesting conversational discourse with a member of channed elites, the operator of the new location 789chan lolcows on alogs.space's new equivalent:


Check logfile.

He has previous works in White Nationalism which have since disappeared for hosts.

He was once reputed in it, before transitioning to primordial pre-feminism of the Jucheist flavour, disguised as first-feminism of the Soviet flavour.

Only Travis Westphall (the host of the file) would have the lack of intellect to believe this, however. A literally-diagnosed (at state-federal levels as opposed to the prison local authority cooked up garbage of Autphag's latest deets as a psychopathic retard of the 35th verbal percentile) 35th verbal percentile mental fraud although faithful connoisseur of his insights and deepest of outsider-intellectual insights.

Rewarded (formerly) a PhD. in North Britain, and possibly Argentina on a switching-stories basis and now-gangster-occupied institution basis. In any case, it G-K (Glenn-Kincaid grade-reading complexity) ranks complexitously as much.


This is completely unreadable word salad. I have no idea what this thread is about nor what you are trying to say.


Correct. Now would people stop pretending to have forgotten him?

Okay, very based trips. The Ramones and Ramon won.


Why is it that you delete the Ramon porn within minutes but leave child pornography up for hours?
