About the Book

Willingly Published: More Papers to 2005 is the fourth published volume of Victor Chen's papers, after The Age of Illusion: Some Writings and a Memoir, Unintended Results: New Chapters in an Ongoing Story, and Lines in the Dirt: Some Works of 1978–2004. This volume includes an index of titles of pieces from all four volumes. The volume also includes essays and articles, poems, stories, letters, and court documents, which, like the papers in the other volumes, throw light on history, science, and language.

A memory of the 1969 "moon landing," a poem called "A Brief Ode on an 'Historian' with No Published Books," and an amended complaint against Bellevue Hospital in New York are among the papers in this fourth volume.
