Mark Adlard (1932- ) was born Peter Marcus Adlard in Seaton Carew, Hartlepool, County Durham, England.
His best-known works are the social science fiction novels Interface, Volteface, and MultiFace 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 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.
