Hey /lit/ I got a copy of The Odyssey translated by a dude called Robert Fitzgerald. Did I goof or is it a good translation?
Don't even mention "le day of the rope"
Pic is inside my favourite one, Voltaire and Rousseau in Glasgow. Christ, I could walk in to that place and spend all my money.
I'm an editor for a literary magazine. Ask me anything about publishing or whatever.

/pol/ and /r9k/ self-identified redpilled conservative white male here:
Are you Jewish?
Are you under company policy to only publish female SJW writers who are trying to subvert Western civilization through degeneracy and the propagation and valorization of interracial relationships?
Do you hate white heterosexual male writers of the conservative bend?
Anyone read the First Law trilogy?
I read it some time ago and I really enjoyed Sand dan Glokta (http://firstlaw.wikia.com/wiki/Glokta).
Can someone recommend some books with similar characters?
Are you a fan of his writing style? Who was the best translator? What is his best book?
I bet in real life Nietzsche was autistic in the exact same way that Michio Kaku is autistic and freaks out every time Jim Norton says hello to him in the elevator.
>Hey, Herr Nietzsche, good morn--
>A-ahh!! Oh, you startled me. I'm dynamite.
I found a near complete set of this series in a local charity shop. Which ones are good? Does the series become terrible at any point? I got the first three, is it worth getting any others?
First three, last two. Everything else in between is a character study without significant impact on central plot. That being said, I enjoyed them all and kept on reading through. If you want to keep reading them, do, and if not, don't.
What is the best translator for the greeks? I've read some meditations on a shit translation online and still loved it. I want to pick up a nice copy. Which is best and why?

I've discovered Borges only recently but wow...earth shattering it was. Been on Abebooks these past few months buying first editions of everything he's written. Damn near fortune but the cover for dream tigers and Ficciones are wonderful.
