He has edited several collections, among them qBlack Waterq; qThe Anthology of Fantastic Literatureq and qThe Gates of Paradise: the Anthology of Erotic Short Fictionq. He has also authored, for Bayeux Arts, qKipling: A Brief Biographyq.The essay is the only literary form which confesses, in its very name, that the rash act known as writing is really a leap in the dark. ... The perfect essay has never been written, for the simple reason that the essay has never really been written.
