My book New Dark Age: Technology, Knowledge and the End of the Future is forthcoming from Verso (UK and US) in July 2018.

I write regularly on my own blog,, and my writing frequently appears in other publications, in print and online.

From March 2012 until August 2015, I wrote a regular column about electronic reading in the Observer newspaper. My contributions can be found here.
