My writing focuses on counter-culture, radical politics, and the paranormal. My book I Want to Believe: Posadism, UFOs and Apocalypse Communism was published by Pluto Press in 2020. Other essays and journalistic pieces have appeared in The New York Times, Baffler, Vice, The New Inquiry, HTML Giant, Truthout, Protean, and the Outline. I also produce and cohost the Antifada podcast.

    Mr Gitlitz: I just read your suggestive NYT op-ed on science fiction and socialism. You may be interested in knowing that Yale U.P. Is looking for someone to write a “cultural history” of science fiction. They approached me some time ago — I wrote a pretty good book on sf in the 1980s — but after unsuccessfully trying to think through what such a book might be I declined. Your op-ed suggests that you might be able to do better. If you are interested let me know and I’ll pass along the Yale contact. Would this make you a literary proletarian? I don’t think so. In any case, thanks for the op-ed. Best, Mark Rose (mrose@english.ucsb.edu). 7/24/17
