Thomas Pynchon's Books Finally Getting The Digital Treatment
via Page Views:
Penguin Press has announced that Thomas Pynchon's books will finally be made available in eBook formats. The famously reclusive author has, until now, shunned digital conversions for his seven novels and one story collection.
In a move that should surprise no one, Pynchon declined comment. However, Ann Godoff, president and editor-in-chief of Penguin, told the New York Times that “there has been a great desire to have all of Tom’s books in digital format now, for many years. He didn’t want to not be part of that.”
She added that “every writer wants to have as many readers as they can possibly get. But I don’t think this will change his public profile, in terms of him being out there in public. In fact, I know it won’t.”
Another author folds. Pretty soon our plot to destroy all physical books and foist eReaders upon the masses shall be complete!
