As noted in its Auctorial Preamble, Phantacea Phase Two begins with “Decimation Damnation“, the first mini-novel in the open-ended saga of “Wilderwitch’s Babies“.

Rather, it would have if the Damnation Brigade storyline had continued in comic book form. It didn’t, and probably won’t, but for Jim McPherson, the creator/writer of the Phantacea Mythos, prose has long been the way to go.

Additional mini-novels in this series will appear over the course of the next couple of years

In terms of pure prose, there are (as one might expect) three books in ‘The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories’ fantasy trilogy.

All three books in the equally epic ‘Launch 1980′ story cycle have now been published. (“Helios on the Moon“, the third and final, full length novel in the story cycle, came out in the Autumn of 2014.)

The ‘Launch 1980’ story cycle is Jim McPherson’s personal project to novelize the entire Phantacea comic book series.

Goddess Gambit“, Book Three of ‘The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories’ trilogy, is also largely based on events depicted in the comic book series.

However, Jim McPherson’s now admits that he was woefully misinformed during the course of writing the comic books. For some reason, the  real story, the one that makes up a good percentage of the novel, ended a whole lot more terminally for one character in particular.

  1. Apologies for delay. Am currentl hopeful of an October 2014 release for “Helios on the Moon”. Don’t blame blog-meister pHantaJim, web-meister Oz, or publisher, James H McPherson. Rather, blame all of the above, albeit as Jim McPherson, the writer/creator of the Phantacea Mythos. Hel-Moon just isn’t quite ready yet.

  2. Helios on the Moon is still a work in progress. It’s unlikely it’ll be available in time for Van Expo 2014 but there’s still a chance it be out in time for Van Caf at the end of May. There’s a mock-up of both covers on the Baroque Convolutions page.
