"I am the literary equivalent of a Big Mac and fries." - Stephen King Did he mean he is popular and well-known, or that he knows he writes light literature intended for the masses?

Illiterate African Child Wins Nobel Prize in Literature STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN—The Swedish Academy, responsible for awarding the esteemed Nobel Prize in Literature, shocked the world on Tuesday with its decision to award the 2013 prize to Ngozhani Kirikou, a 14-year-old Nigerian girl who has never learned to read or write. Kirikou, both the youngest person to be honored, as well as the only winner to have absolutely no understanding of written language, admitted she had no idea she was being considered for the award. “I do not know what this is,” she told reporters following the announcement of her win. “Please someone explain.” Kirikou reportedly first caught the attention of the Academy back in 2010 when she appeared in a 30-second TV spot for UNICEF. “We were immediately drawn to her selfless dedication to the charity,” Academy spokesperson Mara Jorgenson explained. “But what really excited us was her deft, relevant social commentary in sentences like ‘In my village there is little food,’ and ‘Every donation helps.’ In those two sentences alone she accomplished more than American literature has managed in the last 20 years.” The citation mentions her “spoken word delivered in short, thoughtful phrases” and “bold disregard for established literary custom” as deciding factors in granting her the prize.

Want to pick up a Bukowski collection because fuck it. Where to begin?

recommendations like Lovecraft?

4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: hp-lovecraft-1_000.jpg]
Hey /lit/, recently i've had this craving for H.P.Lovecraft stories and I recently bought a book that I think had all of his published works. I quickly read through it and loved it. I just really love the way he writes and I was hoping that you guys can recommend me some stuff that is similar to his work? But preferably good because I think most 'horror' stories are bad and just slightly suspenseful and have a boring end. I like Lovecraft because I was so drawn into his world in his stories and I just want some immersion like that with some good books. So, any suggestions?

Hello /lit/, do you know any good books about surviving in the Kali Yuga?

Why is it that the majority of libraries and bookstores, no matter how narrow and small their selection, separate their "Fiction" and "Science Fiction" into separate sections? Why must scifi be quarantined and treated as if it's somehow less than "Fiction." Separate but equal my asa.

Malignant And Miles Short

10 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 1331918971102.jpg]
Born from agony that won't go numb. Hell's eternal crumb. A chandelier of vomit and pain. Bellicose but not by indignation. Malignant and miles short of everything that could become anything. I did not consent to the life I've been forced to live. Staring into infinity from the lee of my broken mind, where sanity struggles to survive. I illuminate what I hate and concentrate solely on suffering. Huddled deep in what half the world could never conceive. A world so violent and depraved that it has been shaped into the fucking face of hell. My thoughts are spit onto scraps of sky. Bloodshed hail and acid rain force a fucking gun against your brain. Contemplate suicide. Know my pain. All beauty beaten into black and gray. Know my pain. Ruthless anguish sunk violently into your wrists as the bleak sun wanes and breaks beneath the weight of vehement shade. Know my pain. See me through the ashen fog. I am the fucking horror you were warned of. I am the lone bastard. I am the charred remains of horrific fates. Know my fucking pain. In the incondite funnel of human misery. My mind has failed me.

What does /lit/ think of Borges?

What do you think of Alan Moore? He wrote Watchmen and V for Vendetta. He is an anarchist and a magician. If you have some time, i can recommend you this documentary on him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YutJ0HORpAQ He talks a bit about his life, how he ended up being an author for comics and then proceeds to discuss more intellectual/philosophical topics. One of which is magic. It sounds a bit ridicoulus but i found this to be one of the most interesting parts because he compares it to writing literature. Here is the part about magic btw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=YutJ0HORpAQ#t=1592 If this thread is considered off topic because he is an author for comic books(which are in fact literature), then just delete the thread instead of banning me. Imo this topic seems to be more interesting for /lit/ than /co/ as there is a pretty big part in the video where he talks about writing and rather philosophical topics. In fact he barely talks about comics and when he does he talks about them as a form of literature.

Which science fiction is the better science fiction? The type that takes a serious look at how the world might develop in the future, taking the time to come up with logical explanations to how machines and such operate and work to give the story a more believable feeling? Or the science fiction that says "this works because yes" and focuses more on the themes and ideas rather than if their future actually makes sense or not?

>Someone's finished a book before you have >"I don't want to spoil it" >They do it anyway, almost as if they don't even know it I don't get it, if you don't want to spoil the book, why not just be quiet or talk as if you were at the part where the other person is?

Hey guys, just a reminder that there is an ongoing /lit/ Wittgenstein study and discussion group, studying the Philosophical Investigations. It's been seven weeks and we're still going strong. If you missed any meetings in the past, don't worry, it's still possible to get on board! The next meeting is this Saturday 28th September, at 8pm GMT! All you have to do is show up on irc.rizon.net, at #wittgenstein at this time, having read sections 65 - 77. Here's a copy of the text: http://gormendizer.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/Ludwig.Wittgenstein.-.Philosophical.Investigations.pdf Please feel free to discuss anything about Wittgenstein you'd like in this thread, or ask any questions about how to use IRC and so on.

Do you agree with Achebe's dismissal of Conrad as a "bloody racist"? http://kirbyk.net/hod/image.of.africa.html
