    "There's not a writer working on television, graphic novels or computer games today who wasn't influenced directly or indirectly by Thomas Pynchon."I was not criticizing Pynchon, no at all. I've very much liked what I've read by him. I was saying that your assertion that the mainstream was turned off by his non-sequential chronology was undercut by the popularity of many non-sequential media. And given that you just agreed that TV, graphic novels and computer games, all popular media, adopt this jumping around in time, how can you simultaneously assert that it hinders popularity?Mark
