Nonfiction and Editing


I write just a bunch of nonfiction and edit things, too - here's a bibliography of that. Whenever something is available online, they're linked below.

Here's a list of my nonfiction and editing projects.

Selected Nonfiction and Editing Bibliography

Stories from a Perilous Youth:
    A Memoir

Underway! Writing sections as stories come to mind. During a visit to Lawrence when he won the Sturgeon Award, after telling one another stories late into the night, author Andy Duncan prompted me to start writing them down. Blame him.

Updates as I make progress!

Frederik Pohl:
    Mr. Science Fiction (A Love Story)

Foundation: The International Review of Science Fiction, issue 117 (Spring-Summer 2014).

I've known and worked with Fred Pohl since 1992, when I moved to Lawrence, Kansas, to study SF writing and the literature and teaching thereof. Having the opportunity to study with two of my literary heroes - SF Grand Masters Frederik Pohl and James Gunn - humbles me beyond expression. Part of what I tried to express in this feature essay is how important Fred was for me as a writer and person. Rest in peace, Fred; you changed our world for the better.

Science on Tap:
    Science Fiction as Mythologies for a Changing Age

For this summer's event, I gave a short presentation and then led a conversation about SF as the mythology of our time.
