Mark Neumayer has been soaking up books on mythology almost as long as he has been reading. And that's despite the best efforts of the elementary school librarian to get him to read Dr. Seuss “with the other kids.”

Mark wrote prolifically back in high school and even edited the school paper. Afterwards, however, he drifted into the world of TV graphics. He still wrote the occasional commercial, bu
