Hey guys, can someone refer a book to me? I feel like you guys are into futuristic/sci-fi or fantasy books, but I don't really want to read anything like that unless it's like a future U.S. book but not apocalypse if that makes sense. Honestly idk what I want but my favorite books are Night by Weisel, Artemis Fowl, Fallen Angels, Slaughterhouse 5, and the Martian. I know those all vary but I'm just trying to help. I like baseball too but not usually the books, especially if Mike Lupica writes it. So if you have no idea what book fits my preferences just post your favorite. I remember someone offered a book called John Dies at the end, is that a good book? Also does anyone know a site I can just read books? No torrent or anything like that.

Hmm, future America but not apocalypse. If you're up for some dystopia, I can unreservedly recommend the Man in the High Castle, Do Androids dream of Electric Sheep, Fahrenheit 451 and Neuromancer. Or if you want something slightly more optimistic, Ender's game, the Forever war or any collection of Isaac Asimov's short stories.

John Dies at the End is an amazing book. It's horror/comedy, so if you don't like that, don't bother. It's written by one of the head editors for cracked.com .

I just watched Miyazaki's "Tales from Earthsea" because I am a huge Earthsea fan and a huge Miyazaki fan. Then I found out it was the wrong Miyazaki. It turned out Studio Ghibli wanted to give Hayao Miyazaki's son Goro Miyazaki some practice directing. The result was a sub-par blend of the third and fourth books. Anyone else here read Earthsea?

Hell yeah, I still have my old battered copy of the quartet. That was a damn weird read for a kid, and yeah the film wasn't up to much.

Anyone know where I can get a hold of Anders Behring Breiviks Europa 2083 or Ted Kaczynskis manifesto?

Anyone else here read the Darren Shan Saga?
I decided to buy and reread all of them due to the fact that I had only read up to book 5 for ages.
Jesus Christ it was good. I loved Lake of Souls; that whole thing with The Grotesque and everything.
Spoilers: my fan theory (I know it obviously has no credence as an argument to whatever Shan was actually trying to portray, but it's just what I like you think about it) is that The Grotesque was the last of the vampires, mutated over time. It's mainly just with the context clues; 1. The followers of TG are theorised to be descendants of those albino parasite people that lived in Vampire Mountain (I can't remember their name), 2. Ba'Shan's spiders are also there too, and 3. The Grotesque is human-like, with fangs and red eyes (red eyes like a Vampaneze would have

That being said, most of those things may have just been orchestrated and placed their by Mr. Tiny to just fuck with Darren's head but I just like the idea of it.

So, I got bored and decided to read some Iron Man comics. Turns out that he's not only adopted, he was adopted from Bulgaria. My country is so fucking obscure and small, that they are using it for character origin stories now, instead of just making up a new country like they usually do. I can't tell if I should be proud or pissed.

So I'm working on an idea for a new novel. It's pretty much a soft apocalypse (No nukes or zombies or aliens or anything, society just gradually collapses), but 300 or so years later. There's a bunch of different nations and factions (Like Unitary Cascadia, Social Marxist Deseret, the Mid-West Horse Lords, etc), but the book will be based in New Albion, an Arthurian kingdom in the American north-east. The good king has died, and a boy king inherits the throne. All of the royal uncles gather hosts and declare for themselves save the new king's heir, who tasks himself with keeping the realm together so he can inherit it legitimately.

What do you think?

Careful with your place names. I can't tell if you actually meant that, but nobody calls their country "Horse-lords" of anything. Mid-west Khanate would work, or maybe the Midwestern Horde. The same would probably go for "Social-Marxist". I hate the phrase show don't tell, but in this case, a little subtlety would serve you well. Also, if you're doing this, do a favour to a history buff and stick a serene republic in there.

Sounds interesting. I had a similar idea for distant post-apocalypse.

scp wiki is great for creepy pasta. My favorite manga ever is Mahou Sensei Negima, but I know a lot of people don't like it. It starts off pure harem, but turns to more action later.

News-paper readers:

Can any eurobros recommend a European news paper of good quality? Only requirement is that it's in English or French, and that's it not too biased. Preferably paper-version, but website is also acceptable. Currently getting Le Monde, so that's a no-go.

The guardian or the telegraph are normally considered the best in England. We also have various trashy tabloids of the Sun, the Mirror, the Star etc.

The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx. There are a lot of very profound ideas in there that go way beyond whatever you learned in history or government.
