I write and teach about the history of astronomy. My research has appeared in Historical Studies in the Natural Sciences, Mercury, Endeavour, and Annals of Science. My book from University of Pittsburgh Press examines the stellar astronomy of the nineteenth-century British astronomer Sir John Herschel.
I also write fiction, which has appeared in Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show, Lore, Shimmer, Andromeda Spaceways, AE: The Canadian Science Fiction Review, and more. My first collection of short stories, Trees & Other Wonders, is available on Amazon. I’m the author of a science fiction novel, First Fleet, published by Axiomatic Publishing.
I review works of science fiction and fantasy as well as history of astronomy texts and popular astronomy books. My reviews have appeared in Strange Horizons, Black Gate, Journal for the History of Astronomy, Isis, and The Planetarian. If you have a work you would like me to consider for review, please contact me.
