There has been considerable speculation about whether Pynchon's story "Under the Rose" was written before V. or simply extracted from the manuscript, published separately, and then extensively revised as Chapter 3 of the novel. David cowart has put forward evidence for the latter hypothesis, although the question will not be answered definitely until the manuscript of v. comes to light.
