On this page, you will find a growing collection of writings that were either never published or substantially changed (most likely abbreviated), or that have been published elsewhere but that I have received permission to share here. Please be patient as requests for permission to share previously published material might take a while, and I do take copyright limitations very seriously because I know what it takes to create a book. Please protect my copyright in return and support the journals or publishers who have kindly given me permission to share some previously published material.
