Timothy Morton teaches English at the University of California, Davis, USA. His publications include The Poetics of Spice (2000), and Shelley and the Revolution in Taste (1994), and he is editor of Radical Food (2000).Review:
The editors have cleverly used blocks of grey text throughout the book to separate the editorial voice from documents by other authors, and tools such as the Table of Contents, the Chronology, and the Directory of Figures make negotiating the information in the text much easier.
–Sharon Emerichs, University of Missouri-Columbia, Science Fiction Studies, 2005
