Bibliography

Below is a bibliography of stuff I’ve written and will admit to. It is, I realise, about four years out of date, but I hope to rectify that over the summer. Excluded are oral presentations at conferences, on the basis that if they’re any good I tend to retrofit them for publication in writing, and if they’re not I’d like them buried in soft peat. Some pieces are available online and so are underlined as links. Also underlined are books I’ve contributed to; the link will take you to a page on this site with cover jpegs, price and ordering details. As will be apparent, I’m especially indebted to The New York Review of Science Fiction (and their invaluable Excel checklist of all back issues).
