Circa the Year of Dome 2000, Anvil the Artificer, a then otherwise unnamed, highborn Lazaremist later called Tvasitar Smithmonger, dedicated the first three devic talismans, or power foci, that he forged out of molten Brainrock to the Trigregos Sisters.

The long lost, possibly even dead, simultaneous mothers of devakind hated their offspring for abandoning them on the far-off planetary Utopia of New Weir. Not surprisingly, their fearsome talismans could be used to kill Master Devas (devils).

For most of twenty-five hundred years, they belonged to the recurring deviant, Chrysaor Attis, time after time proven a devaslayer. On Thrygragon, Mithramas Day 4376 YD, he turned them over to his Great God of a half-father, Thrygragos Varuna Mithras, to use against his two brothers, Unmoving Byron and Little Star Lazareme, in hopes of usurping their adherents and claiming them as his own.

Hundreds of years later, these selfsame thrice-cursed Godly Glories helped turn the devil-worshippers of Sedon's Head against their seemingly immortal, if not necessarily undying gods. Now, five hundred years after the 1000 Days of Disbelief, they've been relocated.

The highest born, surviving devic goddesses want them for themselves; want to thereby become incarnations of the Trigregos Sisters on the Hidden Continent. An Outer Earthling, one who has literally fallen out of the sky after the launching of the Cosmic Express, gets to them first ...

In the Year of the Dome 4825, Morgan Abyss, the Melusine Master of the Utopian Weirdom of Cabalarkon, seizes control of Primeval Lilith, the ageless, seemingly unkillable Demon Queen of the Night. The eldritch earthborn is the real half-mother of the invariably mortal Sed-sons but, once she has hold of her, aka Lethal Lily, Master Morgan proceeds to trap the Moloch Sedon Himself.

In the midst of the bitter, century-long expansion of the Lathakran Empire, the Hidden Headworld's three tribes of devil-gods are forced to unite in an effort to release their All-Father. Unfortunately for them, they're initially unaware Master Morg, the Death's Head Hellion herself, has also got hold of the Trigregos Talismans, devic power foci that can actually kill devils, and Sedon's thought-father Cabalarkon, the Undying Utopian she'll happily slay if they dare attack her Weirdom.

Utopians from Weir have never given up seeking to wipe devils off not just the face of the Inner Earth, but off the planet itself. Their techno and biomages, under the direction of the Weirdom of Cabalarkon's extremely long-lived High Illuminary, Quoits Tethys, have determined there is only one sure way to do that -- namely, to infect the devils' Inner Earth worshippers with fatal plagues brought in from the Outer Earth.

Come All-Death Day there are more Dead Things Walking than Living Beings Talking. Believe it or not, that's the good news.

Kadmon Heliopolis had one life. It ended in October 1968. The Male Entity has had many lives. In his fifth, he and his female counterpart, often known as Miracle Memory, engendered more so than created the Moloch Sedon. They believe him to be the Devil Incarnate. They've been attempting to kill him ever since. Too bad it's invariably he, Heliosophos (Helios called Sophos the Wise), who gets killed instead.

On the then still Whole Earth circa the Year 4000 BCE, one of their descendants, Xuthros Hor, the tenth patriarch of Golden Age Humanity, puts into action a thought-foolproof, albeit mass murderous, plan to succeed where the Dual Entities have always failed. He unleashes the Genesea. The Devil takes a bath.

Fifty-nine hundred and eighty years later, New Century Enterprises launches the Cosmic Express from Centauri Island. It never reaches Outer Space; not all of it anyhow. As a stunning consequence of its apparent destruction, ten extraordinary supranormals are reunited, bodies, souls and minds, after a quarter century in what they've come to consider Limbo. They name themselves the Damnation Brigade. And so it appears they are -- if perhaps not so much damned as doomed.

At least one person survives the launching of the Cosmic Express. He literally falls out of the sky -- on the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head. An old lady saves him. Except this old lady lives in a golden pagoda, rides vultures and has a third eye. She also doesn't stay old long. He becomes her willing soldier, acquires the three Sacred Objects and goes on a rampage, against his own people, those that live.

Meanwhile, Centauri Island, the launch site of the Cosmic Express, comes under attack from Hell's Horsemen. Only it's not horses they ride. It's Atomic Firedrakes!

Feeling Theocidal

Two collages detailing the plot of Feeling Theocidal; graphics by Jim McPherson, 2008Cluttered and Uncluttered Versions of the Images in Frontcover Frame, prepared by Jim McPherson from his own photos, 2006/7Set primarily on Mithramas Day 4376 YD (with a short section set in contemporaneous Rome of 376 A.D.), "Feeling Theocidal" is the first book in ‘The Thrice Cursed Godly Glories’ epic trilogy.

The 60 Second Synopsis

The gods and goddesses, the demons and monsters, of ancient mythologies have been trivialized, their worship proscribed and the entities themselves confined to another realm. Their ongoing battles are chronicled throughout Jim McPherson's PHANTACEA Mythos. In addition to the events of Mithramas Day 4376 YD, Feel Theo highlights a number of these tales.

Since 4000 B.C., as most Outer Earthlings count time (Year of the Dome Zero, as Inner Earthlings do), the gods and goddess, the demons and monsters of mythology have spent the majority of their often immortal existence on the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head. At the novel’s outset, Thrygragos Varuna Mithras (the Great God of Light, Truth, Justice and so much more, including civilization) is one of the very few gods still worshipped on both sides of the Cathonic Dome (or Sedon Sphere).

Unfortunately for his continued Great Godhood, he's been losing worshippers on the Outer Earth to monotheism since the Emperor Constantine converted from Mithraism to the so-called Christian or Roman Catholic Church of the era. Consequently, he initiates an Inner Earth power play designed to usurp the worshippers of his two brother Great Gods and their third generational offspring.

He reckons nothing can stop him, not even his ever-reincarnating deviant son Taurus Chrysaor Attis, the Universal Soldier. What he can't plan ahead to stop, because he can't remember he even exists, is the pernicious influence of Smiler (who claims to be his triplet brother in Sedon), and the seemingly inanimate objects known as the Trigregos Talismans.

(These are the trilogy’s titular thrice-cursed Godly Glories. They’re named after the three long lost, yet nonetheless deeply despised, second generational mothers of devakind. As described in the graphic novel, "Forever & 40 Days — The Genesis of Phantacea", devazurs consider them traitors to their own often-unkind kind. As for the other three Godly Glories, the Thrygragos Talismans, named after the Great Gods themselves, as far as Mithras is concerned they aren't cursed at all. That’s probably because he has them.)

A mosaic novel, its multifarious cast of characters includes gods or devils, a few of their mortal offspring (called deviants) such as Jordan Q Tethys and Taurus Chrysaor Attis, and a number of ordinary men and women. Hardly all of these last are human. (Sooth said, there's a particularly nasty Saurian, namely Saudi the Steg Sari, running amuck throughout much of the novel.)

The Great God, Thrygragos Varuna Mithras, has named the day. Let it be called Thrygragon, as in gone, gone his Thrygragos Brothers.

He’s reacquired his Godly Glory from his half-son, Taurus Chrysaor Attis. He’s claimed the Godly Glories of his two brothers and knows how to obliterate All, Incain’s fearsome Gynosphinx. Nothing can go wrong.

Call it what you will, Jordan Tethys is having a lousy day. His wives have discovered he’s both a deviant and a perfidious polygamist. They not only keep killing him, they’re determined to sink his soul forevermore.

No one’s happier about Thrygragon than the never remembered, ever-smiling Fiend. At least he has enough sense to stay away from his mothers’ talismans, the thrice-cursed Godly Glories.

Smiler’s myrionymous. He has many names. One of them might be Demogorgon, the Devil-Eater!

Other fallen angel devils who appear on the front cover are Mater Matare (the eventual Apocalyptic of Death, who's still mostly known as the Medusa), Djinn Domitian (Mithras's leontocephalic heliodromus, herald, trumpeter or main messenger), Nergal Vetala (who is still just a Mithradite Moon Goddess often addressed as Fecundity) and Klzarod Rex (the Devalord of the Flood Lands, whom Saudi the Steg Sari nominally worships in Feel Theo);
