Hey /lit/...George R.R. Martin is a talentless hack that blatantly plagiarized European history and raped the unabridged Oxford English Dictionary for his abortion of a novel. I like the show though... CAPTCHA: ofuckfis mann.

Five Classical Chinese Novel Translations?

On the lit wiki there are translation guides for Journey to the West and Three Kingdoms, but none for Dream of the Red Chamber, Water Margin, or Jin Ping Mei. Can anyone recommend good translations for them, especially abridged editions? Currently I'm reading the University of California Abridged edition of Three Kingdoms and the University of Chicago abridged version of Journey to the West for a class I'm taking, and I'm loving them, but the class is focused on Asian Literature as a whole and as such we don't read the other three, though the professor has spoken very highly of them, so I want to read them on my own, but I'm at a loss as to which translation to get, especially considering how there doesn't seem to be high quality abridged versions like there are for Three Kingdoms and Journey to the West.

How can there be free will AND determinism? How do people believe that they have free choice over their actions AND that where out there everything happens for a reason? I don't understand.

What's the difference between modern and contemporary lit? Would I be correct in saying that the modern era starts at around 1900 and ends after WW2, and from then on is contemporary? Or is WW2 too long ago to be contemporary any more?

How to name

Hey /lit/, was wondering if any of you felt like helping me with something that I have wondered for a long time. I'm starting to make a little story for my fantasy character, and I'm stuck on choosing a name. I would like it to have meaning behind it, and have no idea how to do that. For example, Kratos 'supposedly' means power in ancient greek. Any translator I try, I don't get anything like that. (and I obviously do not know anyone who speaks ancient greek to confirm). I've tried translating 'strong' 'leader' etc in different languages and just messing around with the word to get a cool looking name, but, nothing seems to work. If theres some special, secret 'root words for names' thing someone could show me, or something, so I could try to get just the right name for each personality of each character, that would be great.

/lit/ I need a name for a character that looks like this guy. Person in pic is Amir Aczel, some random (and not very good) academic author who happens to look almost identical to the person the character is based on. Amir isn't cutting it for a name. The real guy's name is Peter. Short and simple. What should my character be?

Hey /lit/ when was the last time you left a book unfinished? Mine was 15 years ago. I can´t help it but when I start something, I have to finish it no matter how shitty it is. It's like I'm afraid of losing something, and I'm afraid of judging a book for it's first half, or 100 pages, or it's cover. Anyone feeling the same here? Any advice? I feel like I'm wasting time. It doesn't happen very often. I enjoy most things I read, but when it happens it's a royal pain in the ass.

I'm trying to remember the name of a book I read as a kid. I thought it was part of the Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark books or but I haven't seen it listed anywhere in the series. It was about how to set up a Halloween party and the title was similar to the series, Scary Stories to Tell at Your Scary Halloween party or something. The inside had ideas for kids making decorations and some tips for themed foods. That's about all I can recall but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, /lit/ I have like, 5 audible credits that I got for free. I am looking for some interesting books. I am quite into more paranormal, horror, or weird stories. I am quite fond of gothic era literature more than anything. I also really like science non-fiction kind of stuff, such as Oliver Sacks. Suggestions must be on http://www.audible.com/

I want to find some fantasy/adventure books to listen to as audiobooks. I prefer to read the really good stuff, so are there any mid tier that would be a good listen?

So, I finally finished this series. I'm a huge fan of 40k books and I'm having a hard time finding anything that can come close to the character evolution and overall plot in other Warhammer novels. Anyone got any that can even touch this series?
