Disclaimer: I have not updated this page since this blog’s incipience.
The following are books on writing, some of which I have already read and found extremely useful, some of which I am currently in the process of reading, and some of which I intend to read. I will annotate them as I go along to provide a little information about each one, but in the meantime I have simply listed them in alphabetical order.
