Markan Monographs and Journal Articles

A bit ago I had asked my fellow bloggers for recommendations on Mark commentaries. I got a ton of great advice on my blog and Facebook. So, here I am again asking for more recommendations. First, let me be a bit more specific. I am currently engaged in a project where I am looking at literary and narratival aspects of Mark's Gospel. What are some of the works with which I should be engaging? Timothy C. Gray's volume on the temple in Mark's Gospel looks intriguing to me. Have any of you read this? If so, what do you think of it? Are there any other monographs taking this approach to Mark that you would recommend reading?

Also, I want to read up on articles. Are there any journal articles that are must reads?

I had to make this sound like a shameless plug....but have you seen the book Kelly Iverson and I edited with SBL last year? It's called, Mark as Story: Retrospect and Prospect. It reflects upon developments in NT narrative criticism (with specific reference to Mark) since the publication of Mark as Story in 1982. Here's the link:
