David Foster Wallace, Pulitzer Prize-nominated novelist, MacArthur “Genius” Fellow, and professor of literature at Pomona College, died six years ago last week at the height of his intellectual prowess. By turns hilarious and high-minded, harrowing and opaque, DFW’s novels, short stories, and essays touched hearts around the world. The Howling Fantods may appear to be just another obsequious fan site, but upon closer inspection, a world unfolds. The Front Page features continually updated blogs from numerous Foster enthusiasts and DFW 1962-2008 leads to dozens of obituaries and remembrances from around the web. For readers unfamiliar with his work, New to DFW? provides a welcome overview of the author’s life and written projects. For old fans or new converts, there is plenty on this website to enjoy.
