    Episode 3 of The World Below the War in the Heavens podcast examines one of the most extraordinary figures in the entire history of this remarkable place: Ucantha Anaquist. Buccaneer, adventurer, entrepreneur, leader, military genius, architect nonpareil, visionary, exploiter, arch-manipulator and founder of the richest, most powerful realm in the entire World Below the War in the Heavens. She’s the stuff of a thousand stories, countless ballads, quite a few sculptures and even an opera or two. Can we separate the woman from the legend? Or is it worth bothering since the legends are so juicy, so wildly romantic that they don’t just make the heart beat a little faster, you might just need to keep a fan or two handy, in case of imminent swooning.

    Episode 2 of my ‘The World Below the War in the Heavens’ podcast is live now, and things are getting even juicier as I delve into the history of the ancient realm of Anaquist, which is full of strife, betrayals, false alliances, glorious triumphs, dazzling artistic achievements, humane advances, dark treachery, petty personal vendettas and extraordinary magical phenomena.

    Cool.

    After the teaser/preview of a few weeks ago, here’s the true first episode of my brand new podcast, The World Below the War in the Heavens where we dive into this imaginary land of magic and adventure and explore its wonders. Enjoy!

  • May31st

    I’ve finally made public a two minute sneak preview of a project I’ve been working on for some time: I’m writing a fantasy epic and complementing it with a podcast that explores the world I’ve created. The podcast will delve into the history, the geography, the culture, the politics, the arts and the backgrounds of the multifarious characters in my story. It’s a chance to expand the narrative outside the covers, to add depth and complexity to what is already a fascinating world of magic and adventure, a world where people live, love and strive while in the heavens above an eternal battle goes on between gods and demons – a struggle that sometimes results in the detritus of war falling to the land beneath, with far-reaching consequences.

    The World Below the War in the Heavens is a story of intrigue, betrayal, alliances, romance, lost hope and fast friendships all played out in a world that is an absorbing character in its own right. Listen to the preview below, and keep an eye out for subsequent podcast episodes, available in all the usual places.
