*UPDATE 12 NOVEMBER 2014* I am currently running a crowdfunding campaign to purchase 1 of 2 extant copies of a book with possible connections to Oscar Wilde. My goal is to get it out of private collections (where it has been for as long as I am aware) and into the hands of an institution that will not only preserve it but also make it available to the public. Please take a minute to find out more here and, if you like, share it round. And, if you really like, you might want to contribute. Thanks a whole bunch. -Justin
This is where you’ll find my CV. Please skip over the publications section, as it is much wanting at the moment. I hope to remedy this very soon as I am working on a few different projects with the aim of publishing.
