Interview with Michael Cooper

Michael Cooper

For the fans of Aeon-14 or any other sci-fans, tune into this two part episode with author Michael Cooper as he takes us to the future . . .

About Michael Cooper:

I look at the night skies, at the stars and planets, and I dream of what will someday be humanity’s home. I imagine a future where we have stretched out into the stars, discovering new worlds, and new beauty. These dreams have come to life in the series of books coming to life in the world of Aeon 14. 

When I began writing about a distant future–in the 42nd century–a woman named Tanis showed up. Her strength and drive took over my stories and I couldn’t help but write about her. Tanis lives in a future where there is no faster than light travel and no teleporters. However, humans have created structures as large as moons, and have shifted planets. They share their minds with AI and talk to one another almost telepathically.

Yet they are still human, they still laugh, and tell tall tales, and love one another.
