Carl Jung's The Red Book Liber Novus.
A famous psychoanalyst has a mid-life crisis with terrible nightmares and day-time visions. He chooses to go into the nightmares and takes the fight to the demons on their own turf. Lot of philosophy and mindgames.

The dream quest of unknown kadath. It's one of my favorite stories from HP lovecraft, pretty sure you will like it!

Dream Story by Arthur Schnitzler.

Aside from the title, it's not explicitly about dreams, but its style follows a sort of hypnagogic logic that lulls you into dream-like images. It teeters the line between dream and nightmare often. (also Eyes Wide Shut is based on this book)

People often talk about how the Yume Nikki manga and light novel were horrible but no one seems to talk about the picture book. Is it any good?

Don't brag just link

Anon is still around ubuu, so there's a good chance that he'll reply.
However, I advise him to be cautions about this whole thing since he'll be basically doxing himself. If he finds no problem by doing so then it's alright to post about it, but if he doesn't then I'd recommend to hand over a mail address where people interested can contact him directly.

Anyway, it really feels weird to have someone successful here, considering the average post here involves mostly ranting and depression.
Well done, OP.



OP here. Well, success didn't last long -_- it's a long story but, basically, I found out the publisher was majorly screwing me behind my back, so I had to protect myself and sever the contract. Of course, the book was immediately removed from all points of sale.
Good news is - my agent has just found me a publisher for an English version (minor publisher, but still), so I guess it was more of a case of 'a door closes, a gate opens'. Not even sure if that saying exists in English but whatever.

In the meantime I'll link one of the good reviews the original Italian got - doxing myself but I really don't see who would give a fuck.



Good luck with your next publisher!

ITT we write a story one sentence at a time. When you add a sentence, make sure you wait for at least one other contribution before adding another.

>As if reading her mind, the cat looks at K. and meows "Well what were you going to do with two gallons of blood anyway?"


>Something is welling up K's throat, climbing; warm, fluid, a copper pretaste—sputtering over the roof of per mouth, but it's going up, further and around the nasal cavities
it's flowing forth and recycling into her mouth, down her esophagus, flooding each alveola; thought…

no thought.


>"The two gallons are a gift," the cat purred "I've put them into your biological subspace. Imagine the powers you have now!"


K dies of haemochromatosis and 30 STD's, and the cat runs off with her body.


Meanwhile, the goblin archmage cackles softly in his tall obsidian tower, watching through his crystal ball as his cat familiar retrieves the body.

Hello! I'm looking for something relatively easy (or intermediate) to help improve my vocabulary, since English is not my first language. Any genre is alright.

I remember the first time I read LOTR in english. I learned a lot of new words that I haven't seen that often since.
Definitely not easy.

OP, what's your mother language?


"To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee or anything by George Orwell (like 1984 or Animal Farm) both of those are taught like middle and early high school years so theyre good for strengthening english vocab.


File: 1577752694499.jpg (378.83 KB, 1443x2560, 81DOPuMhhoL.jpg)

They make SAT vocab books. They shove a bunch of words, with definitions, into a fiction book to help you learn


here are some:
Charlotte's Web (easy)
Jane Eyre
Oliver Twist
A Tale of Two Cities
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes #3
To Kill a Mockingbird
A Christmas Carol
Anne of Green Gables #1
any of the book from the Harry Potter franchise
The Great Gatsby
anything by William Shakespeare


Anything by Steinbeck. Also check out Jack London - Call of the Wild.

Reading non-fiction books such as manuals, biopics, essays and the like is quite a delight. Does anyone here find them interesting as well?

Nekojiru Udon (known in english as Cat Soup) was a manga originally published in Garo magazine. Some of it got translated (http://mangafox.la/manga/nekojiru_udon/) but there was much more that never was to my knowledge. There's a blog that was translating it (https://translatingnekojiru.tumblr.com/) but from what I remember it was a clusterfuck of random pages from different volumes, and now you apparently can't view it without a tumblr account. Does anyone own scans of or physical copies that they could scan of the untranslated volumes?

It was also made into 2 anime. A half hour long film, whch I know some of you have seen already (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlLBX4EIlJY) and a series of short cheap episodes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWnkOvi4i6c).

If you want to know more about the author:

It's a real shame all the spin offs were never fully translated because they look real interesting. Nekojiru Dango, 1 chapter translated, and Nekojiru Cafeteria, which is fully translated.


If you can provide the raws, I can translate it.
