The Clockwork Horseman

My steampunk fantasy short story, The Clockwork Horseman, is published and available now on both Amazon and Lulu and it can be found in the anthology Devil’s Armory III. Alas, there does not appear to be an e-book version! Oh well. The story will one day be available in e-book...

Down in the Clockwork City

My latest steampunk fantasy story to be published has arrived! Down in the Clockwork City has been released under the Society of Misfit Stories anthology series, and is now available for Kindle download from Amazon.com. The description they gave it has a bit to be desired, but I didn’t come...

The Mines of Nuram

My steampunk fantasy short story, The Mines of Nuram, has been published in the January 2016 issue of Bards and Sages Quarterly. If you want to check it out, and read some other good stories as well, you can get a print copy through Amazon or a Kindle addition if you prefer.

Mythania Web Site Redesigned

Starting today, you may notice a somewhat new look-and-feel for the Mythania web site. I have abandoned the cumbersome content management system (not to be named) and completely redesigned the site with my own custom PHP code, javascript, and xhtml. It should also look a bit cleaner and more modern...

Currency and Measurement in Mythania

I’ve just posted up detailed information on the various currencies and measurement systems in the fantasy world of Mythania. Being that Mythania is not Earth, it certainly stands to reason that their currencies and measuring systems will not be the same as ours (although they are admittedly very similar). As...

Capitalization of Fantasy Race Names

Capitalization of Fantasy Race Names by Mark William Chase I have struggled for some time with the conundrum of capitalization as it concerns the names of fantasy races. As a reader, I never really paid the matter much thought; as a writer, the issue never seems to stop troubling me....
