He believes that great fantasy books are the same thing as great literature.

Best Poetry Books

Since its Poetry Month I thought it would be an apt time to share some of the best poetry books Ive ever read. If you are looking for indelible imagery, clever word play, and pathos all delivered in a musical compactness that novels never seem to achieve, then poetry is your genre. Ive gathered here some of the most revered works of poetry from the classical world, the romantics, and surrealists,

Splatterism: The Tragic Recollections of A Minotaur Assailant (An Upbuilding Edifying Discourse) (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: A failed suicide attempt unites the last living minotaur, Evander, with the eminent sorcerer and perfidious rake Scammander, who might have lost all of his magical knowledge or might have just stashed it elsewhere to make room for his biggest plot yet. Bonded by suffering and a special antipathy for humanity, the two set out to do what all villains dream of: destroying the world, one civilization at a time. But how can two creatures annihilate the world? This is the pathos-filled recollection of the Beginning of the End, narrated, against his will, by the murderer Evander. It is by turns pithy, lyrical, and harrowing, and best when read in solitude, perhaps under a full moon. Kindly “eliciting” the tale from Evander is Tristan D’Mure, who loved the world the way it was, and will do all that he must to make sure he obtains the truth of how the world was nearly destroyed—and find Scammander, who is once again mysteriously missing… Pars Prima is a blood soaked novella of 21,000 words, constituting a grizzly, inclement prelude which is to be succeeded by two novel length entries.

“We do not despise all those with vices, but we do despise all those without a single virtue.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

Søren Kierkegaard
“It is perfectly true, as philosophers say, that life must be understood backwards. But they forget the other proposition, that it must be lived forwards.”
Søren Kierkegaard

Arthur Schopenhauer
“There is not much to be got anywhere in the world. It is filled with misery and pain; if a man escapes these, boredeom lies in wait for him at every corner. Nay more; it is evil which generally has the upper hand, and folly that makes the most noise. Fate is cruel and mankind pitiable.”
Arthur Schopenhauer, The Wisdom of Life

Giacomo Leopardi
“Death is not an evil, because it frees us from all evils, and while it takes away good things, it takes away also the desire for them. Old age is the supreme evil, because it deprives us of all pleasures, leaving us only the appetite for them, and it brings with it all sufferings. Nevertheless, we fear death, and we desire old age.”
Giacomo Leopardi
