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 ...

Published in 2011; two storylines recounted side-by-side, the titular one narrated by the Legendarian in 5980, the other indirectly leading into the 'Launch 1980' story cycle; main web presence is here; Character Companion starts here; ordering lynx are here;

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" is now available for ordering.

Of course you can always email me your order(s) today and, no matter where you live or what currency you prefer to use, I'll fill them myself.

More shameless promo for the Summer 2009 edition of phantacea.com

Welcome. Or welcome back, as the case may be. At the risk of repeating myself:

"Feeling Theocidal", the first ever, all-prose novel featuring Jim McPherson's PHANTACEA Mythos, can now be ordered. Kindly do so immediately!

If this is your first visit, you may be wondering what you've stumbled onto -- and what you are about to add to your list of favourite bookmarks. Well, wonder no longer. Since 1977 PHANTACEA has been providing highly imaginative, action-oriented Anheroic Fantasy in the form of comic books, a graphic novel and all-prose novels, many of which, going back to 1996, have been serialized online. This particular website carries on that happy heritage.

phantacea.com is the only website thus far dedicated entirely to print publications featuring Jim McPherson's PHANTACEA Mythos. Unless noted differently in the text or image mouse-overs, everything you see is written, photographed, scanned-in and/or otherwise prepared by Jim McPherson.

All sorts of ever-so-pertinent lynx to all sorts of often impertinent webpages, including where its previous Welcoming Page went, can be accessed from here. That's a dot-ditto for Web Publisher's Commentaries preserved in pH-Webworld.

This particular page also contains a table of recently prepared graphics with lynx to larger views of the same graphics within this or related websites. As where noted on a slowly increasing number of suchlike graphics tables, you can now double-click on the image in order to enlarge it in a separate window.

Should additionally take this opportunity to mention, hardly for the last time, that Lightning Source Inc (LSI) has exclusive rights to distribute the novel. That means that individual copies of "Feeling Theocidal" can be ordered from amazon.com and its affiliates, including amazon.ca and amazon.co.uk, as well as from Barnes & Noble. Click the lynx provided or go to their sites, type "Feeling Theocidal" into their search engine and proceed from there.

In much the same way, bookstores and bookseller collectives can place bulk orders through the Ingram Book Company, Ingram International and/or Baker & Taylor. I'm assured that the terms you're used to shall apply.

LSI's worldwide distribution partners are listed here. If the lynx provided don't take right to pages with ordering info for 'Feel Theo', you should be able to paste their names into any search engine and, once you reach their website, use the book's title to find out how you can order it from them.

Or you can email me today and I'll arrange to fill them myself, for a slightly additional cost to cover shipping, tax and customs issues, especially if you reside outside of Canada.

List price is $24.00 CDN in Canada and $23.00 USD in the States. As linked from here, the graphic novel, which is entitled "Forever & 40 Days - the Genesis of PHANTACEA", can be ordered via email from PHANTACEA on the Web. It is still being sold at its original list price of $10.00 in both Canada and the USA.

Remainder copies of the first four PHANTACEA comic books are also available, albeit for $5.00 in both currencies. Shipping and handling fees are extra. Be forewarned that I can only accept certified cheques and money orders. Sorry, no credit cards as yet.

Comments always appreciated. With your permission, I may reproduce some of them somewhere at sometime. Until then, as I used to end off this sort of thing when I was publishing comic books, be pHantacizing you. JMcP
