About

I've been creating the world of Almea for over forty years. By now it includes insanely detailed histories, languages, and religions, and one completed novel. Up till now, time in Almea has stopped at ‘the present’, the year 3480, corresponding to the beginnings of the Steam Age.

This project is to detail 400 more years of Almean history. It takes Almea into the modern era and beyond— railroads, subways, oil, cameras, tanks, and finally spaceflight. The goal will be a companion volume to the Historical Atlas of Almea, though more encyclopedic.

I have an outline of this history, and I think it's fun in itself, and contains a few surprises.  It will be worked out in detail, including ‘future’ forms of the major languages plus new ones from the continent of Lebiscuri. As archeology is now possible on Almea, there are some reevaluations of older periods, especially the iliu-ktuvok wars. This will undoubtedly take years to finish.

Your support will enable me to focus on this and other writing projects.  (E.g., I have to finish my Ancient Middle East book.) You will get a first look at many things and chances to peer into the creative process.

An intro video is coming soon— the sound isn't done.
