Proposals are being sought for an edited collection of essays that examine Thomas Pynchon's "California novels" (The Crying of Lot 49, Vineland, and Inherent Vice) as a group and/or his use or representation of California in his fiction and other writing. Papers on other related topics, such as the relation of Pynchon's work to that of other California writers, or even attempts at biographical criticism focusing on his California experiences, are also welcome.
