Mark T. Hooker is a visiting scholar at Indiana University's Russian and East European Institute (REEI). Retired, he conducts research for publication.

The Fifth Beyond Bree Award (2012) was bestowed upon Hooker at The Return of the Ring.[1]

He is a member of the Board of Academic Advisors for Walking Tree Publishers.[2]

Hooker is credited with coining the term Tolkiennymy (to describe the study of Tolkien's use of names and etymologies from existing languages) and borrowing the Russian word Samizdat (to describe self-published "pirate" translations).
