what would be some recommendations? I have read the basics, Dracula and Frankenstein, but I want to get more deeply into the genre and the dark aspects of it, I also real liked BloodBorne if that means anything

Gothic sci fi this ones hard to pinpoint for me. Would cyberpunk fit into this? There's certainly some gothic and atmospheric elements. So perhaps I'm streching a bit. But I'd still like to recommend this as an easy way to into cyberpunk.

If you want some of the real classic stuff, this link has a sampling of works from the late 1800s/early 1900s. I'd recommend starting with Robert W. Chambers and William Hope Hodgson if you've already read some of the more obvious ones like Poe and Lovecraft.

What is the literary equivalent to Avatar: The Last Airbender?

A cozy quest across the world, with a trio of fun characters like Aang (fun-loving and honest, but mischevious), Kitara (responsible) and Sokka (annoying but well-intentioned).

And an enemy that within his own clique is struggling to maintain status and has honorable or understandable motivations.

Just a book with some of those general elements or feelings. Not a literal novelization or anything.

You might want to try The Wheel of Time, it is very centered on the four elements, and has a very unique system of magic. God, it's impossible for me to suggest this book without saying how much I actually HATE the series itself for so many personal reasons, yet I read through the whole thing because damn is The One Power an interesting concept and well developed. Characters are.... well, YMMV.

Horror Dump:

War of the Worlds (heavily sci-fi based)
It (arguably one of King's best stories)
The Picture of Dorian Gray (fantastic 19th century story about man's descendence into sin)
A Clockwork Orange (more of a disturbing book about anarchism and psychology)
The Shining (another of King's classics)
Dracula (for when you want to out-goth anyone at Hot Topic)
Frankenstein (a creature and its creator)
The Exorcist (to freak out any religious people other than Satanists or Sscietologists)
Anything by Poe (for when you want to be too goth for Hot Topic)
Anything by Lovecraft, notably:
The Music of Erich Zann
The Rats in the Walls

i like the way youth geared books can drive a message though the simplest means. intellectualism and elaboration on complex ideas are nice but theres something about the directness and emotional appeal of an easy read.

any suggestions of titles i should keep my eye out for?

'Johnathan Livingston Seagull' is my absolute favorite and i hope everyone gets the chance to read it. obligatory second is 'the little prince'

hatchet, its sequel river, and any other gary paulsen books i have read were phenomenal material for a young reader. it really drives home "nature is brutal" and the fact that city bitches will get fucked right in the ass if they try to play with nature unprepared.

same for jack london.

also im a sucker for the redwall series. its a little childish sometimes but it delivers on the "good always beats evil" trope which can provide some fuzzy feels

How is your writing going /lit/? Anyone here working on something or have any work they want to share? Not poetry, we have the OC Poems thread for that.

I am 2 acts done with a 3 act novel. I have written short stories before, and this is my first long endeavor. I had always lacked confidence, but one day, I suddenly stumbled upon the perfect horror novel just sitting in my mind. Like, it is literally the greatest horror story if this generation. It will go down as The Wire of horror stories for it's brutal look at reality at the bottom of the barrel. But it will also be like Trailer Park Boys and have a cast of lovable losers, who are down and out, living where every day feels like the end of the world, and having that corner of the ghetto become the backdrop for what will be the end of the world for real, with the local stoners and crackheads the last line of defense before an ancient evil reclaims the planet it once ruled a millennia ago. It is not a horror comedy like John Dies At The End, it is straight horror with some comedic moments the way an action movie can have good comedy. I know it will be an insta-classic and probably get a film adaption. As a long time 420channer, I will find some way to get it to you all for free after I find a publisher, since I know this site thrives on piracy, even if I have to pay them for digital downloads for all 3-5 regulars here. Drugs and the apocalypse, it should be right up most of /lit/s alley.

I'm not gonna pick them all out but you're using big words for the sake of using them. There's nothing you couldn't say in plain English while getting the same effect.

lol, no I'm not, the entire purpose of me doing this is to challenge the way people perceive characters like this and view them with a little more depth and nuance than "some hoodrat gangbanger", that and the character's internal monologues, exchanges with other characters (notice how she never uses the word 'nigga'?) and mannerisms in general are supposed to illustrate how ridiculously at odds she is with her environment

also she's supposed to come across as a little bloviating, that's who she is lol

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.

>>69021 me again. Since the last post I read Reflections In A Golden Eye by McCullers and was slightly disappointed. The consensus seems to be that it was her 2nd and therefore "mature" novel and although it seemed more revised than some of her early work it also lacked the feeling of a town-wide scope that she used in books like Clock Without Hands or The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter. Some pros: amazingly prescient of "suburban" malaise--I didn't realize military bases had such suburban housing but the fact that those communities exist all over the US today kind of spooks me. Also the passage that the title comes from (that says "reflections in a golden eye" or whatever) was the closest thing to a DPH trip I've ever seen in a novel. Another gay 'fairy' character appears in this one; I had mixed feelings about him but he was complex enough to be interesting even if he was a caricature.

For school I'm currently rereading The Neon Bible by John Kennedy Toole and The Member Of The Wedding by McCullers and also reading The Genealogy of Morals (not all the same class). If I have any free time I'll hopefully be reading The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone by Tennessee Williams.

The sequel to Fanshen, which I read a couple months ago. It's by an American farmer who went to live and work in a small Chinese village in one of the communist controlled areas during the last year of the Civil War, so the first book consists of his observations about the land reform process and its successes and failures, interviews with locals about how things have changed, descriptions of everyday life, that sort of thing. This one is similar except its based on his return visits after the Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revolution. He's obviously sympathetic to Mao, but also doesn't tend to mince words about the various major problems, fuckups and excesses of those periods. It's surprisingly in-depth and pretty fascinating, though a bit limited in scope since it generally focuses on Shanxi province rather than China as a whole. Still, clears up a lot of misconceptions without drifting too far into hagiography. And the narrative structure is a nice change of pace from most of the dry history books I read these days.

i know ayn rand is an extremely polarizing figure and i risk starting a flame war just by mentioning one of her books, but i got a similar readfeel from Anthem. the fact that the protagonist is brainwashed and largely uneducated makes him basically a retard, plus its cozy to watch him grasp the concept of individuality and fight the system. no comment on the broader philosophosociopolitical implications or messages of the book. people have strong opinions on both sides...

I don't even know what songs
would please you. I have given up trying
to recognize you in the surging wave of
the next moment. All the immense
images in me -- the far-off, deeply-felt landscape,
cities, towers, and bridges, and un-
suspected turns in the path,
and those powerful lands that were once
pulsing with the life of the gods--
all rise within me to mean

Your forgetting about all the sex though too. Shakespere was making entertainment for everyone. That's what people forget. He was trying to make shit exciting.

Sure, you'll have people talk about depth of literature, those sort of things. But the authors intention gets so forgotten. Shakespere wanted to make stuff that would entertain a wide crowd. It wasn't all about being high brow or anything.

Honestly I don't come here often, but I got a question for y'all regulars who know a bit more than I do. I like to write, I don't do it very regularly, but I do love doing it when I get around to it. The problem is I'm not great at doing things regularly unless I have structure. When I took a writing class I'd be writing multiple times a week and I'd be constantly thinking about this. This semester I don't have a writing class and I'll write one time a week if I'm lucky. Having a deadline, and knowing that what I'm writing will actually see other peoples eyes and get a response goes a long way for me. So for a guy like me, what's the best way to get some structure in? How can I get myself into a situation where I'm writing in order to present it to others?

I can think of two ways right now that both involve the internet. Wordpress is a way to write and get people seeing it, you can get some feedback that way. Or you could take the route of making your own site and writing for it so you can get some responses from people.

The deadlines will have to be self imposed. But these are just some ideas of ways for you to write and get people reading it a bit. There's other sites too take a look, depending on what you write and your acumen for networking you might like one site more than the other.
