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 senior lecturer in creative writing in the school of humanities at De Montfort University.
My most recent books include the children’s book, The Snorgh and the Sailor, a novel, The Descent of the Lyre, and a philosophy book on happiness, called Introducing Happiness. Coming up later this year is a monograph on the philosopher Emmanuel Levinas, called Levinas, Storytelling and Anti-Storytelling. I’m also currently working on A Book of Changes, a novel based around the sixty-four hexagrams of the Yijing 易經, and another couple of books for children.
On this website you can find out more about my work, hear and read extracts from my books, and generally see what it is that I get up to. I also have an occasional philosophy blog over at TheMyriadThings.com, which I started in May 2012. Do pay it a visit. My former blog at thinkbuddha.org, listed by the Sunday Times as one of the top 100 blogs of 2009, is still online as a repository of around three hundred articles.
