Member Since
January 2008


Mark Teppo has written nearly a dozen novels, both by himself and in collaboration with others. His Codex of Souls urban fantasy series preceded the occult noir revival, and his eco-thriller, Earth Thirst, revitalized the vampire mythology, bringing the old bloodsuckers into the 21st century. Recently, he’s been the Chief Creative Officer for Subutai Corporation where he was the showrunner and lead writer for the Foreworld Saga, a transmedia project that spans novels, video games, serialization, and comic books. He is the founder and publisher of Resurrection House, a publishing company dedicated to restoring the love affair with the printed book.
