That Dungeons and Dragons Bio

Timothy Morton is Professor of English (Literature and the Environment) at the University of California, Davis. Prior to this he was a Druid, a Neutral Evil Magic User, an Illusionist–Cleric (his favorite) and a character he made up called a Taoist (details on request). He is the author of Realist Magic (Open Humanities Press, forthcoming), The Ecological Thought (Harvard UP, 2010), Ecology without Nature (Harvard UP, 2007), seven other books and over seventy essays on philosophy, ecology, literature, food and music. He still has uneasy memories about his DM transporting him to a world that turned out to be inhabited by beings from the Cthulhu mythos. He is currently finishing Hyperobjects. And he blogs regularly at http://www.ecologywithoutnature.blogspot.com

I'll be honest, I had an unfruitful struggle with Ecology without Nature, but nevertheless I'm definitely interested in this concept, and will be checking out Realist Magic when it comes out. Have you followed John Michael Greer's blog, at all?

Greer's Blog has been on my list of favourites for some time too. It certainly may interest you, some of the political commentary is insightful and thought-provoking, plus his stuff on Green Wizardry is challenging. Oddly I first came to some of his material through Pagan and Religious Studies, but I've since come to his Peak Oil and overshoot materials in the last year. His The Long Descent and The Ecotechnic Future are IMO excellent.
