Are any contemporary "urban fiction" writers worth reading? I love old-school black ghetto pulp novelists like Iceberg Slim and Donald Goines, but there's such an avalanche of this new stuff, with zero quality control, that I don't know where to start. in b4 /pol/-tier ranting about niggers

old man

4 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
The old man was withering away; slowly dying and waiting for death, since all his family and friends have either forgot about him or are dead, the old man was always depressed and thought about suicide. The old man glanced at a rope and decided to end it all. Then he saw a puppy and killed it instead by skinning it with a potato peeler, then hanging it by the rope.

Is there such a thing as muslim literature? Are they allowed to create literary art and explore existential themes? I looked to Harold Bloom for recommendations but they don't seem to be in the Canon.

That moment when you've been senior partner for a while and realize that it wasn't Jacks faults that everything went awry at the island – it was Ralph's fault for simply being a bad leader and a lousy diplomat. Discuss

Just saw a trailer for a HPL Dreamland related movie youtube. It seems like there are people who really love those stories after all but I was never really too eager to read them till now. I really love Lovecraft's stuff but I have to admit that I've only read his ~20-30 Yogsothothery/Arkham Cyclus related things so far. Are his Dreamland stories good as well? I barely ever hear people talking about them. Are there fans who maybe even prefer them over the "Cthulhu myth" stuff?
Bring "the truest"... 2 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Bring "the truest" written of your life the thing it's pretty much optional but i really want to bring it... do you think it's safe i mean... i write it like 9 years ago.. Well it took me some time to realize what lies with in me, that I'm different from the rest of every single person I know, that I can be true to my convictions but still i carve for love and acceptance which by the way will always be neglected, unless I change what I am, change the very inside of my hearth so I can have what I want, "everybody has to grow up to have some fun" and not only fun, but everything else love, acceptance, friendship. All a human being carve , no-one wants to be alone in the world and that of all thinks it's a fact...and I can't believe the real way things are... they are just ambiguous, they are just not profound, all based on just a schedule, in being adjust to see or talk to someone, and just have little moments of true love, and some affections overall... but that is better than nothing, seriously not have anyone to trust or even talk, laugh over nothing, or just have a nice time, it's horrible, there is nothing like that to break a person's heart and mind, and as far as I'm concern being only you and care for other more than yourself, became happy and fulfilled by helping... that's just bullshit, it makes you became everyone's friend when they are in need but for you... you can be suffering and they will never know nor care, so from this day on... I'm sorry guys but don't count on me anymore, if you are on despair or need... look for help somewhere else and don't bother me with your problems, I don't want to know, there is only one person I want to be happy from now on and that person its me, call me an asshole, a selfish motherfucker I don't care anymore, if you guys want to have fun be near cause hell yes I know I want, and if you think of me like a new more horrible person do so... I know I promise to never change, but to hell with that, it's time for me to have a taste of selfishness, fun and love, and if I like it... don't count on see me like I was never again, it's just not going to happen, I'm kinda sorry for the true friends, but you guys didn't offer me what I truly carve, well, we all have more "friends" than friends in the end so it won't make much difference, not that I care anymore, so people I'm ready for some fun, you guys do as you please, God's know that I will.

Critique me?

Critique me? 27 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey /lit/, anyone care to critique a short piece? I wrote this as an experiment in sincerity, taking it to a suffocating extreme. I think I executed what I sought to do, but I think the product is just hard to read and bad on several levels. But I care about the themes, so any feedback or advice on how to approach sincerity without making it feel uncomfortable would be great. http://pastebin.com/7d1bNVnz
