Human-shaped, monkey-loving, robot-fighting, pirate-hearted, massively-bestselling wannabe, Mark is actually Canadian. By day he is a university prof and by night, a writer of humorous, satirical and fabulist novels, squibs and other drivel. (Some pure, and some quite tainted with meaning.) The Fridgularity is his newest novel. Pirate Therapy and Other Cures is a collection of short fiction. Marvellous Hairy is his second novel. His first book, The Amadeus Net, is heavier on the robots. You can read more of his fiction (for free) at his website where you can also dig into his irregular and explosive blog, The Skwib (markarayner.com).

Some of the short pieces have appeared in online magazines, and some in my regular blog, The Skwib. Many...
