Logo reads Featured Story, prepared on PHOTOSHOP by Jim McPherson, 2002

“My, my, such language,” scolded Pyrame Silverstar.

As Tethys must have known, many devils called her Sedon’s Whore when she wasn’t within earshot – not that devils needed ears to hear anymore than they needed howsoever many or few eyes to see, noses to smell or mouths to speak.

“And in front of the little one too: Bad Gorgon, beastly Gorgon. But, to answer your question: Not me, I’m more the mourning sort.”

“Not me either, wee-the-pee daddy," said the Demon Child, unless she was a devil child. "Met my pet yet? I call her Stynx on account of she stinks almost as much you do, boohoo. She’s cleaner the wiener, though the hoe.”

“I’d rather meet your maker, Lorna. Then I could kill him!”

“You wish,” said Pyrame.

“Can’t I devolve him, mommy?” Trala asked.

“Into what? He’s already an ignoramus.”

“Mean, mommy. He’s too small to be a hippopotamus.”

-- from 'Pre-Theo: "THE CRUCIFIXION OF TERRIBLE TETHYS"', the first chapter of 'Feeling Theocidal'

Introductory Remarks

Greetings. Welcome or welcome back.

"Feeling Theocidal", the first all-prose novel featuring the PHANTACEA Mythos is now available. Ordering information can be found here and here.

To order any of the other PHANTACEA Mythos Print Publications that are still available, including returned copies of PHANTACEA #1, click here or here.

(If you're ordering from me, certified cheques or money orders only please. I decided not to incur the cost of trying to set up an online payment system since they seem to benefit the intermediary more so than the publisher.)

Next door is the usual Hestia Housekeeping subsection of 'pHpubs'.

Down below is a vastly expanded list of lynx to a number of typically idiosyncratic mini-essays and/or Character Likeness studies I've prepared over the years. It's only sort of alphabetical but, in the absence of a PHANTACEA-specific search engine it'll have to do for now.

Most of the selections illustrate some of the peculiar perspectives I've developed while writing the PHANTACEA Mythos. The rest are direct quotes from "Feeling Theocidal" or its immediate sequel "The 1000 Days of Disbelief", which I hope will come out in 2010.

Contact me at Feel free to ask any questions you might have regarding PHANTACEA. I'll do my best to answer them either directly or right here in 'pHpubs'.

Good looking masthead, eh.

Hestia Housekeeping amounts to the 'What's New' section of pHpubs. Consequently I always start it with a 'What's Old' link to where I put its previous update.

Now that that's done, we can get on with this edition's preview. So what is new in Summer 2009? Truth told, it's more a matter of why I haven't got around to putting up a new Web-Publisher's Commentary for more like a couple of years now.

The reason I say that is because I've put plenty of new material online since the last time I wrote a commentary. They're just not online here, in the PHANTACEA Mythos online, as I'm now referring to this website.

Some the new stuff can be found over in the 'Travels in my Pants' (TIMP) web pages. It's main menu page is here whereas the latest entries include Slothing around Costa Rica & Panama (2009), El Retorno del Maximon (2003) and the reappearance of the Ephesian Heads Stone (1996), an ancient denizen of pH-Webworld.

Much, much more in the way of new material -- new material specifically prepared for the PHANTACEA Mythos, I should emphasize -- can be found on

It's main menu is here. The latest photo essays are here and here whereas the webpage entirely dedicated to 'Feel Theo', the first PHANTACEA Mythos print publication since 1990's graphic novel, is here.

As for what's gone, try hitting here, here and here and see where you end up. It's all part of my ongoing effort to meld three websites. And why would I want to do that? Hey, I've got to have something to fill up Today's Topic.

Top of Page - Top of Hestia - Restart Preview - On to Topic

As if all the above wasn't enough, there's so much new material in Serendipity Now I had to invent some previously non-existent entry points. Lynx to four that contain graphics are down below but there are plenty more. Try out "Assassination by Asteroid", "Spooky, not Serendipitous" and "Saudi's Descendent?" for starters.

What there isn't is any more chapters of either the Volsung Variations or the Vampire Variations. And where there's no new chaps there's no new sins either.

Who knows, come next update, maybe I'll take yet another reread and pick them up where I left off. Then again, it's not as if anyone's complained about them not finishing yet so maybe I won't bother anytime soon.

Feedback encouraged. Oh and, lest we forget, as always, good reading.

Integrating Websites & Other Great Godly Goings-On

Remind me never to do this again.

The PHANTACEA Mythos online has been on the worldwide web in one form or another since 1996. At first I hand-coded everything, then I switched to a succession of programs, not all of which I can remember let alone still have. Finally, circa 2002, I settled on Macromedia's Dreamweaver, which is now owned by Adobe. (I recently bought the CS4 version of it to go along with a brand spanking new computer that's no doubt already obsolete.)

The point being, yawn, the coding's become an unsightly, but still surprisingly functional, mess.

So, after setting up jmcptimps and then over the course of the last year and more, I finally got around to returning here to my flagship website, pH-Webworld. My goal was to integrate the three sites.

Which is all well and fine, not to mention overdue. Except I made the mistake of trying to upgrade pH-Webworld such that it's more compliant with all this CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) stuff that's come into play since 2002, the last year I took an html (hyper-text markup language) course.

Put it this way, other than for Serendipity Now I haven't written anything new for over a month and, as below, I'm supposed to be working on prepping both "The War of the Apocalyptics" and "The 1000 Days of Disbelief" for print-publication ('War-Pox' this year {2009} and '1000 Daze' for early in the year thereafter.)

As for why I even started the process, well, I've only got so much space on this server so it makes sense to spread the wealth around, so to speak. By wealth I'm mostly referring to graphics. There's a great many of them and they take up most of my territorial allotment within this portion of Cyberia.

Plus, once they're up, I'm loathe to take any down. Since most are also my own shots, and this is my website, I don't see why I should either. (BTW, I particularly like this one. Ask me it's eminently worth a double-click. I like it so much, I did it twice.)

That said, I have to admit that 3 of the four graphics below aren't my shots and that parts of the fourth, the one I like so much, aren't either. However, such is the nature of the webpage to which they belong, the aforementioned Serendipity Now, that I don't really feel guilty about scanning them in or copying them off the Web.

I believe in giving credit where credit is due so, as much as possible, I acknowledge where I got the images in the mouse-overs. Since a couple of browsers I could name don't provide mouse-overs any more, I also try to link notes re them to the graphics I put online.

Even though, being devils, there's something decidedly ungodly about them, in terms of great godly goings-on there's been a fair amount of that as well. Not all of it's taken place in my head either.

Thrygragos Mithras, the Great God of Stacks of Stuff, is the focus of "Feeling Theocidal". With Devil Wind (Vayu Maelstrom) leading the way as per here, Bodiless Byron and his Primary Nucleoids occupy a ton of space in "The War of the Apocalyptics" whereas Thrygragos Lazareme, his Unities more so than him, dominate proceedings in "The 1000 Days of Disbelief".

Appearances proving deceptive, the Moloch Sedon doesn't have much to do in 'Feel Theo' except wait in bed for Pyrame Silverstar to show up in Grand Elysium along with her latest shell (who might be Ute Tethys, as also per here). He's more conspicuous, albeit most often by his absence, in '1000 Daze', though, but makes only a token appearance in 'War-Pox' and then only in a brief flashback foreboding section re the 4th generation Thanatoids of Lathakra.

As for the Dual Entities (Helios called Sophos the Wise and his Milady Memory), well, um, hey, they're definitely not in 'War-Pox', though they are on the moon. (With respect to either "Feeling Theocidal" and "The 1000 Days of Disbelief", definitely don't look here for any clarification of the well, um, hey, waffling in the previous sentence.)

At any rate, among the many sites I've spruced up include the section on PHANTACEA's Cornerstone Characters. You might want to avoid it, though, unless you're in the mood for spoilers.

If you've been scrolling through this page then you've already noticed another section I've not only spruced up but expanded mightily. That'd be the Essentials area of pHpubs. It's where the real work of website integration takes place and it's only going to get larger as time races by, as per usual much too fast.

As for the thumbnails, they're double-clickable, if that's a word. Except they don't open up a window containing a larger image of same; they open up a window containing a larger image of similar but different. Good clicking.

That'll do for now. Until the next time, be pHantacizing you. Oh, and in case you haven't done so already, here's a friendly reminder:

"Feeling Theocidal", the first ever, all-prose novel featuring Jim McPherson's PHANTACEA Mythos, can now be ordered. Kindly do so immediately!

  3. The mouse-over behind the graphic reads: "A circled X, part of the Antikythera Device found in Athens, scanned in from a magazine". I scanned it in from Atlantis Rising dated July/August 2009. I couldn't find any credit given for photo. The link takes you here. Return to image.
  4. The mouse-over behind the graphic reads: "What looks like a stegosaurus, shot taken at a temple in Cambodia, scanned in from a magazine". I scanned it in from Atlantis Rising dated July/August 2009. I couldn't find any credit given for photo. The link takes you here. Return to image.
  5. The mouse-over behind the graphic reads: "A collage of various Medusas, some spotted in Europe 2008, shots or scans by Jim McPherson". Clockwise from the top left hand corner are: Carvaggio, Rubens, a Venetian mask, more of the Rubens, a red/black Medusa taken from web, a Medusa shot in the Natural History Museum in London and one shot in a Lisbon train station. The link takes you here. Return to image.
  6. The background image in the Serendipity box is the All-Seeing Eye of Providence; I took it, in June of 2008, within the chapel of the highly recommended Quinta da Regaleira in Sintra, Portugal; for some reason the estate's guidebook calls it "The Flaming Triangle". There's a contemporaneous email here; in the same entry there's a double-click graphic that opens a window containing a collage that features not only this version of the eye but another one shot in Lisbon on the same trip. Return to image.
  7. The page background is a variant of the front cover for"Feeling Theocidal"; artwork by Verne Andru, 2008; it's been flipped horizontally, stripped of colour and then tinted; it can be better viewed from here or here;

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!
