This site has gotten
large. It started, more than a decade ago, as a personal page attached
to my publishing company's website.
As a result, it still has some resume-ish elements
here and there. To help you skip that stuff and get to something more
interesting, here is a list of recommended pages to visit:
1. 1616: The World in Motion
This is the project that has occupied my time for the past couple of years. The book will come out in February 2012. Meanwhile, here's a page that links to various aspects of the project.
2. Tom's Glossary of Book Publishing Terms
An inside look at the book publishing industry. And more publishing stuff.
This is where I post information about print and electronic publishing, and more.
4. Tom's Book of Days
In the early years I spent the most time on Tom's Book of Days.Maybe its a little different from the average "this day in history" offering.
If you are interested in Mesoamerica this guide
to the world of the Maya might have something for you.
A New Yi jing (I Ching)
Speaking of new stuff, you can cast
a hexagram here. A nice new divinatory rendering of the Chinese
classic of changes. Also, if you're interested in Chinese art and culture,
you might also be interested in Taoism
and the Art of China or Chinese Jade.
And, if you're visiting the Bay Area, I have photos
of the Asian Art Museum.
Essays on Literary Topics
Essays on Lewis Carroll, Horace
Walpole, or the trickster, for example.
See my writing page for more.

Some fun stuff here. For
example, famous last words, for one.

I can't believe I almost forgot the
Typehead Chronicles, that font-astic font
