This morning, Carolyn Kellogg reported on web rumors about a new novel by Thomas Pynchon. Now, Penguin Press, Pynchon’s publisher, confirms that there is, indeed, a new novel by the reclusive author, to be published in August 2009.

As for the other rumored details -- that it’s a noir novel of about 400 pages, set in the world of 1960s psychedelia -- Penguin is remaining silent ... for the time being.


But stay tuned: The rumor mill continues to grind.
