We should all be living in the woods and reading.

When I think about what was probably the best time to be alive in human history, the answer is always like 1700s, right before industrialization, but with most knowledge up to that point.

Unpolluted, no big corporations making you addicted to their products. Society existed. We had well water, you could send & recieve mail, books were available, we had guns, et cetera. It was quaint as long as you didn't develop a serious health problem.

Now, we have modern medicine. We're basically safe as long as we eat well & stay in shape at this point. Why should we force ourselves to live in gross polluted areas? The forest still exists and is waiting for us to go and build a hidden dwelling. You can read as much /lit/ as you want.

Hi guys, looking for some "Space Fantasy" recommendations. Bonus points if they're adventures

Honestly, I want recent novels but I can't find any that aren't about women (usually lesbians)

I'm working on my own space fantasy novel so I just want more experience in the genre. Any recs? Already read pic related, it was exceptional.

On another note, are there any other good communities/websites/YouTubes for novels that aren't pozzed to hell and back?

>Book gets banned because of "course/foul language"

Why is this a thing? Even in today's age, why have there always been people who get eternally fucking butthurt about "bad language" and actively try to curb it? How is it that old biddies get so eglffortlessly blown the fuck out by words like "shit" "fuck" or "cocksucker"?

Who are these people and how do they even survive?

Who the hell are you quoting? I asked you “Who taught you how to write on 4chan? You got 4chan writing classes in school?” because you claimed that reddit spacing was something you were taught to do on 4chan here >>21048304
I was never “taught” how to write on 4chan, I just acclimated to it over the years.
I’ll tell you, your teachers were wrong. Reddit spacing is not proper form on 4chan. Keep doing it though please, it’s nice to be able to instantly identify you as a worthless redditor
>>
>>21048138
I’ve always been confused with censorship in general. Take for example when you’re listening to FM radio and the scramble a word or whatever during a song, you arnt confused or in anyway unaware of what the word or intention was. So in your brain you still interpret what they have actually said but with some arbitrary censor over top of it. So is it the word itself that’s bad even removed of context? Or is it the meaning of the word? Either way it’s all the same in your head so the whole purpose of censoring it is moot. I’m also rambling and this is a complete tangent and I’m also gay and retarded so take it for what it’s worth

I never implied I was taught fuck-all by 4chan you fucking tard. You leave a space between paragraphs, that's literally taught in school, it's proper sentence.

You space seperate paragraphs apart. I can't for the life of me figure out why you would be actively butthurt about this concept. Did you not make it past the fourth fucking grade?

You're the idiot whining about "muh reddit spacing tho!" Not me.

Ireland literally doesn't have a single anti immigrant party in Parliament, they're the only European country which doesn't have one.
Maybe they might have like 1 or two MPs, but that's it.
Like I said, if you walk around talking about blood and ancestry you'll be viewed as some Imperialist twat who belongs in the British upper class (i.e worse than the devil in Irland)

>American-Irish are Irish, they're accepted albeit distinguished as Americans but also Irish. It's not that complicated, if Joe Biden or Tom Brady call themselves Irish they'll be claimed as such.
Really depends on whether the American is deemed "Euro-acceptable". Ain't nobody ever claiming someone like Donald Trump or George Bush lmao, but if fucking Obama said "my true name is O'Barner I'm one of you!" you'd see circlejerking. John F Kennedy was also a borderline national hero.

We have approximately zero anti-immigration TD's (MP's) here in Ireland. If you go around talking about being 23% this and 35% that you'll be treated as someone to be wary of, slightly annoying, and obsessed with meaningless things.
Anyone in the world who has an Irish ancestor is welcome home, and anyone else who wants to come over and live here amongst us is also welcome. We aren't concerned about our culture being tarnished, if anything we can always improve on things with good new thinking and ideas and we aren't afraid that our culture will disappear as we've seen many waves upon waves of people washing upon the shore like so much flotsam and jetsam since time immemorial and change can be good

Yeah, I'm sure a guy who parrots insipid diversity slogans from his local newspaper's editorial page is a fount of "good new thinking." I often find /pol/ people annoying with the boorishness and try-hard edginess, but still prefer them to creepy brainwashed zombies like this.

There’s the werewolf of paris, people consider that as the Dracula of werewolf novels. If you turn back time, There’s Wagner the Werewolf but there’s barely any werewolf in it and it’s more of a social novel. The short story called The Werewolf of Ponkert which was created as a response to H.P. Lovecraft’s comment about creating a story within the view of a werewolf personally i think the cycle of the wolf is by Stephen king is my favorite werewolf story. With includes some great illustrations.

I'm a fan. I remember that my grade school's library had a little section with his books, and I read them all. Some more than once. The BFG and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will forever be a warm part of my childhood. Honorable mention to Louis Sachar's Wayside school series.
