History of works[edit] Sutin's debut book was the first full-length biographical study of a famed science-fiction writer, Philip K. Dick--Divine Invasions: A Life of Philip K. Dick;[1] he subsequently edited two volumes of Dick's works, In Pursuit of Valis: Selections from the Exegesis and The Shifting Realities of Philip K. Dick: Selected Literary and Philosophical Writings. He then served as editor, interviewer and author for the memoir of his parents' lives in Jewish partisan units in Poland during World War Two--Jack and Rochelle: A Holocaust Story of Love and Resistance.[2] Sutin's second biography was on a controversial twentieth-century Western esotericist, Aleister Crowley--Do What Thou Wilt: A Life of Aleister Crowley.[3] That same year, he published a lyric memoir with a structure of interlocking short pieces each faced by a vintage postcard-image from the author's personal collection--A Postcard Memoir.[2] His next work was All Is Change: The Two-Thousand Year Journey of Buddhism to the West.[4] Most recently, Sutin published a novel, When To Go Into the Water.[5] Erasure art[edit] Sutin creates erasure books with collaged and altered texts; excerpts from these have been published online in the literary journals WaterStone and Sleet[6] and are also on view at his website.[7] Professional[edit] Sutin was a full professor in the M.F.A. and M.L.S. programs at the Hamline University
