Below is my the Google Book's view of my chapter ("Randomness, Chance, & Art") in The Handbook of Research on Computational Art & Creative Informatics
. The chapter can also be viewed on Google's Book site
I'm pretty proud of the essay and would love more people to have a chance to read it. The Google view of the chapter is missing a few pages. Please email me
if you'd like a summary of the missing pages.

Incidentally, let me say this about IGI Global for any academic considering contributing a chapter to one of their books. It's pretty much a one way street. No complementary copies, no pay (of course), and very little consideration.
When the book was published I received an email from them saying to let them know if I'd like a printable pdf of my chapter (they did provide a non-printable, non-editable, non-savable pdf of the book). Why they don't just assume every author would like that and simply go ahead and send one, I don't know.
Anyway, I've emailed them quite a few times ever since saying, "Why yes, I'm coming up for tenure and it would be wonderful to be able to print out a copy of the chapter to include in my tenure review packet." I've never received a response.
Frankly, if I had it to do over I would have simply skipped being in a book and would have made my chapter freely available online.
