I said excuse the Spanish because the Saramago book and the Gaiman book were translated to Spanish.

And yeah, so far I'd say it's the best book I've read from him (although I've only read Blindness and Seeing). It reminds me of The War of the End of the World by Mario Vargas Llosa in many ways, which is a book I love. Surprisingly enough, the way he presents the events leading up to the crucifiction and Jesus' own life are fairly... Christian, in a way. A surprise considering he was a notorious atheist.

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
Ann Coulter - In Trump We Trust

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.

Finally knuckled down and got some momentum re-reading The Book of the New Sun. It's just so fuckin' dense that I never get more than a few chapters in before I hit a depressive patch, give up on reading for a week or so, and never get back into it, but this time I just got that shit done.
The structure annoys me from time to time, there's too much jumping around in the narrative - like, 'The Claw of the Conciliator' begins some time after 'The Shadow of the Torturer' ends, with no explanation of how the characters got to where they are or what happened between then and now. Then 7 chapters later, there'll be one sentence, an off-handed remark, like Wolfe just realized that he never explained what happened and is hand-waving the discrepancy away.
That said, it's still one of the best books I've ever read.

Reading Raw Spirit by Iain Banks. It's bittersweet; wonderfully warm writing on subjects I deeply enjoy and a more personal look into Iain's mind than his fiction. But he's dead and I've read all but one of his books. There'll never be another new one to read, after this.
It's hard to binge it: much like the whisky it's about, it's best enjoyed a little at a time so it can really be savoured.

I recently bought a book of translations of Old English poetry and am enjoying it a lot. I used to read a lot of REH as a kid (Conan, kull, Solomon) and a lot of the poetry in this collection reminds me of the heroic adventure type poetry that REH wrote.

Do you guys know of any recommendations for other poetry along these lines? Narrative poems that deal with battles, traveling, exotic lands, etc. I'm mostly familiar with the epics like Homer, Gilgamesh, Beowulf, Theogony, etc but I'm looking for poems that are more in the shorter formats.

As I've grown many philosophers have influenced my thinking up until I reached Buddha. I've been a fan of Plato, Max Stirner, Kierkegaard, Schopenhauer, Epictetus, Confucius, and Nietzsche.

But through Buddha I encountered Nagarjuna. From Nagarjuna I discovered Tsongkhapa.

There's no going back once you've reached the pinnacle of thought. Nagarjuna showed that all can be negated. Tsongkhapa showed that negation does not mean a new position is being posited. Now I'm studying the 'Awareness and Knowledge' literature present in the monastic community. The different types of thought and mind. I'm grateful to have the monastics of the Gelug tradition in my area and being open to helping discuss and understand these incredibly difficult topics.

That's interesting! Do say more

I'm just starting to get into some Buddhism, the idea of cultivating Bodhicitta appeals to me. It's like that universal love for mankind that Jesus talked about, but without all that higher power taint. There are also practical exercises for how to attain it, where as in Christianity we were just told to love our smelly neighbor, we were never told how on earth to do that.

Anyone writing? Post what you're writing and get ideas/feedback

I'm working on a uncanny vally book where a guy gets stranded in a weird town. Unsure why, and it's really not progressing trying to tie things together like why the town is coo-coo. NFI what I'm doing at this point.

Trying to develop a narrative on the uncertainty of a lot of our society and how it effects us as spiritual beings. Internet, commodification of culture and existence, the black hole of drugs, crime, ideology. Thinking of tying it into a source portal that is corrupting the townspeople and a man has to struggle to try and survive and flick the switch off on this portal before it and the townspeople get him.

Three kings and a jack, traveling down the road.

I close my eyes
Only for a moment and the moment's gone
All my dreams
Pass before my eyes; a curiosity

Same old song
Just a drop of water in an endless sea

Crumbles to the ground though we refuse to see

Don't hang on
Nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away
And all your money won't another minute buy

Amazon is complete shit these days. More than half the time shit shows up late anymore. And 90% of the books I've ordered in the past 4-5 years have showed up damaged because they can't be bothered to package books properly. They used to shrink rap all their books to cardboard which was excellent for shipping. Now it's either a cheap plastic bag or they just throw the book loose into a box that's 5x as big as the fucking book.

And yeah, I've gotten editions of books that are completely different than what was advertised. One time it wasn't even the same fucking publisher. Createspace which is amazons house imprint is a fucking joke too, I got a copy of the gadfly that was literally a copy and paste from Gutenberg.

Fuck Amazon if you weren't sure where I was going with this.

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?

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.

I'm slowly getting through Robert Fisk's "The Great War for Civilization". He's an awesome war correspondent who does his best to remain neutral in his assessment of the middle east, its history of foreign interference and the consequences of such interference. It's not too dry as a lot of it reads more like his own memoirs than a standard history book.

Interesting, I never really looked into what that term meant. I'm surprised that people say "painstaking" regularly enough that it's become a source of jimmie-rustling for you.
I get really fatigued by people throwing around words like "spiritual", "blessed", "holistic", and the like, particularly if used to denote one thing or action as "more spiritual" than another. It isn't these words themselves that irritate me but the smug attitude that often seems to surround them.
These conversations also seem to involve a lot of fancy language and references that one doubts the speaker understands to any meaningful degree.
Certainly I'm guilty of this myself, but more often in writing than in daily conversation (as this post is likely evidence of).

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.
