I will be on sabbatical during the Spring semester writing a book on British science fiction author J.G. Ballard for the University of Illinois Press's Modern Masters of Science Fiction Series. I am also at work on a trilogy of plays and a collection of short fiction as well as the daily operations of my publishing company Anti-Oedipus Press. I look forward to getting back to teaching this summer! My courses will include online offerings of ENG 2050: African American Literature, ENG 3830: Introduction to Fiction Writing, and ENG 3000: Business Writing. In the meantime, I hope everybody has a productive and enjoyable semester.
