Essays

I post to the main blog (front page of the site) on a more or less daily basis.

Many of these entries are Twitter-like posts of only fleeting relevance. Something happens, I comment. I move on. 

The entries linked below are longer pieces that I see as having a longer shelf life. The topics range from book publishing and writing to politics and culture.

The tone, likewise, varies from the purely informative and the lighthearted, to the unabashedly opinionated.
