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!

Introductory Remarks

www.phantacea.com may be the only website dedicated entirely to print publications featuring Jim McPherson's PHANTACEA Mythos. However, at least at present, it's hardly Jim McPherson's only website.LIst of Phantacea Publications available for ordering by credit card, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2011Novels to Comics PDF over the Kitty Clysm TOC, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2014

The first, pH-Webworld, aka both PHANTACEA on the Web and the Phantacea Mythos Online, began in 1996 and continues to this day, albeit as www.phantacea.info. The second, Jim McPherson's Travels, didn't get its own URL until 2007. Nonetheless, until that day came, it was an integral part of pH-Webworld. Indeed, many of the graphics found on this page are collages largely composed of shots taken during the course of said-Travels.

By Autumn 2011, Phantacea Publications had issued two multi-character, full-length novels and three mini-novels featuring Jim McPherson's Phantacea Mythos. An e-version of "Feeling Theocidal" is also available, albeit only in amazon.com's Kindle platform. All are available for ordering online by credit card.

In the long-standing Phantacea tradition of Anheroic Fantasy (of which more here), all are also mosaic novels in the sense that they feature a good-sized, ensemble cast of characters, many of whom appear in .

The mini-novels are entitled "The Death's Head Hellion", "Contagion Collectors" and "Janna Fangfingers". They have been carefully extracted from "The 1000 Days of Disbelief", Book Two of 'The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories' trilogy. Like their full-length predecessors, "Feeling Theocidal" and "The War of the Apocalyptics", the three, deliberately low-priced mini-novels are set in large measure on the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head.

Their casts include, at the top of the food chain, Thrygragos Everyman and his firstborn Unities (the incomparable Harmony, Lightning Lord Order and Uncle Abe Chaos) in their freewheeling prime. The mini-novels also contain book-specific character companions that are at least partially illustrated, howsoever anheroically, starting here.

A growing selection of lynx to out-takes from all three parts of 1000-Daze can be found here. Excerpts from "Goddess Gambit", the conclusion to 'The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories' trilogy – and the next instalment of Launch 1980 story cycle that began with War-Pox – link from here.

Upcoming Graphic Novel

Covers being prepared for future publications

From black and white to full colour, the Damnation Brigade Graphic Novel is due out in late 2012.

Original artwork by Ian Bateson circa 1986. Colour by Ian Bateson, 2012, with additional work by Chris Chuckry, 2012.

"Feeling Theocidal -- Thrygragon, Year of the Dome 4376" (Book One of 'The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories' trilogy), "The War of the Apocalyptics" (the first full-length entry in the Launch 1980 story cycle), the three mini-novels making up "The 1000 Days of Disbelief" (Book Two of 'The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories'), "Goddess Gambit" (Book Three of the trilogy and in some respects the second – unless it's the third – entry in the Launch 1980 story sequence) and "Nuclear Dragons" (the second, full-length entry in the Launch 1980 story sequence) should be available at neighbourhood bookstores and public libraries all over the world.

"Janna Fangfingers", the third and final mini-novel comprising 1000-Daze, rather cleverly doubles as a prequel to both Gambit and the Launch 1980 story cycle. In its turn, Endgame-Gambit picks up from where War-Pox leaves off. Part Three of "Nuclear Dragons" connects to both War-Pox and Gambit. Parts One, Two and Four of Nuke also nicely sets up "Helios on the Moon", the last scheduled sequence in the Launch 1980 story cycle.

E-versions of Feel Theo, Hellion, Contagion,Fangers, War-Pox and Gambit are available on the Kindle format exclusively from amazon.com, amazon.co.uk and some of amazon's other European and Asian affiliates.

Kindle e-books can be downloaded for I-Pads and I-Phones as well as a number of other devices. Many have text-to-voice capacity for the visually challenged.

Phantacea Publications e-books are also available in a variety of other formats. Please check your favourite online bookstore to download Phantacea Publications e-books to the device of your choice.

If you don't see the novels or mini-novels displayed at your local book stops, kindly direct purchasing agents and/or booksellers to www.phantacea.com in order to help them rectify such a sad situation.

Another interesting option for the curious is Chegg, which has a rent-a-book program. Thus far its search engine shows no results for phantacea (any style or permutation thereof) but it does recognize Jim McPherson (a variety of them) and the titles of the novels.

As for the Whole Earth (other than the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head, at least as far as I can say), this page contains a list of a few other websites where you can probably order the novels in a variety of currencies and with credit cards.

Now available from Phantacea Publications

As in Arterial

Verne Andru artwork in a collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2012

Yep, Vetala's back in the pink again once her soldier falls from the sky and her monstrous (for a vulture) mount, Cloud General Kronar, brings her to him.

She's determined to stay that way, too. She isn't the only goddess willing to playing a Trigregos Gambit.

The artwork in this cell is entirely by Verne Andru, though the collage was prepared by Jim McPherson. The outer backgrounds for this page are fashioned of the same image.

Mercy is a Capital Offense

Collage of Verne Andru artwork prepared by Jim McPherson, 2012

That line actually belongs to Nergal Vetala, the titular goddess in "Goddess Gambit". However, as Vetala's soldier, by now Trigregos Incarnate, looks about to discover, Freespirit Nihila isn't exactly a kind, considerate entity (more so than deity) either.

Add in the Lathakran Death Goddess, Methandra Thanatos, as well as the Byronic Moon Goddess, Umashakti Silverstar, and it's probably only a matter of a few hundred pages for him to go from Incarnate to Incarnadine — as in an ever-after-motionless bloody pulp.

Collage by Jim McPherson, images by Verne Andru, 2012

Jim McPherson put together both collages. The artwork, though, is entirely by Verne Andru. So is the double-click on the upper one, though Verne inked it as a preliminary step to preparing a full-colour, wraparound cover for a phantacea comic book series that never got published.

(It was intended for an issue of the ill-fated Phantacea Phase One project of the mid-to-late 1980s, of which more here.)

The double-click is a similar strip of artwork. I used it for an ad I put out in 2011. More on that ad and the artwork that went into it links from here.

Annuling Nihila

Collage entitled Annuling Nihila, latest version prepared in 2012 by Jim McPherson

If memory serves, Freespirit Nihila named herself during the course of "The War of the Apocalyptics". As per here, attempting to 'annul' her in Gambit isn't just Vetala and her soldier's problem, though.

Herta Heartthrob encountered someone very similar to Nihila during "Contagion Collectors". Her appellation, rather than name, even began with an 'N' - Nemesis.

The artwork behind Verne's Nihila is by the extraordinary Mexican muralist Ferdinando Castro Pacheco (1918- ).

I took the shots I used from pictures I took of a couple of his murals in the Merida Town Hall some years ago.

Haunted Dustmound

Haunted Dustmound, based on artwork by Verne Andru 2012

"Vetala's middle finger salute to the Sedon Sphere"

The throne atop Dustmound was also seen in "Contagion Collectors". As for how it got from the Hoodoo Hamlet of 5476 YD to the Hadd of 5980, well, it is made out of Brainrock-Gypsium after all.

Vetala's Soldier

Collage made of images representative of The Trigregos Titan, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2012

So who is he?

In Gambit, the impression is he's Cosmicaptain Dmetri Diomad, the Double-D of the so-called Alphabet Cosmicompanions.

I suspect he blasted off that way. However, mind's are fragile, especially if Nergal Vetala, the Vampire Queen of the Dead gets hold of you.

She starts out calling him her 'soldier'. Thereafter he becomes he becomes her champion: the Trigregos Titan.

As for whether he was actually possessed by Thrygragos Lazareme. Well, if there's ever a Gambit sequel, we might learn the truth of that then.

Aspects of artwork came from the cover of pH-5, by Bateson over Andrusiek; here and of course the Verne Andru's long awaited cover.

Daemonic Royalty (Daemonicus & Primeval Lilith)

Lilith and Daemonicus, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2010

The figure representing Primeval Lilith, the Demon Queen of the Night, is by Henry Fuseli (1741-1825).

I used it on Hellion's cover as well as on the mock-up I prepared for 1000-Daze, two versions of which can be seen here.

Fuseli called her Great Night so how could I not choose her to stand in for one of phantacea's most misunderstood stand-outs?

Below Lunatic Lily (who's still a mass murderer no matter how justifiable her actions could be considered), the Smiling Fiend, or someone similar, seems to be in one of his two-eyed Daemonicus moments.

I took it from a postcard I bought in Germany back in 2008 whereas the background is from a postcard I bought in Sintra, Portugal, on that same 6-week European vacation.

Other than in a flashback sequence (an earlier version of which is still online here), Demon Queen Lilith does not appear in Gambit.

Demon King Daemonicus-Smiler is, however, an entirely different matter.

A link re both of them is here. , they are noted in Hellion's Character Companion.)

The Sedonic Eye-Mouth

Sedonic Eye Card, art by Ian Bateson, 1986; text and manipulation by Jim McPherson, 2011

The mighty eye-mouth in the sky above Sedon's Head is depicted about to slurp up the Cosmic Express.

The artwork is by Ian Bateson, circa 1986. The original appeared on the cover to phantacea Phase One #1, of which more is here and here.

As per here, a slightly different version of the Sedonic Eye-Mouth appeared on the back cover of "The War of the Apocalyptics".

The flip-side of this postcard is here. As already noted, aspects of Fangers could constitute a prequel to the 'Launch 1980' story cycle.

Goddess Gambit

Alternative cover for Goddess Gambit, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2004; Vetala image is by Ian Fry, ca. 1988

"Goddess Gambit" began life as "The Trigregos Gambit", of which much more is here, here, here and here.

Sample chapters from the 2004 rewrite of the web-serial are here. It's unlikely they'll make it as is to 2011's Gambit but they'll be close.

Although for Vetala's Soldier the titular Goddess is, of course, Nergal Vetala, three other devic goddesses play a Trigregos Gambit in the novel.

They are dot, dot and, um, well, sort of ...

Devils in Disguise

Devils in Disguise collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2011

The 'Devils in Disguise' collage belongs here in the sense that Gambit carries on from where an aspect of Fangers leaves off.

A few details re the shots that went into this collage are here. As for why the incomparable Harmony is wearing a shroud, well, um, let's call it symbolic for the moment.

Or, now that Gambit is available for ordering online, with or without credit cards, perhaps it wasn't a shroud at all.

Was, in pHantacea-phact, more of a chrysalis, albeit with nothing anywhere near as pretty emerging.

Detail of cover for Phantacea Six, artwork by Verne Andru, 1980

And of course before there was a "Goddess Gambit", there was 'The Trigregos Gambit'. But before even that, though, there was pH-6.

Interestingly, the emphasis on this cover is Bad Rhad, as he was recalled howsoever inaccurately in "Feeling Theocidal", the cover of which Verne also did.

The double-click is the full wraparound cover for pH-6, which came out in, um, 1980. I had to fuse them together on Photoshop so the meshing's sadly imperfect.

Tomcat Tattletail is the faerie-type Harmony is so enthralled with in Hellion. There's more on him here, here, here, here and here.

Even though I've collected a few other likenesses of Tomcat, which currently sit in my archives awaiting a mini-essay on him, I decided use this one because of the anguished facial expression.

NYC's Faux Bosch

An unidentified painting spotted in the Met Museum in NYC done in the style of Hieronymous Bosch, photo by Jim McPherson, 2009

Many painters tried to emulate Bosch's style in the 16th and 17th centuries. I took this picture of one such painting (unaccredited as near as I could discover) in New York City's Metropolitan Museum in 2009.

I use part of it to represent Magnus Minus, the mighty Minotaurus of Minius (Absudyl), which lies directly beneath the Weirdom of Cabalarkon (Sedon's Devic Eye-Land on a map of the Hidden Headworld).

The Rat-Catcher of Hamelin

The Pied Piper of Hamelin, as scanned in from Fortean Times, 2010

Yes, I cannot spot the signature of Jordan "Q for Quill" Tethys in this shot either.

Yes also, in the Legendarian's defence, it is a copy of the a stained glass window he purports to have done early in the Outer Earth's 14th Century.

And, no, none of the rats are tee-tees. They're children. The koppen or calvary-like hillock is shaped like a tholos. though.

As for the cave's entrance, well, at a stretch it might pass for a skull-shape or golgotha. Myself, though, I don't stretch that far.

The copy reproduced here dates to 1592. It's by Augustin von Moersperg. The actual window was destroyed in 1660.

The Anonymous Fiend

Budapest's Anonymous, shot by Jim McPherson in 2010

The Smiling Fiend is obviously not smiling in this shot of Budapest's famous Anonymous.

That said, given what Smiler's main attribute appears to be throughout the phantacea Mythos — namely that no one can remember him unless he's standing right in front of him or her and mindfully wants them to remember him — Anon has to be him.

It's almost impossible to hit a webpage on either of the two main phantacea websites that doesn't reference Smiler.

Hoodoo Housing

Hoodoo housing spotting in Cappadocia, photo by Jim McPherson, 2003

I shot the cliff-dwellings or, as they're called there, hoodoo housing in Cappadocia when I passed through it again in 2003.

Although they're not usually found on the coast of rainforests, something about the air beneath the Sedon Sphere allows for exceptional, um, exclusions from normality.

The double-click opens a new window with a larger version of the one I used on the Contagion cover. This one is more mound-like, which fits with who built the Hoodoo Hamlet visited in the mini-novel.

There are three brief travelogues re my trips to Turkey linked from here; the spookiest one, appropriately entitled 'The Phantom Train and other not quite Turkish delights', is here.

Devils & Deviants

Devils & Deviants collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2011

Have to say deviants (the half-sons or half-daughters of Master Devas while possessing mortal men or women) tend to be more sympathetic characters than their seemingly immortal half-parent or parents.

Guess that's because mortality makes mamas (and papas) more, um, simpatico.

The Smiler figure's from New York's Metropolitan Museum. The shrouded beauty, representative of the incomparable Harmony, the Unity of Balance as well as Panharmonium, is from the Victoria & Albert (V&A) museum in London.

Can't currently recall where the pinkish and demure Janna figure came from but have to say she doesn't look much like a Terrible Twin. Maybe that's why not just Abe Chaos fell for her.

Do know the wild-eyed fellow's from a postcard I bought in Germany. He was supposed to represent the other Terrible Twin, Sraddha Somata.

Too bad I couldn't find a picture of a black, bald and bearded hybrid-Utopian in my photo-archives.

Raised, not Razed

Embossed version of Fangers' front cover, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2011

Good effect, eh?

It's called "embossing" on Photoshop, in case you were wondering.

What is razed during "The 1000 Days of Disbelief" – or near enough, and not altogether entirely due to the Trigregos Titaness, Hubby Zalman or their Terrible Twins – is the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head.

That it survived, or is surviving, in the Year of the Dome 5980, does not mean it will continue to do so.

Hence the 'Launch 1980' story cycle that began with War-Pox and carries on in the as-yet-upcoming "Goddess Gambit".

Gambit, btw (by the way), is not just based on the phantacea comic books (culminating in pH-6), it's, um, extrapolated from this web-serial and this draft (draught?) of ditto.

Viennese Vetala

Tiled version of a painting spotted and shot in Vienna by Jim McPherson, , 2009

This effect is called "tiling" on Photoshop. I like it.

As for why I called her the Viennese Vetala, that's because I shot her there. (All right, so I cloned in the 3rd eye. Big Whoop!)

Artist's name is Egon Schiele (1890-1918). A contemporary of Gustav Klimt, the Wikipedia webpage re him is here.

If he was still around I'd hire him. He's captured the relationship between Nergal Vetala and Janna become Fangfingers damn near perfectly — emphasis on 'damn'.

Fauns Frolic Feverishly

Collage of fauns frolicking, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2011

Sooth said, they do a lot more than frolic feverishly – and I'm not just referring to how fabulously they play the Syrian or panpipes.

For one thing, if this collage can be trusted (which it can't), they also seem to float contentedly once they're done whatever they were doing ever so feverishly.

It all has to do with the pheromones they secrete, you see. As for why this collage can't be trusted, as both Harmony and her triplet brother, Lord Order, discover in Hellion, demons do fauns just as well as they do anything else – which is to say, well enough for the moment.

Simultaneously, or at least almost in the same moment, Uncle Abe and Bedazzling Belialma discover denim-demons can do double-duty as panting pants.

All in all, they'd thereafter all agree, if they got the chance, it's a very hardening experience all around.

Except, that is, for phantacea's most famous fauna, Pusan Wanderlust.

For her, the experience isn't so much electrifying as it is electrocuting.

There's only ever one winner of a Sedonplay

Collage  referring to the fact that only the Moloch Sedon ever wins a Sedonplay, graphic prepared by Jim McPherson, 2008

Dark Sedon is a notorious gamesman. But is he actually playing a game in "The Death's Head Hellion" or has he been trapped in dozens of ancient eyeorbs forged in the First Weirworld — ones that will actually keep him torn apart and imprisoned indefinitely?

I could answer that but I'd rather you read Hellion yourself.

The Great God Lazareme as Thrygragos Everyman

3 Images suggestive of Thrygragos Lazareme, collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2008

Thrygragos Lazareme was in some respects proof of the theorem that in every individual there resides the spark of godhood.

Put another way, if God, as he’d heard, was made in the image and likeness of whomever or whatever, he had an innate as well as, to quote him at his acerbic best, God-given aptitude for unthinkingly making sure he looked the part.

Helios order Machine Memory to nuke Weir Star

Artwork by Ian Fry, late 1980s, colour and text by Jim McPherson, 2007

The Trigregos Sisters appeared in pH-2, pH-4 and the graphic novel, "Forever & 40 Days – The Genesis of phantacea".

They have yet to appear to appear in any of the mosaic novels but their terrible talismans certainly do, otherwise I'd have to come up with a different title for 'The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories'.

As for the Dual Entities, well, it may yet prove they appear whenever Thrygragos Lazareme or his indescribable daughter Harmony, the Unity of both Balance and Panharmonium.

The Luscious Lady Lust

Apple Goddess Collage most specific to Bouncing Belle, graphic prepared by Jim McPherson, 2008

Hell's Belle lives her attribute. In Feel Theo, she seems primarily interested in Cruel Plathon, the Bull of Mithras.

In Hellion, she bounces from Uncle Abe Chaos (Unholy Abaddon) to his father, Thrygragos Lazareme, to his hated brother, Lord Order.

In Contagion, well, she only has a short but telling conversation with Harmony before she heads back to Chaos for some extracurricular star-gazing.

As for "Janna Fangfingers", the third part of 1000-Daze, remind to add to this entry when it comes out.

Herta Heartthrob

Datong Harmonia, collage by Jim McPherson ,2009

Dire, age 4, is a Norman Notable. In phantacea pHact he's actually Albrecht Durer, whom you may have heard of before. Dire and the hound Drang (whose name I admittedly also made up) appear a few times during Contagion.

It's my contention that Durer, like Bosch and the notorious Spanish inquisitor, Torquemada, were recruited by Contagion Collectors organized by Quoits Tethys (whose main agents were Tomcat Tattletail and Herta Heartthrob) and thereafter actually spent some time on the Hidden Headworld.

Strikes me as obvious, especially when it comes to Bosch and Durer.

I mean, where else would they have come up with such fantastical imagery firsthand, especially at the tail end of the Outer Earth's plague-ridden 15th Century?

Lathakra's Death God of Heat and Fire

Minerva as Methandra, photo taken in Frankfurt by Jim McPherson, 2008

Standard wisdom has it that bygone Illuminaries of Weir (on Earth) came up with Methandra's name by combining letters making up Mediterranean Athena (Minerva in Roman Mythology).

I'm pretty sure it actually derived from the name of Crete's Mother Goddess, who lived on Strongyne (modern day Santorini) until the infamous day Novadev got drunk and blew its heart into the sky.

But, hey, who am I to argue with standard wisdom. I'll leave that to Wisdom of Lazareme, who's quoted here (right next to where I cribbed this image.)

Lathakra's Death God of Cold and Ice

Collage suggestive of King Cold, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2011

The Death God's of Lathakra (Cold and Heat) are Mithradite firstborn. Their triplet brother is Phantast Thanatos, the Death God of Dream.

Phantast doesn't appear in 'The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories' Trilogy. He isn't mentioned very often either. And when he is it's usually in the same sentence as Strife and the Crimson Conspiracy of circa 4000 YD.

Tantal and Methandra do, however, especially, as per here, in Hellion. As does their azura daughter Klannit (the Mirror Mentalist).

Mithras's Golden Avenger

Collage on Faceless Strife prepared by Jim McPherson, 2007,  integral images taken from Web

Just because Faceless Strife, Mithras's so-called Ewe for Aries and the devic half-mother of Taurus Chrysaor Attis, doesn't appear in Hellion, that doesn't mean devils realize it.

Daddy Cabby's Champion

Tura's Allegory of Spring reminds me of Morgan Abyss, the Master of Weir circa 4825 YD

At least that's one way of thinking about Morgan Abyss, the Master of the Weirdom of the Cabalarkon (Sedon's Devic Eye-Land on a map of the Hidden Continent) in 4824/5.

It may or may not be the way she thinks about herself. It certainly isn't the way devils think about her, especially after the events of the Infernal Equinox.

Until then they probably didn't think about her very much at all. If they did, which Harmony did prior to Mithramas 4824, they likely reckoned her Pyrame's shell.

Deviancies and phantacea

Some of the Deviants appearing in 1000 Daze, Jim McPherson 2011

Some of 1000-Daze's Deviants include, as noted in this graphic, Q-Troupe's Squirrelly, Master Morgan Abyss, Pusan Wanderlust, Tomcat Tattletail and the ever-present Jordan 'Quill' Tethys.

Images incorporated in this collage come from a variety of places, Durer included. The quill's actually taken from a wall painting I spotted and shot in Vancouver some years back now.

As per here, I also used it on the cover for "Janna Fangfingers", the third mini-novel extracted from 1000-Daze.

 

Nergal Vetala as Fecundity

An ancient goddess with a moon-sickle, photographed in a one-time Roman bathouse, circa Nero's time, in  2008

She waxes and wanes with the moon, on a monthly basis, but as the Nergalids' Grower, she's also related to fertility goddesses such as the Roman Ceres (hence our word 'cereal').

The thing about Ceres and her ilk is they're mostly perceived as beneficent. Vetala is too, at least initially and especially by the Iraches of Sedon's Mutton Chop (on a map of the Hidden Continent).

Of course, they like nothing better than having their ancestors over for tea and buttered scones.

Top of Section - Downwards

 

Vetala's also a (very nasty) Moon Goddess

Vetala as Moon Goddess Fecundity, image of a Judith figure shot in Florence, Italy, by Jim McPherson 2008

The reference is mainly to what she, when in seductress mode, does to Pyrame Silverstar in Feel Theo.

She's much better behaved in Hellion and Contagion, though she does suggest to Order that he cathonitizes himself, which isn't a very nice thing to say to a Master Deva.

(As per here, it's way worse than telling a devil to go f**k himself, which of course is what Geld Neargon does whenever he-she desires azuras.)

Magnus Minus, the Mighty Minotaurus of Minius

Shot of a demon, behind glass, taken by Jim McPherson in Lima, Peru, in 1998 and modified on PHOTOSHOP in 2007

Minius is Absudyl, the Subterranean Land of the Mandroids, beneath Sedon's Devic Eye-Land on a map of the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head.

As for who made Minus in the first place, the double-click suggests Pyrame Silverstar.

One mustn't forget who she was occupying, unless it was the other way around (as would seem the case in Hellion), throughout most of the Head's history, however.

Utopians of Weir

The caption reads: Mythos Utopian Eyeorbs Manifesting Gargoyle; images of Cacuceus and Gargoyles were taken from the Internet and  put together by Jim McPherson, using PHOTOSHOP, in 2004

There were (as opposed to 'are') two Weirworlds. The second one is where the Trigregos Sisters were last seen in the comic books and graphic novel.

There are also a variety of different kinds of Utopians in phantacea. Hybrid Utopians, who are no longer purebloods, are mostly found outside the Weirdom of Cabalarkon (Sedon's Devic Eye-Land on a map of the Hidden Headworld).

As such they dominate proceedings in Contagion. Pure U-Bloods are the focus in Hellion, however.

That said, Morgan Abyss, the Master of Cabalarkon throughout the mini-novel, isn't even a hybrid. That doesn't mean she doesn't hate Sedon, though.

Far from it!

Ring-Gotten Devils

Ringot with Metowl, by Bosch

Virtually ever since I began phantacea on the Web in (gasp!) 1996, I've run a feature entitled Serendipity. It chronicles all sorts of serendipitous discoveries that make me wonder how much I've actually made up and how much of phantacea is real.

Consider now ringots. Those familiar with the comic books (Aristotle 'Ringleader 2' Zeross) and/or the Web Serials (Angelo 'Ringleader 1' Zeross) will have recognized them straightaway.

Centuries before either Zeross, father or son, came along, they figure rather irreplaceably in both Hellion and Contagion.

Intriguingly, nay serendipitously, guess what Bosco, age 26, must have spotted in the not precisely aforementioned Garden of Earthy Delights besides the Juggler (double-click for a cut-out)?

Yep, a ringot — and not just any ringot either but one containing Metisophia, the Legendarian's devic half-mother. How do I know this?

Well, in "Janna Fangfingers", the concluding third of 1000-Daze, guess who returns? As for why she's called Metowl by then, um, well (again), it gets complicated.

Aka Titanic Metis, she doesn't feature in Hellion because she's been ring-gotten. (Her purloined cauldron does, however.)

And the Juggler's on the cover of Contagion at least in part because his belly shows Metis ring-gotten. Only, I just realized that about a year after I prepared the cover.

Talk about serendipity delayed.

Covers for 2 1000-Daze mini-novels, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2010covers for Contagion Collectors and Death's Head HellionThere are plenty of websites that display artwork by Hieronymous Bosch (Bosco, age 26, in "Contagion Collectors") and Albrecht Durer (Dire, age 4, in "Contagion Collectors"). Wikipedia, for example, has plenty by both. In order to save you a search, I've highlighted a few of them.

In terms of Bosch, I took the Juggler and the lower edge of the front cover for Contagion from a triptych entitled 'The Garden of Earthly Delights'. For reasons made clear therein, it's called the garden of earthy delights in Contagion. The mini-novel also makes clear that Bosch didn't make it up — at least he didn't within the phantacea Mythos.

'The Ascent of the Empyrean', which appears on both the front and back cover of Contagion, is one-fourth of a major work entitled 'Visions of Beyond'. The version I used is from a poster replacing the actual painting in the Doge's palace of Venice. Apparently the original was being cleaned while I was there in 2008.

As for Durer, the putto (who once ate Sinistral Envy), Drang (not yet a dachshund, thus not yet having wolfed down the murine crud containing Camorva Freeflight) and Herta Heartthrob (a technically daemonic, hence soulless, earthborn eidolon given flesh) come from Melancholia.

(Should perhaps add, as a bonus teaser, that Herta is a melancholic angel in the sense that she has wings and is lovely, except she seems plagued by sadness at her own lack of fulfillment. Above all else, she wants to wholly devour the Unity of Balance, whom even she perceives as Beauty Incarnate, instead of simply settling for gathered-up scum-cream left behind on Tholoi hearthstones that Harmony used to get to the Outer Earth in pursuit of Tomcat Tattletail – a character introduced as such in Hellion – long, and often, pre-book.)

Both Death and the goatish Devil came from 'The Knight'. The 'Four Horsemen' came from just that. Two version of page backgroundsTwo versions of potential cover for 1000 Daze, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2009As for why he depicted the rider with the Scales of Justice (unless it's for weighing produce in times of pestilence, drought, and/or consequential famine) as a man instead of the most incomparably gorgeous woman ever beheld by everyone, well, assuming the phantacea Mythos isn't pure fantasy, Dire was only 4 at the time of Contagion and might have been missing his mother, if not his dog.

The British Museum has piles of Durer's prints. It even puts out a small hardcover that can probably be ordered online as if just to prove it. I scanned in the ones I used for the covers on this page, as well as its background images, from art books I already had at home.

Just by the bye, as per here, Durer's Death looks a lot like old King Cold, Tantal Thanatos, did in the comic books. Which is doubly appropriate since Cold is one of the aforementioned Death Gods of Lathakra – the other being immediate sister Methandra, Hot Stuff, Mithras's Virgin (in both Feel Theo and Hellion, though no longer in the comic books) or just plain Heat (after her attribute) – and Thanatos is the name of the Ancient Greek God of Death.

Just as interesting (to me anyhow), Durer's Devil might well be someone the recurring deviant, Pusan Wanderlust, would fall for in both Hellion and Contagion. That's because, as per here, Pusan's a female faun or fauna and everyone knows what fauns are best at doing, a lot. It's also why I incorporated Durer's Devil into the Deviancies graphic.

NOTE: the last two images in this panel don't double-click. They roll over, rather effectively I feel.

Mater Matare (Mother Murder) as a Medusa pinned to Athena's shield; painting spotted and shot at NYC's Met Museum in 2009

The Byronmask as a Thrygragos Talisman

Collage prepared on PHOTOSHOP by Jim McPherson, 2006, intended to represent the Mask of Byron as transformed in 'Feeling Theocidal'

Thrygragos Byron remembered in the form of an Olmec Head in Mexico

(The Unmoving One appeared most prominently in "Feeling Theocidal", "The 1000 Days of Disbelief", and "The War of the Apocalyptics"; more on the Thrygragos Talismans is here)

Medea has a bad rep

Collage made up of a number of images scanned in or else taken from the Web by Jim McPherson, who the mother of the 3rd potential Trig Trip is contained within it; collage prepared by Jim McPherson, 2007

Ophiomedea as a Cockatrice

For 17-year-old Sorciere, Medea Annulis ranked highest on the boo-hiss meter in early 1938

(more shots suggestive of Stheno, the devic Cockatrice from "Feeling Theocidal", can be found here and here)

Shamanitoulin

The Raven Fetishim collage, prepared by Jim McPherson, using pictures mostly taken in Mexcio, 2007

Shaman Manitoulin's Raven Fetishim

Manitoulin is mentioned a few times in War-Pox as the Cheyenne Medicine Man who raised Blind Sundown and thereafter passed his solar spear and the reins of Raven's Head onto him; he also shows up in most of the 1938 web-serials;

He also helped raise Sorciere (Solace Sunrise), her mother Louise Riel become St Synne and Sedon St Synne; fetishim came most strongly into play during 'The Moloch Manoeuvres' web-serial

Number One on the Boo-Hiss Meter in any era

Collage on Faceless Strife prepared by Jim McPherson, 2007,  integral images taken from Web

Faceless Strife is mentioned a few times in War-Pox, albeit as either Wilderwitch or Ramona Avar Ryne and not as a possessive devil; impressions to the contrary, she probably does not appear in the mini-novel "The Death's Head Hellion"; she finally does reappear in the Phantacea Mythos novels "Nuclear Dragons" and "Helios on the Moon"

Hush's Gush

Collage made up of various images suggestive of Young Death, the Male Trickster; prepared by Jim McPherson, 2007, using his own photo as well as images taken from Web

Young Death

Augustus born Nauroz, aka Auguste Moirnoir, the Black Death, is mentioned a few times in War-Pox as the insidious little midget who called Dervish Furie son; he appears, with all his despicable knacks, in "The Trigregos Gambit" web-serial as well as, knacks intact, both "Goddess Gambit" and "Helios on the Moon"

Radiant Rainbow Rider

Fanciful graphic suggestive of Gloriel, prepared on PHOTOSHOP by Jim McPherson, 2005

Gloriella D'Angelo Dark

(Glory of the Angels appears most frequently in "The War of the Apocalyptics"; perhaps suggestively, externalizations virtually identical to her 'little angels' show up in "Contagion Collectors")

1/3rd of Thrygragos Sedon's Firstborn

Fanciful gif of Bad Rhad as a tree sprite, prepared on PHOTOSHOP by Jim McPherson, 2005

The (almost) Never-Remembered Smiling Fiend

Smiler, under a variety of names and guises, appears in "Feeling Theocidal", "The Trigregos Gambit" and, just maybe, all three parts of "The 1000 Days of Disbelief"; he both speaks and exults briefly in "Helios on the Moon" whereupon, as per usual, he's promptly forgotten

Resolutely not toilet-trained

Raven's Head collage, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2009

Raven's Head

A raven's head appeared on the front cover of "Forever & 40 Days - The Genesis of PHANTACEA"; flying ravendeer also played a part in "Feeling Theocidal";

Raven's Head herself appeared throughout the "The War of the Apocalyptics" as well as in "Goddess Gambit" and "Helios on the Moon"

Hot Stuff

Minerva as Methandra, photo taken in Rome by Jim McPherson, 2008

Mithras's Virgin

Methandra Thanatos, whose attribute is heat, virtually never appears in public unmasked; she also rarely deigns to speak to lesser beings

Miss Myth, as she's also known, appears in "Feeling Theocidal", "The Death's Head Hellion" and "The Trigregos Gambit", but her main claim to fame comes in "Goddess Gambit" and "Helios on the Moon"

Is that D'Angelo or Thanatos?

Image suggestive of Thalassa D'Angelo, prepared by Jim McPherson, 2010

Sea Goddess

As Thalassa D'Angelo she appears in most of the web-serials set in early 1938 as well as in "The War of the Apocalyptics"; it isn't until the final stages of the 'Launch 1938' story cycle that she's all-but-proven to be a fourth generational devil

Who was Jesse's real father

The Dragon of Versailles also appears in Centurium, the central cavern of Temporis, shot by Jim McPherson, text and layout ditto the

Old Man Power

OMP appeared in "The War of the Apocalyptics" and "The Trigregos Gambit"; Magister Mandam, sometimes as Dragon Joe, appeared in most of the early 1938 web-serials

Kronokronos Akbarartha got major league muscular in both "Goddess Gambit" and "Helios on the Moon"

 

Taurus Chrysaor Attis

collage by Jim McPherson, 2008

Aka Theattis, the Golden Brown Warrior or Universal Soldier, he was worshipped throughout the Roman Empire, often in conjunction with the Great Mother God Cybele

Attis appears in "Feeling Theocidal"; also mentioned in "Goddess Gambit" wherein Vetala's Soldier is often referred to as her Attis

The Damnation Brigade

GIFs with transparent backgrounds representing the Damnation Brigade and the Apocalyptics, collage prepared on PHOTOSHOP by Jim McPherson, 2004

Introduced in "The War of the Apocalyptics"; what's left of them also showed up in "Goddess Gambit" and "Helios on the Moon"

Five of them were Summoning Children; as such, much younger versions of most of them played important roles in the pH-Webworld web-serials

Utopians of Weir

The caption reads: Mythos Utopian Eyeorbs Manifesting Gargoyle; images of Cacuceus and Gargoyles were taken from the Internet and  put together by Jim McPherson, using PHOTOSHOP, in 2004

Utopians appeared throughout 'The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories' epic trilogy ("Feeling Theocidal", "The 1000 Days of Disbelief" and "Goddess Gambit");

they were also in a number of web-serials, including "The Trigregos Gambit"; they were most often depicted in "Forever & 40 Days - The Genesis of PHANTACEA", which can still be ordered

Much more on Utopians here and here

Great Byron's Surviving Firstborn

Collage prepared on PHOTOSHOP by Jim McPherson, 2005

Rudra (Savage Storm) and Umashakti (Gravity) Silvercloud made their most notable appearance in "Goddess Gambit"; they also had important roles in "Feeling Theocidal" and "The 1000 Days of Disbelief"

There's an essay about them here

Closing Comments

Mouse-overs provide details on the graphics. In the case of artwork for the comics and graphic novel, mouse-overs provide the name of the artist. Particularly in the case of some of the collages and potential covers, I occasionally incorporated images taken from the web or scanned in from books in my extensive library. Virtually everything else reproduced on this webpage are my own photographs.

There are over 50 lynx here-on. Every one of them opens onto a new browser page. That way you can chance a glance at the graphic in its natural habitat, or pause to read the text, and/or follow the other day-glow lynx on whichever webpage I've directed you. So long as you keep the home and prime picture gallery page open, you can get back here from whenever you've closed down the last one you were looking at, howsoever intently.

BTW, I'm still selling howsoever-trashed, print copies of the PHANTACEA Comic Books. Only issues 1-4 are remain available. Cost for returned copies of the comic books are $5.00 each, CDN or USD. Shipping and handling fees are of course extra. I've also been known to scan in and email copies of any or all of them (meaning #s 5 & 6 as well) at a low, solely screen reproducible, resolution of 72 dpi for an, ahem, somewhat heftier price tag of $10.00 in either currency.

The PHANTACEA Graphic Novel, though, that you can still order at its original $10.00 price tag (plus the inevitable shipping and handling costs). Check out the Ordering Information on pH-Webworld then email me for instructions on how to load up on the whole pile. Be forewarned that I can only accept certified cheques and money orders. Sorry, no credit cards as yet.

Since it's the only snail-mail address I have, whereby reaching me is pretty much guaranteed these days, said certified cheques or money orders must be sent to:
