Hi /lit/, didn't see a recent purchases thread, so I thought I'd make one. I just ordered these off of Amazon for my birthday next week, and on Saturday I'm going into town to buy a related book which I have on hold at the local bookstore (The Archaic Revival, also by Terence McKenna). So, that's me, I guess. Now you.

That's exactly what I would read back in my senior year of high school. You'll get over the LSD phase & when you do, you will be a different man-- a better man. You will then move onto philosophy & read Nietzsche, Sarte, Schopenhauer, Voltaire, etc. Mark my words OP. But nonetheless, happy tripping!

Do people really fall for this? I mean, I've read IJ and GR, but buying all three of them together?
>>
>>7588934
I bought them because the topics seemed interesting to me. Sure, they're a meme trilogy, but if they're discussed this much on /lit/ then surely there must be something good about them.

How much did you spend for a copy?

Also, post pics.
>>
>>7588970
I don't know, some of those reviewers on GR sound more obsessed with "good prose" than you guys. I've enjoyed everything I've read by McElroy up until now (except Plus and Hind's Kidnap), so if this is really life changing I think it'll be worth it.

>>7588974
I just ordered it, but it cost me about $160 after shipping and all. I know dzanc is planning on getting all of his stuff out one way or another, but I couldn't help myself.
>>
>>7588985
Why the fuck did one book cost you $160? How much of that was shipping?

No pics but:
Mythologies-Roland Barthes
Satantango-László Krasznahorkai
Warlock-Oakley Hall
Paris Peasant-Louis Aragon
Kizumonogatari-Nisio Isin

I love good prose and I have an epub of Women & Men and I read the first 20 pages and it was spectacular, but I don't think I'll have the commitment to actually finish it until something spurs me to finish it.

Demons
Crime And Punishment
Leaves Of Grass
The Divine Comedy
Fear And Trembling
Chronicles Volume One

Omensetter's luck, A Frolic of His Own and Infinite jest, a bit memey for sure

>>7589037

Satantango is my first exposure to Krasznahorkai, I've been dying to read more Hungarian literature lately so I hope I made a good entry point in his novels. I'm looking forward to Warlock, especially since it is my first NYBR book and I'm very happy with what I got production wise.

I've got Man and his Symbols but I've not read yet, read Jung's biography: Memories, Dreams and Reflections which was pretty fantastic. I advise reading that if you want to know a little more about Jung. Also goes into detail about his friendship with Freud.

Women and Men has been out of print for years, bro. I've seen copies go for way more than $160.
>>
>>7589193
Why doesn't somebody just start printing it again? Surely someone must own the rights to it.
>>
>>7588428

What got you into Leary? I'm interested in psychedelics, and have experimented a fair bit, but everything I've read about Leary, his 8-circuit model of consciousness and the like, has just struck me as batshit insane and completely idiotic.

It's a new translation that has received some good reviews. The book has a high quality binding too.
>>
>>7589213
There is a planned reprint but it's been heavily delayed from the original release date Spring 2015 to now being at the earliest sometime 2017. The small publishing house that owns the rights to it can barely afford a printer apparently.
>>
>>7589660
Not the guy you're replying to, but how did this happen?

Was the book unknown for years until someone realized it was actually great? And then the publisher realized they were sitting on a gold mine but is just too inept to print more and too proud to sell the rights to someone who can get it printed?

I don't know the full story but the original edition of the novel was published under a large, reputable and respected publisher (Knopf). For some reason though the author decided to draw back the copyright for the book and handed it to a much smaller publisher, and the book faded into obscurity only to be rediscovered by the internet.

Leary and McKenna are fucking insane and did decades of damage to the psychedelic movement.

This is coming from a person who believes we should prescribe shrooms as an antidepressant.

The author requested the book's production be stopped. It always had some degree of fame.
