Mark Adlard was born Peter Marcus Adlard is an English novelist. He was born in Seaton Carew, Hartlepool, County Durham, England on 19 June 1932.[1]

His best-known works are the social science fiction novels Interface, Volteface, and MultiFace.[1] published in the early 1970s. The novels concern T-city, a 22nd-century domed megacity covering the entirety of the English North Eastern industrial area between the River Tyne and the River Tees.

A later novel, The Greenlander (1978) concerns the whaling industry in Northeast England during the early days of steam-powered shipping. This was intended to be the first of a series but, to date, no further volumes have appeared.
