His publications include a fifteen volume set of travelogues, for which he both wrote the text and took the photographs.

S.D. Mulligan is a fallen midwestern businessman who started writing short stories and poetry in 2001 because, he says, of some experiences he had in Canada on several business trips. Mulligan is 61 but still remembers the thrill of reading the Evergreen Review and books published by Grove Press in the 1960s. He says he's honored to be published here. Yellow Dog Democrat is the second in a series of three short stories beginning with Elephant Watch, previously published in Evergreen Review #107. The trilogy will conclude with the final story after the November 2004 presidential election.
