Idk who these other authors are, but rip Ursula.

She did SF the way SF was supposed to be done:
And she was a master story teller.

Hell, Le Guin died?
Maybe there's a chance of some decent Earthsea adaptations to be made. I dunno what her stance on them were besides getting mad about the Ghibli flick.

Turning this into a General RIP thread until someone whose a big enough name to deserve a private thread passes away

RIP the guy who collects all the best sci-fi short stories every year.

Hey - do any of you remember an online monthly (or maybe quarterly) magazine that someone from /lit/ used to make years ago?

They would always post a thread on here asking for submissions and a lot of the work inside it was from /lit/ users.

I'm asking because I submitted some work that made the magazine years ago but lost all my copies of that work.

Anyone help is much appreciated.

Thank you for taking the time to read my message and reply with a useful link.
It really does mean a lot to me.
Even if it doesn't seem that way where you.
You had no reason to read my question and spend time finding a possible answer, but you did it anyway. I might not have even looked at your reply. I could have posted this thread and then never looked at this board, website any of it again.
Sometimes I realise how much I take places like this, and the internet in general, for granted. To have a connection with someone somewhere living some life, and for them to respond to you - with no idea who you are, where you're from, what you've done. It really is beautiful. (inb4 it's the 2cp speaking and my English is sloppy for a lit forum)

It was a short story I wrote a while ago, when my mind and thoughts were in a different place. Dystopian/utopian (is there a word for something that can be one or the other depending on how characters within the story are experiencing the world they live in, or additionally how the reader interprets the world - cold, desolate, even the moments of planned sadness come across and very strange. Hoping to get back into that style of writing/mind frame

The movie Captain Fantastic inspired me further more to live with my Family in co-existence with nature. Im not interested in society at all.

Movie plot: Ben Cash, his wife Leslie and their six children live in the Washington wilderness. Ben and Leslie are former anarchist activists disillusioned with capitalism and American life, and chose to instill survivalist skills, left wing politics, and philosophy in their children – educating them to think critically, training them to be self-reliant, physically fit and athletic, guiding them without technology, demonstrating the beauty of coexisting with nature.

I explored some works from Erich Fromm and other humanists.
Does one of you know literature with humanism + naturism?

"Country Wisdom & Know-How: Everything You Need to Know to Live Off the Land" and "In the Shadow of the Sabertooth e-book: A Renegade Naturalist Considers Global Warming, the First Americans and the Terrible Beasts of the Pleistocene" both sound interesting. Stuff about Earthship Biotecture is interesting.

Popular during the heyday of ELF & ALF Primitivism theorized that humanity's hope was a return to hunter-gatherer systems, but its pretty much a joke now because of its impracticality.

We won't get Winds Of Winter this year, but the fat fuck managed to churn out the first book in a 2 book series about the history of Westeros, basically his version of Silmarillion.

So, who is gonna finish the books for him after he kicks the bucket? Steven Erikson is what I want, but many think Joe Abercrombie will get the gig, who I am not so hot on.

Yeah I'm sure that whenever they do finally get published I'll have to go back and read the last few books because all the deviations of the show have probably fucked up my memory of the story.

Yeah it's pretty clear that what he is doing is trying to add as much as possible to the universe and to his legacy before he goes. He probably has quite a few books all outlined and 75% written but he's trying to pump out as much as possible. Can't really blame him for that though I do resent that I've been waiting so long.

Sandor Clegane died and you need to accept that already.
This isn't an anime and not everyone who doesn't get their head chopped off/squished is coming back to fly through the vacuum space using the Force. Some people just die between the lines and then continue to be dead.

Hello /LIT. I need some help finding a book.

I remember this book from my younger days. It was one of those search and find books ala"Where's Waldo?" and "I Spy". These books were a hot commodity in grade school. This one was a sort of Waldo ripoff. It featured a lady that went on vacation to exotic places and i think you had to help her find souvenirs for her friends on a cruise ship at some point? i think she wore shades. If any of that helps.

Also i was hopeing to find an animal hidden picture book that had a backyard scene where you could see underground to insect colonies and find like 50 ants. Brutal

It is really hard to image search these puzzles for free. i'm hoping i don't have to go to the kids section of my public library to browse the puzzle books all coked up to get to the bottom of this.

Short stories are good bite sized wisdom. I collect a lot of the annual best of collections and usually find them interested in sex.

I’m teaching a freethinkers class with Thoreau, Catcher in the Rye, and One Flew over the stallionoo’s Nest. I would like to find other short stories, specifically by women, because the class is already heavily male authored and male protagonist.

I am already thinking of The Yellow Wallpaper and Kate Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour.” Any other recommendations of free thinker short stories ? Or poetry?

I would really recommend "Bloodchild" by Octavia Butler.

Seconding the person above recommending Le Guin as well.

"Lost in the Funhouse" by J Barth is phenomenal. It's a series of short stories that are all somehow tied together. The first story "Night-Sea Journey" is really powerful, would recommend at least popping that open.

I'm looking for cyberpunk. Not that cyberpunk with drugs, implants, AI, gunfights and whatever. I need something with a lot of communications via Internet, crafting devices and related things. Closest ones I've read, are "When Sysadmins Ruled the Eart," by Corry Doctorow, and "Cryptonomicon," by Neal Stephenson. The first one presented a lot of communications, and the second one had a lot of cryptographic stuff and devices. It may be not really a sci-fi, but even some kind of slice of life, I guess.

Sounds like you want to read more Doctorow and also probably some non-fiction. Try 'Makers' by him and Underground by Dreyfus & Assange.
