This book is terrible. This book is Reddit incarnate. There is no doubt about that. However, I have a strong compulsion to buy it. Ishmael, I know you're out there. Please put it back up on Lulu or provide a download link-not just the viewable Google Doc. I'll give you your few shekels, you won't even have to donate it to charity.
Now, so this can stay on the board until Ishmael sees it, let's discuss this "book" and compare it to the /lit/ canon. How does it hold up to Tundra, the sequels, Kolsti, and Hypersphere? Did we automatically assume it was an abomination without taking the time to look into it? Should we have given it the benefit of the doubt?
Obviously it's awful, it's the reddit users wanting to do a "oo me too!" in the wake of Hypersphere. I tried to tell them that it would turn out awful just like tundra 2 but they didn't listen.
Not by any means. The concept of lit writing a book together is the only similar thing. Tundra 2 is shit, possibly below pictures of DFW. Tundra 3 and Kolsti are surprisingly decent in comparison.
>Pictures of DFW
link to this? only reference in google is to this thread
I would have shared the Warosu archived thread that skyrocketed interest in what was to become Hypersphere, but it's offline. I can imagine Ishmael's work is parody, more so Tundra: Miami. Hypersphere just seemed to work out in suddenness, no immediate predecessor (unless you count Defunct).
Yeah, look, I made this book to prove just how much reddit has fucked up this board.
And if you were part of making this book, you're the cancer that's killing /lit/.
I am not going to put this book back up on Lulu, because people shouldn't be paying money for reddit-tier shit. As for the one idiot that bought it though, I fulfilled my promise of donating the money to the charity and $2 was donated to WikiLeaks.
Again, this book was purely made to show just how much that one post to /r/4chan has ruined this board.
Yeah yeah okay damage control we get it. Now put it back up, I want every bit of /lit/ history, including Reddit's invasion and attempted assimilation. At least when everyone started calling it out.
This book is for faggots. Go back to Reddit.
Obvious fucking redditor in disguise being self depreciative then immediately trying to sneak this decisively reddit canon book into the /lit/ canon.
/lit/ is for the discussion of literature. Please take your discussion of this ""book"" of reddit canon to >>>/r/books
how to detect a redditor - he thinks Hypersphere was ann 'oo me too' of tundra 2, or that tundra 2 was even a large work. Seriously you make it so obvious
I seem to remember the OP having more than just Ishmael as his trip, suspicous
>I made this book to prove just how much Reddit has fucked up this board
>thinking Tundra 2 was the last /lit/ book before Hypersphere
Don't care about the reputation, this trip was only used for the book.
If I took the route of Hypersphere did and just let everyone do whatever the fuck they wanted, reddit wouldn't have added their content to it. Why? Because it wouldn't be organized, it wouldn't be controlled by one person making all the real decisions.
It's back up on Lulu, and you can still read it on the Google Drive link if you still have it. I just don't want people to pay money for the shit that is killing this board.
>tfw not a faggot redditor
>only really been there to see some raids organized by other boards
>been browsing 4chan since 2006
>made a story for Pictures of DFW.
>It's so bad that people now think I'm a redditor
The Book of Despair
It started off good, intentionally pretentious and hints of 4chan's absurdist shock humour, had a lot of ideas for it but run out of time and half-assed the last parts.
I'll do better next time once the reddit filth is dealt with and the next project due.
What was the /lit/ post on reddit? I was just assuming that some shitposters from one of the shitposting boards were trying to push the 'reddit' meme here. Did something actually happen? Did /lit/ get famous?
A bunch of different 4chan things have appeared on Reddit and Imgur lately. Redditors are coming here and the Reddit scare is half shiteposting and half seriousness. Bumping with image.
Flashbird and the peach farmer are the only worthwhile books to come out of /lit/.
Nice defence, dumbass.
You were defending yourself for so long over claims of it being reddit-teir and that it was only a small project. You were serious about it. Admit it, no one even cares.
