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, and associate professor 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, due out from Earnshaw books in March 2015, and a further novel called Goat Music, a remixing Greek myths about music. I’m also working on a couple of children’s books, and a bunch of academic papers relating to philosophy, creativity and various curious Chinese texts.
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. News updates, stray thoughts and longer articles are posted to my blog on this site. I also blog occasionally on my WaywardPhilosophy.com blog.
