The following is a selection of Mark Wibe’s main literary projects, covering a wide range of fiction and non-fiction genres. These include science fiction, fantasy, horror, “sudden fiction,” screenplays, poetry, personal diaries, academic papers, restaurant and book reviews, and science-related articles, covering a time period from about 1973 to the present.
Mark first began writing at the age of 10, when he kept a two-week travel diary during his family’s vacation in Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming. He briefly maintained a second diary that was timed for the American Bicentennial in 1976, but in 1980 he inaugurated a new diary that he has since maintained for more than 30 years.
In about 1977 he began writing both short and long fiction, and by 1981 he had begun writing historical papers for college classes and for his own independent research. In 1988 he attended the first of a series of creative writing classes that greatly expanded his writing activities, and which in turn led to his writing non-fiction articles for commercial publications and to becoming a copy editor for Entrepreneur Inc., publisher of Entrepreneur magazine.
From 1996-2000 he concentrated primarily on academic writing as he completed his Bachelor’s degree in History at Central Washington University. In 2002-2003 he briefly returned to editing as assistant editor of the erstwhile Cat Fancy magazine, published by the erstwhile BowTie Press, but since then he has concentrated primarily on writing short and long fiction. At present he is writing a fantasy novel that he anticipates completing by the end of 2017.
