Archive – My Work for Ferretbrain

From 2010 to 2014, I wrote about a variety of things for the ezine Ferretbrain. With the news that the site will be ceasing operation on April 30th, 2019, I have taken the liberty of archiving all of the reviews and articles I ever wrote for the side, converted them into PDFs, and made them available for your perusal below. I’m a great believer in keeping online work available for future readers, and I enjoyed writing many of these pieces, so they will remain here until either I decide to vanish from the Internet entirely or civilization collapses (in which case I hope one of you kind souls out that has founded an neo-Roman Catholic abbey in my name and begun producing illuminated versions of my reviews).
