PANDAEMONIUM: THE ESSENTIAL LIST

intro 1

Pandaemonium is four years old. (The birthday was actually last month, but I’m never good with dates…) I thought that it was time I updated my list of ‘essential readings’ from the blog that I publish on my Introduction page. So, for those who have not read them yet, here are 21 essays, talks and reviews from over the past four years that I think best set out my arguments and ideas. And if you want even more, there is a longer (but hopefully no less essential) list of 99. This shorter list is in random order; the longer on the Introduction page in chronological order.

My thanks to everyone who has read, commented on and supported Pandaemonium over the years (last month also saw my millionth visitor – I don’t know who you are, but you are most welcome). And keep a look out over the next few weeks for some exciting new initiatives on Pandaemonium and for new ways of supporting it…
