I write a lot of things. Some people read them. 

I've written three books

  • Parental Advisory: Music Censorship in America (HarperCollins, 2001).
  • The Dead Travel Fast: Stalking Vampires From Nosferatu to Count Chocula (St Martins, 2007).
  • Giving Up The Ghost: A Story about Friendship, 80s Rock, a Lost Scrap of Paper, and What It Means to Be Haunted (Random House, 2013).

Plus a lot of articles, essays, features, and posts for various publications, some you've heard of, some you haven't. 


There is no online archive of my writing.

However, here are some links to various things scattered around the Internet that I've written.
