Pynchon Wiki: Against the Day
Welcome to the PynchonWiki
This is newly created and eventually most of the guides currently available here will be migrated and wikified so that registered users of this wiki can create pages and make changes.
We'd like to thank Mr David Kipen for being the first contributor to this eventually historical website. You can read the beginnings of his annotation of the Against the Day blurb, written by Thomas Pynchon, which appeared, disappeared and reappared at Amazon.com.
If you would like to be a contributor to this wiki, please register (by clicking on the "register" link on the top right.
We have a few conventions we ask that you follow:
When creating a new page, if its information pertains to one (and only one) specific Pynchon novel, please preface it with the following identifiers:
- ATD = Against the Day
- GR = Gravity's Rainbow
- MD = Mason & Dixon
- V = V.
- CL49 = Crying of Lot 49
For example, we're starting a chapter-by-chapter annotation of Against the Day, and the first chapter is ATD Chapter 1.
If you'd like to start an alphabetical page for Gravity's Rainbow, you'd use GR - A.
Here's some info on Wiki naming conventions.
Here's a good page on editing wiki text.
I will be providing more support for using this wiki in the coming weeks. Feel free to contact me (tim at hyperarts dot com) with any questions.
Thanks, and enjoy...
