Reviews

This page contains links in bibliographic order to reviews I have written over the years, mostly ooks but also on music. Please enjoy them.

Readers, publishers and publicists can contact me with suggestions for new reviews. I am open to most subjects but generally I only review works relevant to my own research and interests.
