Below, in no particular order, are links to essays, reviews & interviews I've published in the distant past. They're probably of little interest to anyone but me. But what the hell.
(Note: if you're looking for the beginning of my vampire novel, go here.)
"On Eavesdropping" - an essay in Eclectica.

"Cultural Masturbation" - yet another essay in Eclectica.
"You're Stupid. Prove You're Not." - and still another essay in Eclectica.

It's quite a career so far, I know. Talk about humble beginnings...
