Ooo. Novel with index. I didn't know about that one. In library school I wrote a paper on novels with indexes. It's not very good but still available online, the last link on this page: http://www.madinkbeard.com/library/
Nice, thanks for pointing out your paper Derik. I think I need to try my hand at indexing a work of fiction. Maybe Jakob von Gunten, since I can get some tips from Helen Mirra!
The paper reminds me that I ought to read Harry Mathews. This 'novel' of sorts (also in pdf) also has an index: http://www.underneaththebunker.com/Page52.pdf
I am reminded of Pliny.http://www.spaceship-earth.de/OrigLit/Pliny.htm
Wow, ctorre -- keep leaving comments, please. I'm going to read Pliny immediately: "Showers of milk, blood, flesh, iron, wool, bricks. Portents. Stones falling from the sky - Anaxagoras as to."Georgy, your sites are incredible, keep it up!Derik, thanks for the index paper. My index shopping list is almost complete.
I didn't mean to spur on any further book purchasing gluttony! Some of those books in my paper are not very good to actually, you know, read.
