I've tried to find Bauer's other work without much luck. I should check my library again, now that I think of it.

Both of those suggestions sound great. Cyclonopedia in particular I really want to get my hands on. My library has Nihil Unbound, I think I'll get that next time I go. I hadn't heard of before, which surprises me. They have a lot of interesting ideas. Let me know what you think of Forgone Conclusions if you get a chance to read it.
Thanks for the comment. You have a great collection too - I was looking through it and it seemed like one half I know and love and the other half half I added to my to-get list. I haven't read much fiction lately, for some reason, but I saw a copy of The Feverhead in your library. If you haven't read it, you should! It's hilarious and wonderful. Unfortunately, I haven't found anything else by Bauer.

I liked [[Foregone Conclusions: Against Apocalyptic History]]. Bernstein literately indicts the style of history that takes for granted that events were bound to happen. I've always felt uneasy about the way historians ignore the alternative possibilities that didn't come to pass. There's some nice commentary on Musil as well. What new have you found?
