I am seeking original, previously unpublished essays for a collection tentatively titled The Science Fiction Western: Representation of Female Characters in the Late Twentieth and Twenty-first Century Media. An academic publisher has expressed interest.

Unfortunately, one of my contributors has pulled out of the project. As a result, I am seeking an additional essay. While I am looking for an essay, I am happy to accept more if they contain examinations of previously unaddressed areas of study.

“The philosophy of lying can be full of dark corners” (Saint Augustine, On Lying, 395 A.D.). Over time, in all spheres of the human experience, the attempts to define the concept of ‘lying’ have been numerous and have resulted in a dichotomous relationship with either ‘truth’ or ‘reality’. Both elusive and tempting, lying is a mode of communicate and influence others’ beliefs and behaviours which reveals itself in a wide range of forms: imagination, creation, invention, artifice, (dis)simulation, omission, pretence, change, disfiguration, deception, forgery, manipulation, etc.
