Mark is a pioneer of algorithmic, nonlinear, and computer-mediated narrative, whose work is highly regarded by the five or six people in the world who care about algorithmic, nonlinear, and computer-mediated narrative. His formal experiments, poetry and vignettes have appeared in Big Bridge, Epiphany, Word Riot, the SoMa Literary Review, Inkburns, Comrades and elsewhere. His work is cited by *The Cambridge Companion to Postmodernism* as its culminating example of literary Postmodernism, meaning that, according to Cambridge University, the history of western literature begins with Homer and ends with Mark. Mark very much enjoys saying that out loud.
