Tired of endless reboots, rehashings, and the rampant unoriginality in fiction lately? True creativity is hard to come by! That’s why it’s vital to support independent artists doing truly original things!
Fiction and worldbuilding was my first artform, with
drawing being my first and favorite medium. In fact, I first taught myself to draw at age 1 because I wanted to tell stories and knew not yet how to read or write.
Included here are some of my more well-developed phantasy worlds.
— or The Palæoboreanic World, refers to a period of Mediterranean history between c. 400,000 and 300,000 B.C.E. The ancient Boreans, or Ancient Borea (1999) Palæoboreanic peoples as they are more properly known, were not anatomically modern Homo sapiens sapiens, but rather a species only slightly more closely related to us than the Neanderthals. They were called Homo borealis, or Homo sapiens borealis, depending upon whether you prefer to split up or lump together the more recent hominid species. They were once the evolutionary frontrunners of our family tree, acheiving a quasi-medieval level of technology before finally going extinct. We are what evolved to replace them.
— the adventures of a group of paranormal investigators living in Oddfellows, Washington. Inspired by the works of Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, and H. P. Lovecraft, classic B-grade horror movies like The Nocturnals (2001) Evil Dead II and Return of the Living Dead, more mainstream films like Poltergeist and Gremlins, children’s books like R. L. Stine’s Fear Street and Goosebumps, and television shows like Scooby Doo, Tales from the Dark Side, Twin Peaks, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, The X-Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Eerie, Indiana.
The Antediluvian Epoch (1996) — a religious phantasy set in the mythical antediluvian world (i.e., our world prior to the Noachian deluge) of Abrahamic mythology.

Science Fiction Settings
Included here are some of my more well-developed science fiction worlds.
— a Doylean “Lost World” setting for an intended audience that enjoyed programs like Metazoids (1998) Pokémon and Digimon. The setting is populated by creatures who resemble animals, fungi, and plants, but actually represent a 4 th, “lost” kingdom of multicellular macro-organisms, some of whom show evidence of genomic infiltration by extraterrestrials.
— A team of superheroines known as The Space Bunnies travel the universe fighting space evil. Inspirations included The Spacebunnies (1999) Duck Dodgers in the 24½th Century (1953), Lost in Space (1965), Star Trek (1966), Space Ghost (1966) and The Herculoids (1967), Heavy Metal (1981), Airplane II: The Sequel (1982), Howard the Duck (1986), Spaceballs (1987), Amazon Women on the Moon (1987), Felix the Cat: The Movie (1988), and, to a lesser extent, more recent works like Earthworm Jim (1994), Space Truckers (1996), The 5 (1997), th Element Starship Troopers (1997), and Heavy Metal 2000 (2000), among others.
The primary aesthetic is intended to be retrofuturism, more specifically favoring a combination of
atompunk and vaporwave. However, the intention was for the galaxy to accomodate a wide variety of futuristic aesthetics, with ample cyberpunk ( à la 1982’s Blade Runner and 1999’s The Matrix) and cyberprep ( à la 1987’s Star Trek: The Next Generation, 1993’s Demolition Man, 1995’s Star Trek: Voyager, and 1999’s Bicentennial Man), plenty of used future ( à la 1977’s Star Wars), and even some pockets of techno-medievalism ( à la 1997’s Event Horizon), among others.
— In a future where humans have colonized the Solar system and have developed near-FTL technology, the Martians declare their independence from Earth and the first Solar Civil War breaks out.
Solar Civil War (1997)
Included here are some of my more well-developed superhero settings.
M-Squad: Mutant Squadron (1993) — a team of genetically augmented super-humans fight wave after wave of genetic abomination created by the evil Genesyn Corporation.
