    Omir: warrior, thinker, a man of both action and reflection, a monarch who never thought of himself as ruler of Anaquist but more of a protector of its people. Plus, the Autumn Plot!

    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.

    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.
