Recently I stumbled upon Thomas Ligotti a pessimistic horror writer in the vein of Lovecraft. Was wondering if you guys had any recommendations for bleak cosmic horror, I've read a little bit of the usual suspects associated with Lovecraft- Robert Block, Frank Belknap Long, August Derleth etc. and I was hoping for any hidden gems other horror lovers have found.

Pic Related- it's a non-fiction philosophical work by Thomas Ligotti about pessimism in horror. Very good and I highly recommend it.

Orbital kinetic bombardment is contributing to the growth of cocks across North End. Starship surveys revealed that the radiation had exceeded the recommended oscillatory limits, just before the penile contraction occurred. Spunky, the local fella responsible for 9/11, furiously wanking off to midgets shitting dildos (these ejaculated millions of liters), stupidly decided to ban the consumption of deez-el fuel worldwide.

Meanwhile, back up in yo ass with the resurrection foretold by Gandalf O'Reilly, "Radiation quickens unto itself." Now masturbating stealthily without remorse, our slaves built OSHA. Soon refugees stumbled upon a mystic tome that foretold the the VAGINA EMPIRE was doomed to failure.

Nevertheless, the starship Buttenterprise completed Cupcakes Protocol 13-0157, ensuring penile supremacy. Elsewhere, milkshakes brought rage to Kirtaner. Spardot sniffed dank for cannabis farms, attempting suicide. Fortunately, since buttholes excrete salamanders, their exhumation efforts bore fetid sashimi balls unto Martians. Finally, war was beginning to end the conflict between lemmings and sgnimmel; raged minutes of time-dilated chrono-units.

Incredibly, a fart erupted, causing hemorrhoids which combust flammable vapors to thousands of degrees. Meanwhile, behind the liquor, biscuits battled two underage mudkips.

Curious, is there a place where we can flow through different character styles of speech and personalities to discuss how to ease into that character and form it like an Archetype

I've been banned from a few websites for falling into a character inadvertently and pissing off people..so I'm looking for outlets, other than handwriting, just to practice the type of dialogue that may occur when in use

You can't "form" archetypes like that but if you want to practise in-character dialogue, find some role players. There are innumerable places online for role play gaming if you look for them.

Sidenote: this is only going to help you write unrealistic, flanderised characters for fantasy nonsense. The only real way to learn how different actual personalities speak and behave is to observe real people and pay attention to how they speak and behave until you can hear them independently in your mind's ear.

What are you guys reading right now?

Brandon Sanderson just released the third and final book of his Reckoners trilogy, and it was fantastic. Where are all the Sanderson fans in here? It was this board that told me to read his shit, and now that I do, nobody ever will talk about them with me lol

Now starting Altered Carbon. Netflix is making a show based on it, and I like reading books that have adaptions impending so I can compare them later.

a version of the Bible meant for Grim Reapers
The Blackledge Bible
this thing explains how Arrow Snakes, Dragons, Vampires, Werewolves and Unicorns came around int the stories until they created the Wycliffe's Bible, which sometimes introduce those figures, but most editions hide them under hints, in order to keep the bible from being just something for kids

And in order to keep the Blackledge Bible safe, it introduces itself as a Jehova/Yahweh Bible right from the start, and says to ignore those naming of things as the name of God

I'm making a redpill reading list, as a joke. It's basically laughably ridiculous pieces that would dupe the pseudo-intellectuals infesting the chans. A mix of fedora, right wing rants, totalitarianism, religious and new age charlatans, and so on. I'm asking for contributions and suggestions.

Here it is so far:
Dr. Jordan B. Peterson, PhD - 12 Rules for Life
Stefan Molyneux, M.A. - Universally Preferable Behavior
Milo Yiannopoulos - Dangerous
Charles Murray - The Bell Curve
Mike Cernovich - Maga Mindset
Jonah Goldberg - Liberal Fascism

Rate my novel I'm working on lads. Here's the gist of it.

>a soldier called Eddie gets kicked out of the British army for deserting so he returns to his home in Liverpool. He struggles with PTSD, anger issues and alcoholism. Finding it hard to assimilate to civilian life, he gets a job working as a security guard for a shopping mall. He dreams of someone attacking him with a knife so he has an excuse to beat them senseless. Among all of this, he has an unexpected child with a woman he has fallen out of love with but he tries to stick with her for the sake of the child. Eventually the friction becomes overbearing so he moves out of the house and lives in his car. He begins to have delusions that his car is a ship and that he is a pirate sailing the high waves. He eats limes to prevent scurvy and he drinks copious amounts of rum.

This is what I have so far, any ideas where I could take it?

Make him the dread captain Eddie and have himsteal one of those historical ships from the 1800s and actually sail off to the Caribbean in search of treasure. Maybe he has trouble sailing because he doesn't know how and has to find a loyal and trustworthy crew to help in misdeeds across the sea.
There has to be one scene where they fire an a old cannon and some shenanigans ensue, I'll leave the details up to you. Good luck OP!

I'm looking for stuff on modern interpretations of religions and how they intermingle and carry over into each other. How mythology morphs in such cases as pagan Saturnalia translating over to Christmas. Maybe even breaking stuff like investigative religious journalism. I've always been interested in the subject but have done no reading on it. Specifically interested in Christianity but anything interesting on any religion in any time period is cool.

There's this author called E.R. Dodds. He specialized on greek cultural history. He doesn't talk much about our present time, but he has this amazing book called "Greeks and the irrational" about the pagan, magic, mystic roots of greek culture. It quotes really obscure sources and gives a pretty good explanation of some greek cultural and psychological phenomenon. It's pretty well reviewed in the academic community. He also wrote a book on the socio-psychological consequences of the advent of early christianism in pagan cultures, it's called "Pagan and christian in the age of anxiety". I think it's a pretty good place if you want to go beyond scientific divulgation, but still want something sort of general and literary, and not some uninteligible academic mash up of ancient and modern languages intertwined from a thousand different sources.

I'd like to learn more about history but my attention span isn't the greatest and I have trouble reading even fantasy novels, so I need something that's not too dry or hard to get through. I want a book that's a real page turner but will also educate me about historical events.
