Human-shaped, simian-obsessed, robot-fighting, pirate-hearted, massively-bestselling wannabe, Mark A. Rayner is a writer of satirical and speculative fiction.
He is the author of three novels, hundreds of short stories & flash fictions, and several plays.
Mark’s new book is a satire of the technological singularity called The Fridgularity. It examines what happens when a web designer’s web-enabled fridge becomes the conduit for an entity called Zathir, which has evolved on the Internet and promptly locked all humans out of its home.
Mark’s previous book is a collection of short fiction called Pirate Therapy and Other Cures. Legendary indie author, Tom Bradley, says of it: “Never has pop culture been so hilariously satirized, nor history so perversely revised.”
By day, Mark teaches his bemused students at the Faculty of Information and Media Studies (at The University of Western Ontario), how to construct digital images, web sites, and viable information architectures that will not become self-aware and destroy all humans.
