Orbit: Writing Around Pynchon

"Certainly he is still the most important writer alive" - Harold Bloom, 2011

Orbit: Writing Around Pynchon is an Open Access, peer reviewed e-journal of scholarly work pertaining to the writings of Thomas Pynchon.

The journal aims to publish high quality, rigorously reviewed and innovative scholarly material on the works of Thomas Pynchon, related authors and adjacent fields, free-of-charge at all stages (no OA fees or subscriptions costs) by being a Gold, Libre Open Access journal. We aim to review and publish material received within five months by abandoning the traditional “issue” model in favour of a rolling system and to, consequentially, fare well under research assessment metrics.
