About the Author

Human-shaped, simian-obsessed, robot-fighting, pirate-hearted, storytelling junkie, Mark A. Rayner is an award-winning author of satirical and speculative fiction.

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. By night he writes short stories, novels, squibs and other drivel. (Some pure, and some quite tainted with meaning.)
