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 Site Updated

I have just completed a major overhaul of my Mythania web site, and things should be looking a lot better now. The web site menu, layout, navigation, and other features should be a lot easier to interact with, and I also have an image gallery up, so take a look...

Capitalization of Fantasy Race Names, Redux

I have revised my essay on the Capitalization of Fantasy Race Names. With further consideration and additional research, I have determined that my original conclusion — that the race name should be treated as a proper noun — was wrong. Instead, fantasy race names are really common nouns, and in...

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.

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....

Maps of Mythania!

The following page shows the geographic maps of the world of Mythania. These maps are shown in quarters of the world, beginning with Tarrona, then the Sea of Isles, and finally Celaphania. The forth quarter, being nothing by the wide expanse of the Vast Sea, is not depicted. Please allow...

Magic in the World of Mythania

In the world of Mythania, magic is quite prevalent and pervasive. While only a small fraction of a percent of people are able to wield magic (estimated between 0.2% to 0.5%), this still amounts to well over a million persons. Of those, less than 5% are able to display any...

The World of Mythania

Mythania lies far beyond the world we know, a planet orbiting the golden star Solaron along with her dark sister world, Atracus, locked in an eternal celestial dance. This is a world where juggernaut war machines ravage the landscape; where stupendous air fleets dominate the skies; where mighty wizards battle...
