My interests include Romantic and Victorian British fiction, theories of the literary fantastic, folklore, creative writing (especially prose), popular culture, theories of the novel, and contemporary literature. Currently working on literary treatments of fairyland, Br?(C)ton folklore, a collection of literature of the fantastic, two novels, a short-story collection, and several screenplays.
