And it’s still kinda sinking in.

So I’ve done assisted self-publishing before, which means that if you dig hard enough into the bowels of the internet¬†you’ll find troubled 20-year-old Joe’s work sitting around somewhere (and troubled 16-year-old Joe’s fanfiction if you’re really diligent). But this is a real story I’m actually pretty proud of that went through an actual editing process for a real anthology that was successfully crowdfunded in a week or so.

Yes, it’s true and it’s out: The End Of Nine Worlds, my short story about the Norse Ragnarok myth, has been released alongside art and fifteen other stories about myths and legends from all over the world in the Arcanum anthology! Now, with the permission and blessing of the Arcanum team I get to share it with everyone FOR FUCKING FREE in PDF form!

There are physical books in limited supply but I don’t have word on how that will work, aside from the fact that profits will go to (I am 99% sure) We Need Diverse Books.

Okay, enough of my chattering. You can find The End Of Nine Worlds along with the rest of the stories here, so give them a read:

The Arcanum: Mythology of the Ancient World

Thanks so much for the support over time and look out for more from me in the future!


I’m being published in the Arcanum compilation!

Ohey here’s Arcanum, it’s a compilation of retold myths and legends from around the world that I contributed to (my myth is Ragnarok, which is all sorts of fitting). Getting it into physical form is going to take money, though, and there’s a kickstarter to help make that happen. So please give a bit if you have a bit to spare, and take a look at the contributor bonuses!

I’d appreciate anything y’all can do to help, even just sharing this post if you can’t contribute financially is still a ton of help! The link to the kickstarter and a short trailer for another story in the compilation is above¬†too!
