BIO: Cooper Moo spent five minutes in Mongolia in 1986 before he had to get back on the train–he never expected to be channeling Mongolian warriors. In 2007, Cooper fought a Chinese long-sword instructor on a Hong Kong rooftop–he never thought the experience would help him write battle scenes. In addition to being a member of the Foreworld writing team, Cooper has written articles for various magazines. His auto-biographical piece “Growing Up Black and White,” published in The Seattle Weekly, was awarded Social Issues Reporting article of the year by the Society of Professional Journalists. He lives in Issaquah, WA with his wife, three children and numerous bladed weapons.

CONTRIBUTIONS TO FOREWORLD

The Mongoliad. Taking place in 13th century, The Mongoliad [in three volumes] is an epic that follows a small band of warriors and mystics as they raise their swords to save Europe from a bloodthirsty Mongol invasion. Inspired by their leader (an elder of an order of warrior monks), they embark on a perilous journey and uncover the history of hidden knowledge and conflict among powerful secret societies that had been shaping world events for millennia.
Katabasis. Exhausted, plagued by uncertainty and self-doubt, and reeling from betrayal by one of their own, the surviving Shield-Brethren struggle across a frozen, shattered wasteland to return home after their desperate battle in Mongolia. Their mission is complete—Christendom has been saved—but new and terrible questions haunt each member of the company: Are they heroes or villains? Or just pawns in a larger game, trapped in a world gone mad in the wake of the unspeakable devastation visited upon it by the Mongol horde?
