Among the Mythos

AMONG THE MYTHOS is a science-fantasy series starring runaway Fey princes, alien Earths, parallel worlds, ancient warriors, and know-it-all brats.

Great Wheel

The Great Wheel the conventionally accepted method of organization for all magical and non-magical sentient inhabitants of planet Earth.

Magic

Humans can be very slow at ‘getting’ things, but perhaps that only makes sense. After all, they alone among the sentient races do not have the ability to use magic. But why is this? What IS magic?

Mythos

The Mythos refers to six of the Seven Peoples of the Earth, i.e. the Sun and the Darkness, the Guardians and the Dream, and the Fey and the Kin.

Science-Fantasy

Science-fantasy is a sub-genre of speculative fiction that combines elements from both science-fiction and fantasy.

Seven Peoples

The Seven Peoples of the Earth are the seven identifying categories applied to most sentient beings in the world.

Speculative Fiction

Speculative fiction is a broad genre of fiction with any supernatural, fantastical, or futuristic elements.

Stolen

The Stolen are those among the Mythos whose magic has been diverted by the Throne or the Scepter.

Sundered Ones

Powerful but broken creatures, enslaved to keep mankind alive in a flooded world.

The Darkness

The Darkness include any magical beings with a primary drive to devour or collect.

The Dream

The Dream include any people who live between dimensions and subsist on the essence of dreams of others.

The Ever-Dying

The Ever-Dying are humans, so-called because – from the viewpoint of magical beings – they’re dying from the moment they’re born.

The Fey

Yes. “Fey” is the correct spelling. They use it because while they are fae, and also fay, they are in fact fey, so they are constantly starving to death.

The Guardians

Guardians are any magical beings with the primary drive to protect or guard. Unfortunately, they’re all a little crazy.

The Kin

Kin, for the most part, refers to human wizards – that is, humans with something else in them allowing them to do magic.  

The Sun

The Sun include any magical beings with a primary drive and ability to heal.
