Welcome to Will Buckingham.com. I am a novelist, lecturer and philosopher based in Leicester, UK. I write fiction, philosophy and for children.

When not writing, I am Reader in Writing and Creativity in the school of humanities at De Montfort University. I have strong interests in Chinese traditions of thought, and between 2015 and 2016 was a visiting scholar at Sichuan University.

Amongst my recent books are Sixty-Four Chance Pieces, a fiction/non-fiction book based around the sixty-four hexagrams of the Yijing 易經, which was published by March 2015, a novel called Goat Music, a remixing Greek myths about music, and a children’s book that has just been published in Turkish as Lucy ve Laika, and that is coming out from Knopf in New York in 2017 as Lucy and the Rocket Dog. There’s a complete list of my book publications on my writing page.

I have a strong interest in comparative and cross-cultural approaches to philosophy. You can find out more on my research pages.

I also have a blog here on this site, where I tend to post updates about my writing. For longer, more considered blog posts, I can occasionally be found on my WaywardPhilosophy.com blog.
