Mark Teppo suffers from a mild case of bibliomania, which serves him well in his on-going pursuit of a writing career. Fascinated with the mystical and the extra-ordinary, he channels this enthusiasm into fictional explorations of magic realism, urban fantasy, and surreal experimentation. Recently, he's been building franchises and writing historical fiction.
A modicum of trivia . . .
SUBUTAI CORPORATION: Wherein we are creating Foreworld, a secret history franchise that spans much of known civilization. The first project is a trilogy called The Mongoliad. Set in the Europe and Asia in 1241, it lays bare what really happened during the Mongol Invasion. The story is being published by 47North in three volumes.
We're also making a video game called CLANG. We ran a successful Kickstarter campaign and are now busy realizing the project.
THE CODEX OF SOULS: Published by Night Shade Books, this multi-volume series explores the history of the occult and mysticism, while subverting the traditional urban fantasy reliance on fantastic creatures. This is post-industrial fantasy steeped in noir.
THE POTEMKIN MOSAIC: A non-linear project that explores the landscape of dream, the labyrinth of linguistics, and the deconstruction of mythology.
