David Lavery (Brunel University, London) and Michele Byers (St. Mary's
University, Canada), the editors of this in-development book, seek

We welcome any type of writing on the subject from memoirs and personal
essays to critical interpretations and more theoretical pieces. Contributors
may, of course, come from any discipline or field and need not be academics.
The idea for this book came out of a piece one of us wrote for an upcoming
issue of the online journal Flow. A pre-publication draft of the piece can
be read here:
