Sir Arthur C. Clarke was a pederast who moved to Sri Lanka to molest young boys and memorialized it in Rendezvous to Rama's foreword ("to Sri Lanka, where I climbed the stairway of the gods"). Does this in any way affect your opinion of his work? Is it possible to respect work acontextually? e.g., can you enjoy a good OJ Simpson touchdown knowing he murdered his wife?

Game of Thrones book readers. So is Iwan Rheon playing Ramsey Bolton in the show? is this guy just fucking with theon? pretending to save him? Personal opinion is yes, unless the show is deviating away from the books by a wide margin.

In the middle of the journey of our life, I came to myself, in a dark wood, where the direct way was lost. It is a hard thing to speak of, how wild, harsh and impenetrable that wood was, so that thinking of it recreates the fear. It is scarcely less bitter than death: but, in order to tell of the good that I found there, I must tell of the other things I saw there. I cannot rightly say how I entered it. I was so full of sleep, at that point where I abandoned the true way. But when I reached the foot of a hill, where the valley, that had pierced my heart with fear, came to an end, I looked up and saw its shoulders brightened with the rays of that sun that leads men rightly on every road. Then the fear, that had settled in the lake of my heart, through the night that I had spent so miserably, became a little calmer. And as a man, who, with panting breath, has escaped from the deep sea to the shore, turns back towards the perilous waters and stares, so my mind, still fugitive, turned back to see that pass again, that no living person ever left. After I had rested my tired body a while, I made my way again over empty ground, always bearing upwards to the right. And, behold, almost at the start of the slope, a light swift leopard with spotted coat. It would not turn from before my face, and so obstructed my path, that I often turned, in order to return. The time was at the beginning of the morning, and the sun was mounting up with all those stars, that were with him when Divine Love first moved all delightful things, so that the hour of day, and the sweet season, gave me fair hopes of that creature with the bright pelt. But not so fair that I could avoid fear at the sight of a lion, that appeared, and seemed to come at me, with raised head and rabid hunger, so that it seemed the air itself was afraid; and a she-wolf that looked full of Can lit Name this poem

Born, died, and never lived. Quickly forgotten. The man is gone, both in body, mind and memory. Aye, he lived, but only as long as he was important at his birth and his death, the beginning of the story and the end where a reader might flip to get a glimpse of the drama, not to invest fully There is good reason for the incessant flipping for who wants to read of a man who wakes up falls back into a trance where he signs papers and writes them and promptly falls back asleep? Dull repetition of an already dull event written once and read a thousand times over. Oh, to be the void again! In birth, of course, he was fresh and newly born, full of the pep and energy that accompanies any new spark, a fire, a bomb, almost exploding with the energy given to him and the energy that he himself radiates. Alas, the flames turn to embers, and later ash; his aftershock quickly passes The energy is remembered, and looked upon with a feverish want He wishes so strongly for this fleeting memory, pushes so hard for it, that it disappears twice as fast, and his happiness with it. “Oh, to be electric again!” Now, young in his decay, his life finally becoming marble encased in the deep abyss known as the past His cells no longer die and rejuvenate as others, but shrivel into matter that is hardly useful to anyone but those who wish to study it, and the maggots! Oh! They’ll make a feast of him, both intellectually and literally, and from his rotting carcass, flowers will grow, and that will be all that is left of him in the future. “Oh, to be known.” 1/2

My younger sister recently won tickets to see David Sedaris from our local public radio station. I'm also a fan so I remind her that she neglected to give me a birthday or Christmas gift this past year, therefor taking me would be a great way to make up for it. She tells me she already made plans with her husband to make it a big night out away from the kids so as much as she'd like to, she not going to. I naturally spend the last week giving her shit about being for being bad sister and doing my best to make her feel terrible. I see her tonight after watching her son for her while missing the show she didn't take me to. When she walked in the door she hands me a copy of Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk and says, "Happy birthday and Christmas, look at the title page." I open the book and see this. "Holy shit, that's awesome..... Why does it say 'I shit in your mother's mouth?" "I asked him to write 'Get Bent'. When David asked why I told him that it's for my brother and he always writes rude comments like 'Get Bent' or 'Happy Birthday Stupid' on the card every time he he gives me a gift. So he wrote that." This is the best gift I've received in a long time.

It is a child's book. Possibly from the 60s, 70s, or 80s my edit, I think it was from the 80's, I read it between 1983-87 . I only recall two things from the book. One is a child reading from a book with warm golden light pouring out. The other is a child in a small boat with a lantern hanging from an small hook above him. The boat is shaped like a chair with a tall back that curves around with the hook for the lantern. MY EDIT I believe I remember this boat with a lantern hanging off the front of it going through a cave If anyone knows what book this is I would be forever grateful. I loved it as a child. I seem to remember the book is sort of a compilation of stories. It may not be a single story. I could be totally wrong, but I think it was something like this book takes the kid through 3 tales, that are slightly interwoven IE NOT just like Chapter 1. the lantern does this. Chapter 2. the lantern and boy are now randomly in Egypt I think the book flowed like he had the 1st adventure, and it lead down a river to another, and then down the river through a cave, note that it might not have been exactly 3 stories, but something in that area, and finally back in his bed at the end

What if the Harry Potter series was all a dream and Harry is actually a sociopath killer on death row. He invents this whole world in his mind to take him away from reality because Humans can't REALLY fathom their own death. He wants to atone for what he did but he's really not sure how. The story is symbolic of this struggle with the real world Harry being more like Voldemort but his subconscious is the personification of Harry Potter fighting against this pure evil. The reasons that the two wizards (Voldemort and Harry) are more intertwined than any other wizards in the story are because in reality.. They're the same person.

Greetings gents, I am looking for a book with an insane protagonist, be that a true hero or an anti-hero. Making my search difficult, however, is how I want him to be powerful as well. The best example of this I can offer is Rand al'Thor from The Wheel of Time. Any suggestions for a similar read?

I looked at the 4chanlit wiki and I can't find anything about this. What good books are there for reading on political libertarianism? As for which kind of libertarianism, I'm okay with any, whether it'd be minarchist vs minarchist or leftist vs. rightist, I'm interested in both aspects.
