Here is a list of my publications, forthcomming pieces, and items I have either started to write or plan to write. I also include letters, replies to queries, and mentions of my work here. When possible I have included links to copies of the articles. I did not include articles that I thought were insignificant, out-of-date, or I do not have the publisher's permission to put them online.. However, if you are interested in an item that does not have a link, then please email me and I will see what we can arrange.

Works in Progress

The following pieces are in various states of completion. Some are outlined and others have a first or second draft. The journals that I plan to submit these articles to for consideration are not aware of my plans, nor have they accepted the articles for publication. I list these works in the order in which I hope to complete them.

Although I have written a considerable amount, this book still requires many more hours of effort that I no longer have available to me. I am unsure what my ultimate plan is for this book.
