People who’ve followed Infinite Zombies from the time it started up as a spin-off of the original Infinite Summer blog will know very well who Matt Bucher is. The maintainer of the wallace-l discussion list, publisher of Greg Carlisle’s outstanding Infinite Jest reference Elegant Complexity, and all-around go-to guy in the Wallace community, he wrote the occasional post for the original IS project. Those who hopped on the IZ group read bandwagon more recently will know Matt as the fearless leader of the 2666 read over at http://bolanobolano.com. Matt runs a blog of growing fame at which he posts interesting screen grabs from Google Street View, he maintains a twitter stream that I never overlook, and he can be found elsewhere on the web at http://mattbucher.com.
When I floated the idea of a Moby-Dick group read, he was enthusiastic about reading along, and I’m really happy to announce that he’ll be posting here as we make our way through the book. The discussion is sure to be the richer for it.
