Word Frequencies in Three of Thomas Pynchon's Novels

(Th-those would be V., The Crying of Lot 49, and Gravity's Rainbow, natch.)

The word frequency analysis for this isn't perfect: for example, there are hyphenated words for page breaks that end up preserved. Also, there are bound to be basic errors from the OCR source text. I ran the words through a "stop list" to remove very common English words, as well as the character names Profane, Stencil, Oedipa, Metzger, and Slothrop, which appeared way too often and skewed the data.

I used Daniel Shiffman's wordwrap in my code. The UI elements are generated by controlP5.
