Front cover for Goddess Gambit by Verne Andru, 2012

Published in 2012; main webpage is here; ordering lynx are here

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!

"Goddess Gambit"

– Now available from Phantacea Publications –

Eyemouth over cover for Gambitsedonic eyes"For the Dead to Thrive, the Living must Die!"

So proclaims Nergal Vetala, the Blood Queen of Hadd.

When her soldier falls out of the sky she's not only back in the pink again – as in arterial – she reckons she's found the perfect foil through which to play, and win, a Trigregos Gambit.

She might be right as well.

"The 1000 Days of Disbelief" is not only 3/3rds Done, it's E-done (albeit for Kindle, not kidding nor kindling)

In part to celebrate the 35th Year of Anheroic Fantasy, Phantacea Publications is pleased to announce that "Feeling Theocidal", Book One of the trilogy, and all three mini-novels extracted from 1000-Daze are available on the Kindle platform from amazon.com and a number its affiliates worldwide.

Alternative covers for Goddess Gambitcovers and characters from Janna FangfingersSubtitled Sedonplay, Sedon Plague and Sedon Purge, the mini-novels commence, continue and conclude Book Two of 'The Thrice-Cursed Godly Glories' trilogy.

Watch for e-versions of Book Three, "Goddess Gambit", and its full-length predecessor in the Launch 1980 story cycle, "The War of Apocalyptics", coming soon from Phantacea Publications.

Top of Page - Upwards - Downwards - Bottom of Page Ordering Lynx

========

Like the first two mini-novels extracted from 1000-Daze, "The Death's Head Hellion" and "Contagion Collectors", "Janna Fangfingers" contains a book-specific character companion. An Auctorial Prefatory and the opening chapter extracted from Gambit round out a 230-page volume bargain-priced at only $12.00 per book CAD and USD, vastly less as an e-book.

(Please note: although their character companions are for the most part applicable to Feel Theo, in large measure they're not so much so to either War-Pox or Gambit, which tend to feature characters more prevalent in the phantacea comic books and web-serials.)

Together they carry on recording the multi-millennia-long chronicles of the gods and goddesses, the demons and monsters, of antique mythologies — the same seemingly endless saga also presented in the 1990 graphic novel, "Forever & 40 Days — The Genesis of phantacea", and the three, thus-far-published, full-length mosaic novels featuring Jim McPherson's Phantacea Mythos.

Variations on covers prepared for Goddess Gambit

Each of the mini-novels is complete unto itself. Among many another character, they feature Thrygragos Everyman and his firstborn Unities (the incomparable Harmony, Thunder & Lightning Lord Order and Uncle Abe Chaos) in their freewheeling prime. On top of that, Fangers presents a framing story set in 5980 Year of the Dome. As such it could be considered a prequel to the Launch 1980 story cycle that began in earnest with War-Pox and eventually picks up again in Gambit.

E-books for Kindle, Kindle Fire, I-pad, I-phone and other applications can be ordered through amazon.com, amazon.co.uk and other amazon affiliates worldwide.

E-books on other platforms are also available. Check you favourite online bookseller for the latest list and ordering instructions for Phantacea Publications.

BookFinder.com lists the latest releases from Phantacea Publications along with a goodly number of additional booksellers carrying them. Also listed therein are almost all of the PHANTACEA Mythos print and e-publications, including the graphic novel and some of the comic books.

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 many releases from Phantacea Publications.

As for the Whole Earth (other than the Hidden Continent of Sedon's Head, at least as far as I can say and always assuming it's still around in what be its 61st century), well, 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.

Of course you can always email or send me your order(s) via surface mail. No matter where you live or what currency you prefer to use, I'll figure out a way to fill your order(s) myself. Just be aware that I can only accept certified cheques or money orders. Plus, I'll have to charge an additional 12% to cover Canadian and provincial goods and sales taxes as well as Canada Post rates for shipping.

I do use bubble mailers, though.

Brainrock, Gypsium, Godstuff[SOMETHING THAT LOOKS A LITTLE LIKE BRAINROCK, PHOTOGRAPH BY JIM MCPHERSON, 1991]

Brainrock came into being when the Primodial Godhead exploded in the first moment of the Big Bang. Reputedly semi-sentient, fragments of it spread throughout the Cosmos. When it is glowing, it acts as a teleportive agent.

Stepping stones such as Anthean Agates, Afrite Bulbs, Korant Kernels, and Hellstones are largely composed of Brainrock. So are devic talismans such as Airealist's Aerod, Sea's Aqua Ankh, Miracle Maenad/Nergal Vetala/Rhea Ararat's moon-sickle, and Demon Land's Stalactite Club.

Cathonic Fluid is Distilled Brainrock while Gypsium, of Cosmic Express and Doc Defiance fame, is just another name for this miraculous substance. Its neutralizing agent is Stopstone, also called Solidium.

Mastery of Stopstone is what makes a Mithrant Persian an Earth Magician while Mastery of Brainrock is what makes a Heliodromus a Sky Magician. Devils are Brainrock-Blessed and so are the Dual Entities, which is why they could be considered Immortals. For what is Brainrock except Godstuff?

An answer to that may be 'it's also devic stuff'. Which is why, as per here (albeit without giving too much away), it's not the best weapon to use against devils.

In the process of successfully withstanding the unkind attentions of her highborn brother, Harmony had more than just rediscovered the ability to take over the body of any debrained daemon. She’d reacquainted herself with another underutilized devic knack: the ability to absorb, as if by osmosis, the caldera’s Brainrock-Gypsium.

Not only that, she’d perforce reminded herself that doing so recharged her.

... from "The 1000 Days of Disbelief"

NOTE: The main entry on Brainrock-Gypsium Godstuff is here

The Sedonshem Lands in Eden's Zoo

Hell to Earth artwork by Ian Fry, late 1980s; colour and script by Jim McPherson, 2007In the Year 669 Pre-Dome (PD) or 4669 Before the Common Era (BC), devils came to Earth en masse. An immediate casuality of the Sedonshem or Sedonship landing was Droch Nor, the Seventh Patriarch of Golden Age Humankid, and all those then listening to him in what was already known as Kanin City.

Much later Kanin City became one of a number of Weirdoms on the Inner Earth of Sedon's Head. As such, until its ruination during the Thousand Days of Disbelief, it was a thriving, devil-free metropolis on the outskirts of the Gregarian Fields or Sedon's Mole, the site of Thrygragon in 4376 YD (Year of the Dome).

In 669 PD the future Sedon's Head was known as the Archipelago of Pacifica. At that time, therefore, Kanin City and the Gregarian Fields were part of a small island.

The Year Zero annotated in the graphic to the right refers to the year given in the Bible for the birth of Adam. Funnily enough, the Bible seems to have two Adams. Even funnier (or weirder), cabbalists evidently call the primordial Adam none other than Adam Kadmon.

Hmm and double hmm when you consider the Male Entity was identified in the PHANTACEA comic books as Kadmon Heliopolis. Oh, and believe me, I didn't know caballists even existed in the early 1970s when I first concocted most of the PHANTACEA Mythos.

Alorus Ptah is the name I came up with way back then for the 1st patriarch of Golden Age Humankind. He would have been born (or at least brought up) in Old Eden. In all likelihood he would also have been responsible for the Golden Agers' implicit, but untold, rebellion and, possibly, for its subsequent sinking circa Year One Hundred.

Within the PHANTACEA Mythos Alorus Ptah was the Male Entity whereas the Female Entity was Tristar Thrae (the Biblical Eve). She was the birth mother of Abel and Seth, the 2nd patriarch of Golden Age Humankind. Primeval Lilith, the Queen of Demons, was the birth mother of Anti-Patriarch Cain.

The Unities Come Across Enoch City [THE UNITIES COMING ACROSS ENOCH CITY -- POSSIBLY THE ORIGINAL TRIGON]

A couple of years later, the first-born Unities of Lazareme, Unholy Abaddon (Chaos), Lord Yajur (Order) and Harmonia (Balance), who began calling herself Freespirit Nihila in 5980 YD, spot Anti-Patriarch Cain and his three young wives, Eden-Devaura, Mnemosyne-Sapiendev, and Cybele-Demeter, taking the air in Sinai City.

By 661 PD, that would no longer be possible.

Anti-Patriarch Cain Raises the Golden CalfProposed Front Cover for a PHANTACEA publication entitled Cain, Slayer of Abel, artwork by Ian Fry, ca 1988

Big Mistake! So much for the Anti-Patriarch, thousands of his followers, most of his line, Power Point Sumeria, and the Angelycs guarding the Gates of Eden.

What happened was, some 8 years after the Sedonshem landed atop Kanin City (and Droch Nor, among many others) Anti-Patriarch Cain (yes, that Cain, the Biblical Slayer of Abel) is duped by Multi-Horns (later on named Plathon, the Bull of Mithras) into having constructed a golden calf with an atomic heart.

This, in his 985th year of life, you might as well know, Cain ignites at the Gates of Eden, thereby killing himself and a vast multitude of his followers.

In the graphic novel ("Forever & 40 Days - The Genesis of PHANTACEA", which can still be ordered), there's a strong suggestion that Cain is actually Heliosophos in his 1st lifetime.

(Have to admit, as I sit here writing this for the Autumn 2007 update of PHANTACEA on the Web, I'm still fairly certain the time-tumbling Male Entity began his seemingly interminable existence as Kadmon Heliopolis in 1940 AD.

He's convinced of it, too; at least he is in the 1938 Heliodyssey serials. Otherwise he wouldn't be so intent on killing Kad's parents before he's even conceived.)

[BYRON LOSES HIS BODY -- from pH4-Ever & 40]

Thrygragos Byron Loses His Body

In the year 366 PD, the Great God thereafter known as the 'Unmoving One', mostly because he no longer had a torso with which to move, leads his forces against Power Point Sumeria. THE MASK OF BYRON, AS WORN BY OLD MAN POWER, drawn for ph-2 by Ian Bateson, 1978Being the cerebral type, it is unlikely he ever missed his body. However, Golden Agers mourned Mahurus Zir, their fifth and then eldest surviving patriarch.

The Mask of Byron was one of The Thrygragos Talismans. Among those who had it over the years include the Attis, the feeorin hero known as Kadesh, Magister Mandam, and Old Man (OMP) Power.

It later came into the possession of Magister Joseph Mandam then Obadiah Melvin (OMP) Power, who destroyed it in a fit of madness during the War of the Apocalyptics in December 1980;

Thrygragos Mithras Slaying the Celestial Bull[AN IMAGE OF MITHRAS SLAYING THE CELESTIAL BULL TAKEN FROM THE WEB]

Friezes like this are found in many Mithraeum Cave-Temples throughout the old Roman World and Germany. Since astrology figured prominently in Mithraic Rituals, some consider this act, the Triumph of Mithras, as symbolically marking the end of the Age of Taurus. That event would have occurred sometime around 2300 BC, though. Which was a few hundred years before Abraham and Sodom and Gomorrah, -- and some two thousand years before the height of the Roman Empire. In fact, the primogenitor civilization of Sumer was still flourishing around that time.

However, others see it as marking the end of Dionysian irrationality and the beginning of Apollonian reason. Mithras was identified with Sol Invictus by the Roman Soldiery and Apollo was often indistinguishable from Helios so, given the timeline, this interpretation probably makes some degree of sense. By the way, the Age of Aries the Ram supposedly gave way to the Age of Pisces the Fishes around 200 BC, which means it's been the Age of Aquarius since roughly 1990.

In the PHANTACEA Mythos, Thrygragos Varuna Mithras more of a Uranus-Kronos-Zeus type than a heroic Bull Slayer. The image on the right is therefore more reminiscent of recurring deviant, (often Taurus) Chrysaor Attis than of his Great God Father Mithras.

Cruel Plathon, the Bull of Mithras, was the monster 'slain' by Attis throughout the Outer Earth era known as the Goddess Culture (roughly 2000 - 1500 BC). During that time Plathon served Divine Coueranna (Kore-Concord), Mithras's by then supplanted 'mate-for-life', his Boss Cow during the Age of Taurus.

The mutable Cross of Mithras was one of the three Thrygragos Talismans. Successions of Chrysaor Attis had them until Thrygragon -- Mithramas Day, 4376 YD. They were in the possession of Magister Joseph Mandam in 1938. OMP (Obadiah Melvin or Old Man Power) wore it as a ceremonial sword that he never used and, like the Mask of Byron and the Cloak of Lazareme, he is driven to smash it apart during December 1980.

Original artwork by Ian Fry, late 1980s, text and colour-added by Jim McPherson, 2007Xuthros Hor Causes the Genesea

Amemp Tut, the eighth patriarch of Golden Age Humankind, died in the same year as the Genesea (the Great Flood of Genesis). He did not die in it, though, -- and his grandson, Xuthros Hor, the tenth patriarch did not mourn his passing.

NOTE 1: In this digitally dicked, Ian Fry drawing, taken from the 1990 graphic novel ("Forever & 40 Days - The Genesis of PHANTACEA", which can stiil be ordered), Xuthros Hor exclaims: "Let the skies burst forth! Let the matchless fury of the ocean waves rise up! Flood over this cursed planet! Wash the Earth clean of devas and all that is evil!"

The text beneath the image reads: "The rain came down in mighty torrents, and the subterranean waters burst forth upon the earth for forty days and nights, and the water covered the earth for 150 days."

NOTE 2: There's a section-by-section overview of the graphic novel online. This image is found here whereas a summary of the sequence it came from is here. There's a reference to the conjuration Xuthros Hor uses in an Autumn 2007 entry of Serendipity Now.

NOTE 3: In "The War of the Apocalyptics", a phantacea mosaic novel published in the late Fall of 2009, Sea Goddess (Thalassa D'Angelo) uses a very similar sounding conjuration. As per here, she does so while 'hearing' far-sent instructions from a devil who believes, rightly or wrongly, that both Sea Stuff and Airhead are her fourth generational offspring.

"LET THE SKIES BURST FORTH. LET THE MATCHLESS FURY OF THE OCEAN WAVES RISE UP. FLOOD OVER THIS ACCURSED ISLE. WASH THE EARTH CLEAN OF THESE EVIL CREATURES!"

... from the third chapter of "The War of the Apocalyptics"

The Tomb of Agamemnon

In early April 1916, Rhea Sangati always Ararat contacted Celestine D'Angelo, the Celestial Superior of the Antediluvian Sisterhood of Anthea, and a prominent Athenan War Witch, Louise nee Riel St. Synne, via her Hellstones. It was time to test out their theory of the Trigon Triplets!

[INTERNAL SHOT OF THE TOMB OF AGAMEMNON, PHOTOGRAPH BY JIM McPHERSON, 1995]

Celeste Mannering, as Celestine was known on the Inner Earth, therefore took her little sister, Mnemosyne, to the Tomb of Agamemnon in Mycenae on the Peloponnesian Peninsula of Greece. From the antechambre inside the beehive-shaped Ghost House, she then took them to what became known as the Wishing Hell beneath Sedon's Peak on Big Shelter's Cattail Peninsula. Simultaneously, from an Anasazi Kiva in New Mexico, Louise brought her youngest of two daughters, Cybele, to the same place. (NOTE: the older one was Sophia. Shortly after the birth of their 'eldest', Anita, in 1921, she married a scandalously, forcibly retired priest, Raphael D'Angelo, Celestine, Dolores, and Memory's lone brother.)

From an obscure archaeological site somewhere in the Himalayas or elsewhere in Central Asia, Rhea did ditto. Her contribution to the pot, as it were, was a girl identically-aged, to the minute, as Memory and Cybele. Which meant she was on the eve of her seventh birthday.

And there was a pot there, -- a cauldron filled with molten Brainrock. If the child survived dipping in the boiling liquid, so went the theory at least, then she was a Great Goddess, an incarnation of one of the Trigregos Sisters. If they all survived, then Panharmonium had finally dawned.

[EXTERNAL SHOT OF THE TOMB OF AGAMEMNON, PHOTOGRAPH BY JIM McPHERSON, 1995]Rhea, who was actually Miracle Maenad (Heliosophos' Miracle Machine as humanized by the devil, Pyrame Silverstar, aka the Pauper Priestess), went first. But the girl died instantly. So it seemed at any rate. Celeste and Louise panicked, grabbed their seven year olds and fled back to the Outer Earth. It was only during the Summoning of 1920 that they learned that the Pauper had tricked them with an illusion. Rhea's girl had survived, had grown into the future Eden Nightingale Ryne. But, because they didn't dip Memory or Cybele in the cauldron at the right time, the Trigregos Sisters could not be brought back. Which meant they had to wait seven more years to determine if the Three Great Goddesses had been reincarnated due to the Summoning.

They weren't, or so it seems, -- but others may have been. Namely, the gods and goddesses, the demons and monsters, of Ancient Mythology. These were the Summoning Children; what Jesus Mandam, who was one of them, nicknamed supras or supranormals. Over forty are introduced and featured during the course of 'Heliodyssey' while a bunch of the girls may be just who the Blood Beast Prime, Count Molech, requires to sire his son on the Thirteenth.

One might be Cybele, Memory, and Celestine's niece, and Louise's granddaughter, Anita D'Angelo. Another could be Louise's grey baby, the mysterious, avian witch known as Sorciere. And a third one could be the daughter of Olympias nee Sangati, which would make her the real Rhea's granddaughter. Not that anyone knows there is such a person; not for sure. What a few do know though is that, if she does exist, chances are she was born on Christmas Day 1920, nine months after the Summoning.

The Tomb of Cecilia Metella

[EXTERNAL SHOT OF THE TOMB OF CECELIA METELLA IN ROME, PHOTOGRAPH BY JIM McPHERSON, 1996] [EXTERNAL SHOT OF THE TOMB OF CECELIA METELLA IN ROME, PHOTOGRAPH BY JIM McPHERSON, 1996]On the night of January 12, 1938, a Taurobolium Ceremony was held in the Tomb of Cecilia Metella on the old Appian Way in Rome. There, a bull was eviscerated; its blood and guts spilt into the pit or abaddon and over a Mithrant Nymphos or Griffin, a Bridegroom who was thereby initiated into the second level of the ancient mystery cult. The bull would have been provided by a new Leo or General, a fourth level Mithrant, and the ceremony supervised by representatives of the three highest levels of the Mithraic Brotherhood: a Persian or Magus, the Earth Magician that slew the bull, a Heliodromus or Sun-Runner, the Sky Magician/Messenger of the Gods, and a Pontiff or Father, one of the so-called Immortals who stood in for Mithras on Earth.

Also in attendance were dozens of masked men, Miles or Soldiers for the most part, other recent Bridegrooms, and likely some other Lions. The whole thing was witnessed by a cat, one Bast by name, who belonged to Claudia D'Angelo, Anita's middle sister (the youngest one then alive was Gloriella, of 1980's Damnation Brigade, who was not quite five yet).

Who were these Mithrants? What were they trying to accomplish? How did Memory of the Angels learn what Bast witnessed? For that matter, how did Bast get so far from home? It's all part of 'The Moloch Manoeuvres', -- but Count Molech is hardly the only one doing the manoeuvering. There are games within games going on and the players at one probably don't even realize they're pawns in another.

There may be no cure for aphantasia (defined as 'having a blind or absent mind's eye') but there certainly is for aphantacea ('a'='without', like the 'an' in 'anheroic')
