joesluck.jpgAs we enter the final week of our World’s Longest Literary Remix contest, submissions are still pouring in–including editor Meryl Gross‘ elegant use of David Foster Wallace‘s effusive footnotes to brighten up a dull patch of a novel. Read her complete submission after the jump.

Gross joined a brave crew of readers in rewriting one page from a Horatio Alger novel for fun and prizes–read his entry after the jump. 150 pre-registered GalleyCat Reviews readers have signed up to rewrite one page of Joe’s Luck: Always Wide Awake (cover pictured, via).

We will publish the remixed text as a free digital book. Each remix contributor will be eligible for a random drawing of special giveaway prizes. If you want to participate in the next remix contest, email GalleyCat to get on the list.
