Writing

In a stab at “reputation management”, tablets which is what overpriced fuckers are calling self-promotion these days, viagra I list recent writing published online.
(Bound to remain out-of-date at all times other than those when I have a book overdue to the publisher.

Update: this is horribly out of date. AND I have a book due in. None of which is relevant to you, and because I am the only turd on the planet who ever visits this page.)
