What the heck is the Hoboken Chicken Emergencyclopedia anyhow?

The Hoboken Chicken Emergencyclopedia aims to be the complete reader's guide to the world of Daniel Pinkwater. It consists of two main parts: the index and the book synopses.

The index functions like a normal encyclopedia. It is an alphabetical listing of all things Pinkwater; every named character from all of the books listed by both first and last name as well as lots of details and interesting tidbits. The index was compiled by Hal Johnson with little bits and pieces added by others.

The book synopses exist in only embryonic form. What I would eventually like to see is a page for each book with a basic plot synopsis and some investigation into the ways the characters and themes in the book fit in with the rest of the Pinkwater universe. I have only written two so far; The Muffin Fiend and Tooth-Gnasher Superflash.

I would also like to add an archive of chapters from Kevin Shapiro, Boy Orphan. So far, this has not happened at all. Any takers for putting this together?

The Emergencyclopedia is always looking for submissions and new ideas. If you have one, email it to me!
