About the author:
Human-shaped, simian-obsessed, robot-fighting, pirate-hearted, massively-bestselling wannabe, Mark A. Rayner is a writer of satirical and speculative fiction. His previous works include two novels (The Amadeus Net & Marvellous Hairy) and a collection of short humorous fiction, Pirate Therapy and Other Cures.

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 is not Batman. His cats, however, are.

You can track Mark online at his website, where the offer of cake is purely pro forma:

The Fridgularity

Authored by Mark A Rayner

Chill out. It's only the technological singularity.

Blake Given’s web-enabled fridge has pulled the plug on the Internet, turning its owner’s life – and the whole world – upside down.

Blake has modest ambitions for his life. He wants to have his job reclassified, so he can join the Creative Department of the advertising firm where he works. And he wants to go out with Daphne, one of the account execs at the same company. His fridge has other plans. All Blake knows is he’s at the center of the Internet’s disappearance, worldwide economic and religious chaos, and the possibility of a nuclear apocalypse — none of which is helping him with his career plans or love life.

The Fridgularity is the story of a reluctant prophet, Internet addicts in withdrawal and a kitchen appliance with delusions of grandeur.
