Book Announcement


I know this blog has been quiet for too long. The reason for this was that I have been busy finishing my book on Philip K. Dick. It is being published by a great small press specializing in Philip K. Dick Studies: Wide Books. The book is available now from their Web site. I have also started teaching again, which has been a drain on my time. I am now eager to re-start this project.

See you in a few days, when we will consider “Solar Lottery.”

  1. Hi there.I haven’t heard from you for awhile,despite sending comments recently.I thought you might like to know I’ve read your book,and have a review on Amazon.

    Hope to hear from you soon,I like to know what you think about my replies to your stuff.Are you busy at present?

      I am reading your comments and saw your flattering review. Thanks.

      I have been trying to get this blog going again but there are a few blocks. (1) The publication of the book has made it hard for me to get back into writing about Dick, (2) I am working on Lovecraft, (3) I have started teaching again and classes keep be busy and exhausted, and (4) baseball.

      • I thought my review was honest but fair,but I’m pleased you found it flattering.Anyway,good luck with what you’re doing,especially the Lovecraft project.Will that be on your Neither Kings or Americans blog?

      • tashqueedagg says:

        No. I am not sure I will revive that blog, until I can get into the mood or reading literature again. It will come again. In any case, I will take my Lovecraft stuff to an academic press.

        For Lovecraft, my focus is on the Atlantic context of his work: Networks of knowledge, the iconography of the sailor, horrors from the sea, etc.

      • I see,I wondered.I have read some Lovecraft,but have not got into his stuff that deeply as I have into Dick.

  2. I did comment you might remember,on the NKNA blog about him.

    • tashqueedagg says:

      Maybe. I am pretty ashamed of those posts. I barely understood Lovecraft at the time. (Looking back I probably botched most of those writers I covered in my manic phase.)

      • I don’t know.You did say it was a pretty general blog about American writers,so it’s not surprising there was nothing specialised if that’s what you mean.I thought I did make significant comments about PKD.

        I don’t know if I’ll be reading Lovecraft again.I did quite like his stuff when I did briefly.It was so darkly cold and dense.
