Hey /lit/, can you help me find a website where I can buy A Canticle for Leibowitz with this cover art? Google isn't helping me find any shop sites.

Post your favorite lines of poetry. Can be stanzas, individuals lines, clusters within stanzas, whatever. Can even be from music of any genre. Don't criticize. Just enjoy each other's contributions. (pic unrelated, just looks nice)

Was Philip K Dick right or was William Gibson? >My next read is Issac Asimov robot trilogy Who are your favorite Hard Sci-fi authors >Spaceships/Time-travelers/Post-Apocalypse What's your favorite sub-genre and give us an example

Hi /lit/. I'm searching for books, I've checked the wikia but I did not found what I want. I'd like a book (novel, short story, whatever) set in a surrealistic world. The MC travels in this weird universe for some reason and gives to the reader the chance to discover strange, incredible things. I don't know much books, but as an example I'm searching for a story pretty much like The Little Prince by St-Exupéry. If you watch anime, maybe Kaiba and Tortov Roddle will give you more of a hint. Thanks for your concern.

Apple II Release year: 1977 Memory: 4KB Price: $ 1298 Price/KB: 324.5 Apple III Release year: 1980 Memory: 128KB Price: $ 3192 (adjusted for inflation according to Inflation Calculator) Price/KB: $ 24.94 The equation of a linear graph is y = kx + m k = dy/dx dy = 24.94 - 324.5 = - 299,56 dx = 1980 - 1977 = 3 k = -299,56 / 3 = -99.85 Where 1977 is x = 0 324.5 = -99.85 * 0 + m 324.5 = m y(0) = -99.85X + 324.5 -99.85X = -324.5 X = 3.25 And X=3 was 1980, remember? That means that the very year Apple III was released memory would've cost nothing and then had a negative cost. Or at least in 1981

UN-WITTGENSTEINIZATION... 10 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
UN-WITTGENSTEINIZATION MANIFESTO From this day on we, the public of /lit/, readers and writers alike, shall ignore any post that refers to Wittgenstein, either explicitly or implicitly. We shall not read it, we shall not reply to it. Wittgenstein was a great philosopher, that may be so, but to /lit/ his name has become a only buzzword supposedly refuting anything that one might want to refute. People referring to him no longer try to point to one or another of his arguments, only to his intangible 'general worldview' as if that answers all possible questions. We do not deny people their right to hold Wittgensteinian views. We just require to formulate your arguments, just so we would be able to recognize those who understand and reason about philosophy and those who only cast spells like 'wittgenstein'. ___________________________________________________ I recognize that my manifesto of general English writing skills are shit, therefore I encourage anyone who feels up to the task rewrite the manifesto properly. In fact, I believe that it would benefit the whole of /lit/ if threads with this or similar content reappeared periodically for a while.

Can we have a female author thread? My bookshelf is mostly made up of male writers and I need some diversification. I'd love to read what I'm missing out on. Right now I'm reading this. Next on my list is Sleep's Powers by Jacqueline Risset.

Should I become a theologian, /lit/? The practice of divining the divine is probably the only thing I could honestly dedicate myself to, and maybe that's because I hold a pipedream of one day proving God to myself once and for all, but I can't think of anything I'd rather spend my life doing

the world shapes thought, thought shapes action, action shapes the world. how do you deal with predeterminism? i have heard people talk about freedom of action and freedom of will as different things. i suppose we are all results of cause and effect, however the chains are so complex that we might can´t predict anything.

Sup /lit/ Just finished reading Stephen King's "The Breathing Method". Really enjoyed it, the writing style, the ambiance, all that shit. Anyone have suggestions for similar books? Call me a pleb for not enjoying falling asleep to Siddhartha, I don't care.

I'm trying to read more Lovecraft so I checked the Apple bookstore and there are large collections of his works for very cheap. The one's I'm curious about are the ones that are $.99. Is this legitimate? Or is it just bullshit?
