About the author:
Simian-obsessed, massively-bestselling-robot-fighting-pirate wannabe, Mark A. Rayner is a writer of satirical and speculative fiction. He is the author of two novels, dozens of short stories, several plays, innumerable squibs and other drivel. (Some pure, and some quite tainted with meaning.) 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.

He is not a pirate, but he has played one on the stage.

Pirate Therapy and Other Cures

Authored by Mark A. Rayner

Ever wondered what might happen if your therapist was replaced by a pirate? Or how disquieting it would be to receive postcards from your future self? If William Shatner was elected President of the United States, what would his inaugural address sound like? Mark A. Rayner tackles these, and stranger, questions in his collection of short stories, essays and flash fiction that thrum with the absurd and hum with alienation, all to a humorous beat. Jesus contends with dinosaurs. Marcel Duchamp describes what happens to a Dadaist who has a monkey's tail grafted to his butt. Whether he is explaining how Anne of Green Gables destroyed the world, or outlining Thor's new PR strategy, Rayner entertains with wit, humor and an imagination that is one step short of certifiable.
