About the Author

Mark T. Hooker is a specialist in Comparative Translation at Indiana University. Retired, he conducts research for publication. His articles on Tolkien have been published in English, in Dutch, in Polish in Ancalim, in Brazilian-Portuguese, and in Russian. He has presented papers at a number of MythCons and at the fourth and fifth Lustrums of the Dutch Tolkien Society. He is the author of Tolkien Through Russian Eyes (Walking Tree, 2003), A Tolkienian Mathomium (Llyfrawr, 2006), The Hobbitonian Anthology (Llyfrawr, 2009), and Implied, but not Stated: Condensation in Colloquial Russian.

One of his essays is included in the J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings” volume of Dr. Harold Bloom’s Modern Critical Interpretations series, billed as “the most comprehensive collection of literary reference in the world.” Dr. Bloom is currently the Sterling Professor of the Humanities and English at Yale University.

The review of A Tolkienian Mathomium in Tolkien Studies says, because Hooker’s “breadth of expertise is somewhat unusual for Tolkienian linguists, most of whom come from the Old English/Old Norse quadrant, Hooker has a wide variety of things to say that have not been heard before.”

He contributed the article "Reading John Buchan in Search of Tolkien" in Tolkien and the Study of his Sources, edited Jason Fisher (McFarland, 2011), which was a finalist for the 2012 Mythopoeic Scholarship Award in Inklings Studies.

Hooker is a member of the Walking Tree Publishers Board of Advisors.

Hooker is the laureate of the Fifth Beyond Bree Award (2012), which was presented at The Return of the Ring in Loughborough, England. Unlike previous Beyond Bree Award votes, this time there was a single clear winner.
