Imagine a centralized digital repository of full-text editions of all of [[Norman Mailer]]'s works — accessible on any device. Imagine a fully searchable database of primary works by Mailer and secondary works by scholars, journalists, and historians. Imagine this collection is fully responsive to users' needs: timelines show how Mailer's works fit chronologically into his biography; intertextual references, keywords, and phrases provide visual connections between novels, essays, letters, criticism, film, television, and interviews; pages display scholarly annotations about key characters and themes in Mailer's work, emphasizing the community's ability to add additional multimodal posts, comments, links, and insights about the material. Imagine a digital storehouse containing artifacts of Mailer's life — a freely accessible digital collection curated by the very people Mailer has influenced with his works. Project Mailer could carry the name of Mailer into a new digital space: not necessarily a better space than print, but arguably a necessary move to further Mailer’s legacy.
