Updates: Pynchon and Cortázar are astonishing; otherwise, literature has been rather underwhelming. Apologies for the prolonged absence. It will probably be prolong(er).

'If there is anything that might be able to act as some sort of non-destructive "key" to Pale Fire, I think, it is the following passage: "We are absurdly accustomed to the miracle of a few written signs being able to contain immortal imagery, involutions of thought, new worlds with live people, speaking, weeping, laughing.  We take it for granted so simply that in a sense, by the very act of brutish routine acceptance, we undo the work of the ages, the history of the gradual elaboration of poetical description and construction, from the treeman to Browning, from the caveman to Keats.  What if we awake one day, all of us, and find ourselves

Apparently I won the One-Act Play Contest, which is awesome? Mostly because I'll get to see "Welcome Home" made into a film (or several), which is extra-awesome? And now it got a DD, too, and for some reason I just can't lay off the question marks? Seriously, though, effusive thanks to BeccaJS (https://www.deviantart.com/beccajs) and lovetodeviate (https://www.deviantart.com/lovetodeviate) and O-Uaglione (https://www.deviantart.com/o-uaglione) and everyone who donated prizes and everyone who commented and faved, and preemptive thanks to everyone who will be creating film interpretations in the near future. Incidentally, the fact that I can't write fiction anymore has surpassed the point of the "rather troubling." Semester's (finally) started

I stumbled upon on one of your stories I printed out and I thought I would check your profile again. I am sure you don't come on here anymore, but I wanted to tell you that you are one of my favorite writers here on DA. That is all I wanted to say. :)
O NOES I R BANNED!

O NOES HOW R I POSTING THIS?

O NOES APRIL FIRSTS!
Is Gravity's Rainbow Pynchon's best novel? V. looks pretty interesting actually.

While I'm at it what are some other good modern/postmodern novels? Faulkner and Woolf are oft-mentioned names. Beckett looks promising.
I'd say yes, definitely, though I'm hardly an expert and the only others I've read are The Crying of Lot 49 and Mason & Dixon (both of which are also excellent).

Faulkner, Woolf, and Beckett are some of my favorites ever! I still think that Woolf's The Waves is the best thing ever written. My top five (not including that or GR, as they've already been mentioned): The Sound and the Fury (Faulkner), Pale Fire, Lolita (both Nabokov), To the Lighthouse (Woolf), Ulysses (Joyce). Those aren't really postmodern, though (wait, that's a lie, Pale Fire is); for that I'd suggest stuff by Paul Auster, Julio Cortázar, Donald Barthelme. If Danielewski's House of Leaves counts (does it? to be honest, I'm not entirely certain where the boundaries lie), then definitely definitely that.

Oh man, I could go on.
Thanks. I've actually started reading V. and it's great.
What the fucktart happened to all your deviations?!
I ate them. Yummy.
