This isn’t a complete list. I’m not certain I’m capable of making a complete list. It’s some of it. Maybe 10%. Maybe less.
This list is especially incomplete in the matter of book reviews and short non-fiction. More of my work is gradually being put online at Academia.com. Some of my writing is also being shared with patrons on Patreon. Check there for short pieces, unpublished papers and selections of my writing from BiblioBuffet and Food History. My Patrons have voted and there will be an edition of some of my non-fiction out next year.
The short story list is more complete than the rest, although now I have a short story collection out (see my book page) it’s easier to find many of the stories there. I’ve asterisked those that also appear in Mountains of the Mind. There are more stories in the collection than appear on this list, partly because I wrote new ones for it, and partly because some of my missing stories appeared in a smelly box under my mother’s house.
I’ve given links to where stories and articles can be found where I can find them.
If there is any out of print work of mine that you’d like to see republished, email me using the web form and I’ll see what I can do. Some things are gone forever, so I promise only to try…
