Chronological Indexes

Below is a list of all my earlier texts posted to this site preceding my work at the Chicago Reader – most of which can now also be found by checking the dates prior to 1987 in the right-hand column — as well as some non-Reader texts published since August 1987 that have been posted here. The main purpose behind this second list, which is very far from exhaustive, is to provide texts that weren’t written specifically for this site (found in the above list) or for the Reader.

Here are some abbreviations for the publications in which some of the pieces below appeared: AF: American Film, BO: Bard Observer, CDCE: Cahiers du Cinéma España/Caimán Cuadernos de Cine, CO: Camera Obscura, FC: Film Comment, FQ: Film Quarterly, MSF: The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, MFB: Monthly Film Bulletin, R: Rouge,  S&S: Sight and Sound, SN: Soho News, SS: Stop Smiling, TO: Take One, VT: Video Times, VV: The Village Voice.
