Mark A. Rayner
Simian-obsessed, massively-bestselling, time-travelling-pirate wannabe, Mark A. Rayner is a writer of satirical and speculative fiction. He is the author of three novels, a collection of short humorous fiction, dozens of short stories, and several plays. His newest novel is The Fridgularity, a satire of the technological singularity. His previous book, Pirate Therapy and Other Cures, collects some of his funniest (and strangest) short fictions. He still has a day job, which is to teach his bemused students at the Faculty of Information and Media Studies (UWO), how to construct digital images, web sites, and viable information architectures that do not become self-aware and kill all humans.
He is available for interviews, readings, chit chat and literary grooming.
