NUMERO DULCE: 4 DA /lit/PENDIUM (aka BACKLAWG OV SUBMISSIONS), C THIS MEGA: https://mega.nz/folder/ThhnnayI#T30OHb3sHifcmVzLlnkYZg

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.


Any novel that has been banned at any point in time of its publication.

Ill do more Turtledove kino


Lest Darkness Fall, a 1939 novel about a guy who gets transported back in time to save the Ostrogothic Kingdom.

The Red Harvest was pretty kino. I wouldnt have been able to tell it was written in the 1920s. While the characters are slightly one dimensional I didnt see the plot coming and liked that the inital murder only took up like a quarter of the book and the femme fatale gets her comeuppance, and he may have done it I guess its got a sequel and possibly more so Im inclined to check those out at some point.
Its also pretty indicative that Dashielle would be a /tvch/ poster, pic related



this is for the alt his week. just letting you know…

I almost forgot this week. Hey!1776 is the winner, looks like an audiobook havent clicked it yet if its short Ill do a second.

I failed that, for the sake of retardation Im going to leave it up.

Doing a redraw, and next time Ill investigate the source material before ratifying my results.

LEST DARKNESS FALL is the true winner this week

Here is the book solo


Here is the book with others



File: 1629680862371.jpg (148.05 KB, 1200x838, 600:419, TrueWest-1.jpg) ImgOps Exif iqdb

For the Play theme Im going to nominate True West by Sam Shephard. In university I took acting classes and we had to do a scene from a play that the professor thought would fit our character, I was the younger brother and a friend was chosen to be the older brother. It was some scene in the early part where they are hatching a get rich quick or something, anyways I want to see what the professor thought of me. We got a 65% because my friend forgot his lines and I dropped out of university at the end of the semester.



Lest Darkness Fall was just like my shonen isekai adventures. The MC is a genius, he has a sidekick that calls him boss every sentence, the characters are just one dimensional tropes, he becomes king and defeats the evil villain, and he marries his childhood friend.

That being said it was fun and funny and the plot kept ticking throughout. My favourite parts are when he sleeps with his maid and the passage where he explicitly instructs to kill baby Mohammed The book is pretty edgy atheist at times but again Id reccomend reading it

Tis Pity Shes a Whore by John Ford wins. Looks good.

Next biweeks theme is Mystery which is pretty vague. So as long as theres intrigue or spooky elements Im sure it will be fine.

My initial delve into mystery books left me feeling kind of bleh but I found a good list to steal from. I didnt realize Japs love mystery so much. Ill provide a source for the book if it gets picked.
Tokyo Zodiac Murders by Soji
the Miso Soup by Ryū Murakami
All She Was Worth by someone
Goth by Otsuichi

Tis Pity was an interesting take, I cant tell if Mr. Ford is a supporter or at least tolerant of incest but regardless its nice to see thots get unabashedly btfo, especially that FUCKING BITCH Hippolyta.

Flicker: A Novel
>Flicker is a novel by Theodore Roszak published in 1991. The novel covers approximately 15-20 years of the life of film scholar Jonathan Gates, whose academic investigations draw him into the shadowy world of esoteric conspiracy that underlies the work of fictional B-movie director Max Castle.

Next TIME it's Non-Fiction Historicals, Primary Source

By primary source did you mean first hand accounts by someone taking about their experience? If so Alive Story of the Andes


I'm gonna go ahead and say this will be a 3 week at least piece. If anyone has objections you can raise them


Halfway through now, and its pretty /tv/ and I like that its kind of a unique mystery style, surprised it has less ratings than it does at the moment. The only thing I didnt like is that Castle directed an interracial full penetration scene but maybe there was religious connotations and its calling God black to piss off the twins.



> A Hangman's Diary: Being the Journal of Master Franz Schmidt, Public Executioner of Nuremberg, 1573-1617





What inspired the Deepthroat choice?


Learning about those Cathars and if your pope is named Innocent what could go wrong?

The Albigensian crusade

Ill do the next theme on Sunday, I finished Flicker and enjoyed it. I didnt care for the authors fetishism with Gilfs or chubby nerdgirls and it did fall into some trappings of a mystery novel (he connects with a lot of women), each piece of the puzzle comes a step at a time and its just too lengthy. I didnt see the ending coming and thought it was a neat take. The Kathars are a really great standin for the Jew, and he mentions WW2 and the Holocaust and concentration camps every so often and I think it was deliberate to either keep the Jews in the readers mind or perhaps as a penance for calling them out. His film descriptions were cool and I may have searched for Max Castle twice since it seemed like a real production.


sorry for the late reply, I was busy for a few days. the reson why i choosed ordeal, was because at the time i could only think of those two books that i consider were ghoulish; sense it's october and all. i only heard ordeal on a list of disturbing books, so i thought it would fit the bill (is my morals off kilter?) but upon later pounderings i thought of too more books to be considred on the randomizer:

>The Secret of Elena's Tomb




>the discovery of witches


the last one is very short though, so you can not inclueded it if you want.

Looks like Demons are back on the menu.

I checked it out a little bit and its fairly short so, feel free to select another, take a break or whatever. I personally will pair it like a glass of fine wine with Nuremberg Executioner.



Kinda reminded me of religious posters on imageboards.
Gonna nominate The Old Man and the Sea and that Hermann Melville short story about the 2 ships
I'll provide sources later


The Ghost Pirates by William Hope Hodgson

The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket by Edgar Allan Poe


I'd Benito Cerano, its short so I'll attach it if it wins to the runner up.


Old man and the Pea

Isnt somebody going to nominate poor Mopey Dick?


I'm almost done the executioner nuremberg diary, lotta schizos, lotta eye opening maybe the 1500s were kino. This week it's a classic with a spooky Halloween twist: The Ghost Pirates by William Hope Hodgson

NEXT TIME ITS CINEMA RX'S X2 (not sure how long they are)

I didnt watch this shitflick and I think this is the only way Ill be able to stomach it: Nomadland


That ghost story was awesome. I've never been on a ship like that but it's inspired me not to. Some characters did act irrationally and I don't understand the lingo or maybe i missed it but where is the captain? Is the second captain?


At the risk of samefagging the thread up I really reccomend Benito Cereno an excellent redpill material


Im looking but I just cant find a fun one or when I do I cant find it online

I took the first two, if you'd rather I redid it entirely for the second result that can be arranged.

Mccabe and ms. Miller


Next time in 2 weeks it will be something you have recommended to another but in itself have not actually read


A Day in the life of Ivan Ilyiovich (sp?)

Seiobo There Below wins

I nominated this one because I watched Satantango and Werkmeister Hatmonies and I told a coworker to read this one because it's the Hungarian author and relatively new.

THE PIPES ARE CALLING IS NEXT so I'll nominate Ulysses because why not?https://ca1lib.org/book/1641819/6c0f9c


The Horses Mouth

I found this link which I think you can peruse

I picked TP because of the Joudy-Judy debate and this is what it came up with so Im over it. David Lynch is a hack
