I'm going to put this in motion, but since the response to the sticky was so low, I'm going to set a glacial pace. At least for now.

I struggled with whether to pick something fiction or nonfiction, so I'm selecting two books for the rest of the year:


Permutation City by Greg Egan

and

The Spell of the Sensuous by David Abram



You may also use this thread to suggest a book, but I'm more likely to pick the suggestion that comes at the end of the best post about one of these books.

Why are some people so infatuated with Lovecraft? He is probably the most overrated horror writer ever.

He is basically emulating Hindu mythology and name drops 40 000 different gods while building some pseudo-imaginative netherworld where everything boils down to madness and hurr nothing makes sense durr. Pretty much every neckbeards wet dream besides watching anime.

Lovecraft literature...it is boring as fuck. Not only that its not even really scary due to the fact that it constantly depends on two factors and that's pointlessness and madness.

The mystery starts, they discover great monsters of long ago or monsters are among us and dont even try to fight back cause they are hopelessly more advanced than us even though they are just fucking blobs of mesh that dont really ever do anything unless of course they scale down to our level to cause chaos but whatever.
He also plays with madness at the mere sight of these things or learning about them but it just comes off as silly to me as there is really no reason for this besides that theyre uber advanced and we are pointless, and yet nothing happens. Events that take place are usually isolated to a handful of characters to make it scary but whatever cause at the end of the day the blobs of madness are just whatever and the fear lies in that nobody is aware of them besides the ones who had the experience. But nothing ever happens even though there several of these entities so from now on I am going to assume the lovecraft characters who have these experiences are just that, insane. Yep the the whole lovecraft universe is just a hallucination tapped into by any of the main characters and what drives them insane is its own babble which is well represented as giant sentient blobs of madness.
And that basically describes lovecraft. So the next time someone makes a comment about cthulu I will respond with boat. If someone goes on about azathoth, i will think oh that blob in space that isnt going to do shit and whos form I could never comprehend so why bother.

Is there a sci-fi book out there that gives off a feeling like the one pic related film gives? If yes, please recommend me some.

The Stand honestly comes to mind. For much of its length it's too directed and eventful to have that vibe, but for dozens and sometimes hundreds of pages at a time it involves very small groups of people moving through empty country and confronting various mysteries and hazards, always with some far off goal they don't quite understand.

Very minor spoilers: The outbreak section of the book ends around page 200, and there's one very difficult journey through empty land near the end of the book.

I'll add that the first Dark Tower book does not have this feel at all even though it's also about one, two, maybe three people moving slowly and sometimes aimlessly through a wasteland. This is probably because it's peppered with interesting and dramatic flashbacks, and the scenery is too interesting. The Stand has a mundane quality about it, mostly familiar settings.

You might also enjoy Winterlong by Elizabeth Hand, though in addition to the stalking there's a lot of drama that plays out in the ruined museums and other landmarks of Washington, DC and the surrounding area.

What did you think of Roadside Picnic?

26/M. Can someone recommend a book on how one would become an alpha fucking male? I'm too generous and nice. I want to learn how to not give a fuck. And how to talk to women because I have absolutely no game.

you should read a book called The Naked Ape. It'll be useful to you.
