Can you guys recommend some Chinese literature and philosophy? I'm particularly interested in Taoist texts, however I'm open to anything, as I have close to zero knowledge in this field.
So far I have listed some of the most popular works: The Art of War, the Tao Te Ching, and the I Ching. More modern works are welcome too. I know what I'm asking for is very broad, but just throw anything at me.

Hey there 4chan.
Ive been trying to write stories for years now, But I can never seem to get past making a first chapter for my stories.
Ill usually have lots of ideas, And I know what my part a, b and c should be. But after writing a couple of sentances, I either hate what I have written or i get stuck?
Does this mean I have to change my writing style? Or maybe do more planning?
If anyone can give me tips, or suggest some reading material. I'd really appreciate it.

Looking for a book I started reading once (wasnt mine)
A DETECTIVE in some sort of magic city, like a nether realm or something, and his wife was a cat/spirit/demon? I feel like he might be chinese. So hes a detective that solves crimes in a city that has spirit people, or demon people or something......
Sorry, it was years ago, and read it quickly and put it back. I wanted to go buy it, but never found it again.
picture of dragon because i think there was a picture of one on the cover.
also something about magic smoke, lol
Help a reader out?

Hey /lit/. I read Martin Eden 4 years ago and although I remember the main events, I don't remember some specific but vital parts of it, eventwise, and I need to remember them for a paper in which I need to use specific quotes and examples.
So as any person with an internet access would do, I googled for a summary of Martin Eden and to my surprise, there weren't a single summary that covered all the events at all.
So, if anyone could find a summary online, or write a brief but thorough summary here, that would be very much appreciated.
Also "Does Martin Eden criticize Nietzchian individualism or defend it." thread.

I'm going crazy. When I was a child I bought a book from my school's book fair. It was a horror book, the kind RL Stine writes? It had a collection of short stories. There were like anthropomorphic pickles on the cover, wearing clothes and mowing the lawn and stuff. I can't remember most of the stories in it, all I remember is the picture on the cover.
My friends are convinced this book doesn't exist, but I know it does! Help!
Picture fairly unrelated.
