Welcome to what is the most accurate and information packed site devoted to both series Deathlands and Outlanders.
Jack Adrian began the Deathlands series back in 1986. A little over half way through the first novel Pilgrimage to hell Mr. Adrian was unable to continue. It was taken over by Laurence James, AKA James Axler. He took the series and not only brought life to the main characters, but created a rich environment set in the deadly aftermath of a global nuclear war.
A couple of years back a brand new series began. This one takes place over ninety years in the future of Deathlands. It's called Outlanders, just in case you are one of the few Deathlands fans who may never have heard of it. Outlanders takes the mythology created for Deathlands and expands upon it greatly. The creation of the series was credited to Mark Ellis in book 3, Savage Sun. A large portion of this page is dedicated to this spin off series.
The series now spans over fifty novels, and there is no end in site. Laurence James was responsible for writing all the novels up to and including Eclipse at Noon. The novels, starting from 'Stone Face' with the exception of 'Crucible of Time' have been written by other writers.
This site will contain a wealth of information on both series, including everything from complete character essays, to book summaries, and so forth.
The fan club is gone. I wasn't about to start paying Microsoft for the email list. Also, I've changed jobs, lost my latest job, been dealing with a ton of crap so on and so forth. I hope that sometime in the near future that I'll be able to update more often, but until that time, another gentleman is going to start up his own page. Once he has it up, I'll announce it on this site.
I've removed all the dead pages, and added a new story called Lost Empire Part Six. I will have a new cover in the next couple of weeks.
Added a link to Brad Marsh's personal site for his writing. It can be found here as well.
