Contest Update


Last week I announced a contest looking for hints of themes similar to those in The Pale King that might appear in Wallace’s earlier work. I’ve received a lot of great entries, but we still have a week left before the deadline (May 25).

Prizes now include posters of Sam Potts’ amazing Infinite Jest Diagram (which you can’t even buy anymore).

Other prizes include copies of David Lipsky’s book Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip With David Foster Wallace.

Copies of Consider David Foster Wallace: Critical Essays edited by David Hering.

And a few other assorted goodies as other prizes.

Contest #1: Did any theme or idea in The Pale King remind you of Wallace’s earlier work?

Contest #2: What is the single best word in The Pale King?

Submit your entries by emailing

[Many thanks to Sam Potts, Random House, and SSMG Press.]
