manuscript -- papers
A draft of The Fridgularity. Yes, he still kills trees for proofing.

Mark may teach at a school for librarians, but he is not a librarian himself. That explains the sketchiness of this bibliography and the fact that he has had to check the spelling of “bibliography” at least twice. So, while this is not an exhaustive list, he has tried to list most of the fiction. (Okay, there’s some stuff that he wrote in high school and during his undergraduate years, but do you really want to subject yourself to that?)

For the remainder of the website, he will not talk about himself in the third person. It’s just creepy.
