Welcome to the site, and thanks for stopping by.

* (A note on the various sections. The links represent just a few years' worth of published output in each case. Every effort is being made to bring the sections up to date, with about 1000 links left to go, but the sections will necessarily always be piecemeal, due to links coming down, venues folding, and certain works never being made available online. The site is intended as a unique online museum of one author's writings and art, and though the wings/galleries are not yet as full as they will be, you should find plenty to keep you busy as everything else is filled in. Thank you for your patience.)
