Markku Eskelinen (Ph.D.) is an independent scholar and experimental writer of ergodic prose and critical essays. Excerpts from his first novel were published in The Review of Contemporary Fiction (Summer 1996) according to which he is “easily the most iconoclastic figure on the Finnish literary scene.” Eskelinen is also one of the founding editors of both Game Studies, the international journal of computer game research, and Cybertext Yearbook.
