A Langford Sampler

All this stuff is Copyright © David Langford, and may not be reproduced or mirrored on other web sites without explicit permission. (You are welcome to link directly to any of these pages without asking, though.) I've kept back a number of longer items included in The Silence of the Langford (1996), Up Through an Empty House of Stars: Reviews and Essays 1980-2002 (2003), Starcombing: columns, essays, reviews and more (2009), All Good Things: The Last SFX Visions (2017) and Beachcombing and Other Oddments (2020), as an incentive to buy the books. Go on, you know you want to.

If you enjoy reading these pieces, feel free to fling a purse of gold at the author.
