In 2012 P.S. Publishing (the British publisher, not the vanity press) will publish my The Encyclopedia of Pulp Heroes, a 750,000 word encyclopedia with descriptive entries on over 6400 series characters from global popular culture of 1902-1945, including pulps, slicks, series fiction, comic strips, radio serials, movie serials, and international series fiction. (A somewhat typical range of characters from the book is here). After that will come The Encyclopedia of Golden Age Detectives (2012?), a 300,000 word encyclopedia of detectives appearing from 1902 to 1945 in novels, pulps, slicks, radio serials, and international fiction. After that will come The Victorians For Freshmen (2014?). I'm also working on becoming a published novelist, but that probably won't happen for a couple of years. I also write semi-regularly for No Fear of the Future; a somewhat typical example of my work there is An Alternate History of Chinese Science Fiction, which was a finalist for the Sidewise Award.
Finally, my story "The Student and the Rats" appeared in the "Clockwork Jungle" issue of Shimmer, and my story "Unpublished Pages from the Encyclopedia of Fantastic Victoriana" will appear in the Vandermeers' anthology Steampunk Reloaded.
I spend most of my time these days on Twitter, as @jessnevins. I also have a Tumblr account</a>.
I am a reference librarian at Lone Star Community College in Tomball, Texas, the husband of Alicia, father of Henry Ian, and Alpha Male and foodgiver to Tuco (chihuahua) and Daisy (catahoula leopard).
