Contributor Biographies Stuart C. Aitken professes geography at San Diego State University, when he is not chairing the department.

His best manuscript remains unpublished and hidden under a pile of old newspapers used by his dog as a bed. Stuart thinks that this manuscript will change the discipline of geography in fundamental ways, but his dog gives a low, menacing growl every time he tries to retrieve it.

Abstract

Stuart C. Aitken professes geography at San Diego State University, when he is not chairing the department. On good days he gets to do both simultaneously, often with confusing results. His colleagues think that Stuart is mostly harmless and are quite happy to let him continue with his fantasies of grandeur. On better days he gets to write about mythical Celtic creatures and movies about obscure heroes in far-away places, while still deluding himself with scholarly pretensions. Every now and then, a particularly adventuresome publishing house picks up one of his book manuscripts and passes it off as something people might want to read (a really flashy cover often does the trick). His best manuscript remains unpublished and hidden under a pile of old newspapers used by his dog as a bed. Stuart thinks that this manuscript will change the discipline of geography in fundamental ways, but his dog gives a low, menacing growl every time he tries to retrieve it. Maurizio Antoninetti, Sarah Champion, Zia Salim (San Diego State University); Brenda Kayzar (University of Minnesota); Daniel Arreola (Arizona State University); and Norman Carter (California State University, Long Beach) are colleagues, former students, admirers, and just plain friends
