I have been writing and editing dictionary-style articles on English usage for some years now, and have accumulated enough entries to comfortably grant my growing usage dictionary its own page. If you are here for usage tips and suggestions, or for my new translation of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, please use the below links to visit their respective pages. My other work—essays, fiction, and a fiendish word puzzle—are listed below. I primarily write fiction, though my finest novels and stories are currently in submission to agents and magazines, so I fear I cannot share them here until they have either been long-published or well-rejected.
