Mark A. Altman is a comic book author, having written a number of issues for Malibu Comics, including the entire Maquis and Hearts and Minds series. He also contributed a story for DC Comics.

In addition to his works authoring Star Trek comics, he is also a movie producer and was one of the writers and producers of Free Enterprise, which featured William Shatner.

Altman is also the author of four unauthorized books about the Star Trek saga, all of them with Edward Gross. According to the mini-biography on the back cover of Captains' Logs: The Unauthorized Complete Trek Voyages:

"Mark A. Altman is the former Los Angeles bureau chief for Cinefantastique magazine and is currently editor in chief of Sci-Fi Universe. He is also a regular writer for comic books, a member of the Television Critics Association, and has written for such publications as the Boston Globe, Film Threat, and the Manchester Guardian. Altman lives in Beverly Hills, California."
While in the employ of Cinefantastique, he as a reporter has written scores of Star Trek articles for their theme issue, articles which were expanded into the book titles listed below. In 2003 he, after the magazine folded upon the death of its founder and chief editor Frederic S. Clarke, acquired publishing rights with Mark Gottwald and relaunched it under the new title CFQ in 2003. Returning to its original formula of being a critical review magazine, they were unable to regain the popularity of the magazine in its heydays and publication ceased in 2006 after 25 issues.
