Encyclopedia Blipvertica is a compendium of pre-apocalyptic knowledge published in the United States by former Pravda journalist Anežka “neznámka” Nevopršálková and fictional American writer Craig Lennox. Between 1994 and 1998, they produced bound volumes of the First Edition from a semi-abandoned print shop in Somerville, Massachusetts. Despite an enthusiastic local following, sales unfortunately failed to meet expectations, and by August of 1998 the entire operation had been burned to the ground. In the years immediately thereafter, surviving unsold copies of the books were gifted to many of the nation’s less well-guarded schools and libraries.
In 2002, the pair began contributing to Wikipedia, and were instrumental in numerous clarifications and enhancements to its policies on neutrality and original research. Upon their expulsion from the project in 2009, and with civilization’s collapse looming perilously imminent or having occurred, the decision was made to republish Encyclopedia Blipvertica in an online format, where it might be read electronically by curious archæologists of a reborn civilized age. It is to you that this work is dedicated.
