Thomas Pynchon goes to the Doctor:

After my father’s last meeting with Thomas Pynchon, I came to town to visit. My father handed me the autographed copy of Gravity’s Rainbow. On the title page, Pynchon had written “Dr. Blumenthal: 10 Pages q-i-d for Mesopolitosis.” Signed, “Thomas Pynchon”. I have no idea what Mesopolitosis is. I assume he made it up.
