Ancient Borea, or The Palæoboreanic World, refers to a period of Mediterranean history between c. 400,000 and 300,000 B.C.E.
Ancient Borea, or rather the mythological world ellucidated in The Palæoboreanica (the primary source of ancient Borean mythology) is a setting I created for The Sovereignty Cycle, with the intention of replacing the alternate history “place holder” setting I used when I began writing the first story of that series.
“The Sovereignty Cycle” is a series of novels I was writing from 2000 C.E. to 2013 C.E. (which I plan to finish now that I’ve got the files off of the crashed hard-drive I had the documents stored on). For more information, see Fiction & Worldbuilding: The Sovereignty Cycle.
Inspirations included The Epic of Gilgamesh, Homer’s Illiad & Odyssey, Hesiod’s Theogeny, the works of Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Virgil, Horace, and Ovid, Beowulf, the Poetic Edda, Snorri Sturluson’s Prose Edda, Jacobus da Varagine’s Golden Legend, Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, James Frazer’s The Golden Bough, and Eric Rücker Eddison’s The Worm Ouroboros.

Red the Blue Devil
A religious phantasy set in the mythical antediluvian world (i.e., our world prior to the Noachian deluge) of Abrahamic mythology.
Inspired by the works of Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, and H. P. Lovecraft, classic B-grade horror movies like 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, Twin Peaks, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, The X-Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Eerie, Indiana, this paranormal fantasy took place in the small town of Oddfellows, Washington. I didn’t think of a name for the titular paranormal investigation group itself until relatively late in the creation process, and had originally titled their first adventure simply as “Oddfellows”, but ended up naming the investigation team “The Nocturnals” after a paranormal investigation group I was a part of from 2000-2002 or so, and began working on a prequel (or would it be an interquel, since the first adventure still hadn’t been completed yet?).
