Full Table of Contents (Provisional)

On my Kickstarter project page, and in the 25-page PDF sampler of the book, I have a “teaser” Table of Contents, with select chapters from the book. Below is the full TOC, as of today. It may change somewhat, as this may be too much for a projected 250-page book. It looks like a lot, but some of the pieces are only 2 pages long. Also indicated is the publication in which the piece originally appeared or whether it’s unpublished (previously written, but never appeared in print) or new (written expressly for Borg Like Me).
