OutlandersYou’ve entered Mark Ellis Ink, the online HQ of novelist Mark Ellis.

I’m the author of dozens of science-fiction and thriller novels (with more in the offing) as well as being a comics creator and graphic novelist.

The fans of my work call me an “Adventurist Extraordinarie” and I try to live up to that!

The goal I strive to achieve in all of my work is to take the reader on epic journeys filled with blazing action, colorful heroes, heroines, villains and grand adventure.

Under my pen name of James Axler, I created the best-selling Outlanders series. Published internationally by Harlequin Enterprises’s Gold Eagle imprint, it is the most successful mass-market paperback series of the past 25 years.

Here is a link to an excerpt  from my popular “Lost World” thriller: Cryptozoica.

You can visit Cryptozoica’s own site to learn more and even order autographed copies:

Another new book is The Spur: Loki’s Rock…the best way to describe it is “Firefly Crossed With The Good, The Bad and the Ugly.”












I also have a Kindle-exclusive novella: Rag Baby, the first in my Florida hard-boiled mystery series featuring Bonaparte “Bone” Mizell. If you’re a fan of Justified, you’ll find a lot to like in Rag Baby.

As I stated above, I’m also a comics creator, with past work on such acclaimed series as Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze, Death Hawk, HP Lovecraft’s Cthulhu and many others. I’m coming back to that medium with the explosive return of The Justice Machine, one the first and most popular super-team title of the independent era.

Best wishes!
