About Myths Inscribed

A fantasy ezine unlike any other

Myths Inscribed is an online fantasy magazine created by members of the Mythic Scribes writing forum. Its purpose is to provide a venue for quality fantasy writing of all sorts. Submission to the magazine is open to all, not merely to members of Mythic Scribes, nor is any preference given to members. We hope that if there is more content from Mythic Scribes members, it is only because contributors to Myths Inscribed are attracted to and join the forum. Please see our Submission Guidelines, under the “Contact” tab,  if you are interested in contributing to the magazine.

The Mythic Team


Antonio del Drago

Editor-in-Chief

An author and professor who teaches philosophy and religious studies. His interests include fencing, graphic design, and building online communities. His favorite authors include J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, Alexandre Dumas, James Fenimore Cooper, Robert E. Howard, J. K. Rowling, and Patrick Rothfuss.

Kassan Warrad

Managing Editor

 

The creator of the Call of Heroes universe and an aspiring author. Other interests include NFL (Go Bucs!), playing football, fitness, movies, tabletop RPGs, video games and daydreaming. He favors the story where the victorious side is the one that bled the least. He is a firm believer that happy endings often destroy a story. Characters should fear dying just as any orc or hapless guard. Better yet, hapless guards shouldn’t be so hapless. Favorite fantasy authors are Steven Erikson, Glen Cook, Joe Abercrombie, Jacqueline Carey, Robert Jordan, Stephen Donaldson and Robert E. Howard.

Camila Vielmond

Art Director
vielmond.com.br

A full time freelance illustrator and concept artist specializing in fantasy art. When not creating art for books and games, working on her skills or her own projects she takes on unlikely hobbies that involve creating things like writing bad stories, writing bad code or literally building things. Sometimes she attempts to reduce her big “to-play” games list or her even bigger “to-read” list.

Her favourite fantasy authors include Garth Nix, George R. R. Martin, Joe Abercrombie, J. R. R. Tolkien and J. K. Rowling.

Derek Bowen

Managing Editor

A freelance writer, editor and proofreader—or, as he likes to put it, he’s “creatively unemployed.” He has degrees in Philosophy, English, and Linguistics, has taught all of them, and would go back for more if he could afford to. He would have gone into astrophysics were his math skills any better. He might have gone into law had he known back when how much fun it is. He isn’t hypocritical enough for advertising or politics; for similar reasons, he’s avoided the lucrative field of establishing one’s own religion. Espionage remains a remote option. His interests are so broad it would be easier to summarize what he is not interested in… he’ll have to get back to you on that. He reads anything that does not run fast enough, including dictionaries, legal filings, floor plans, product labels and television commercial disclaimers. If it happens to be in a language he can’t read, he’ll learn it. If it happens to be in a language no one can read, he’ll work on it. He would very much like to see more people read more poetry, as he feels they’re missing out on a major aspect of language artistry by avoiding it. Favorite fantasy authors include Roger Zelazny, Steven Brust, Glen Cook, Karl Edward Wagner, Gene Wolfe, Samuel R. Delany, H. P. Lovecraft and J. R. R. Tolkien.

Robert MacAnthony

Editorial Board

An editor and Intellectual Property Attorney. Despite his affiliation with the legal profession, claims that he was not born but rather spawned during a primeval ceremony to Nyarlathotep remain unproven. He enjoys reading, writing, playing basketball, and RPGs (tabletop and computer). Favorite authors include Mervyn Peake, Guy Gavriel Kay, H. P. Lovecraft, Fritz Leiber, Glen Cook, Steven Erikson, Steven Brust, Philip K. Dick, Gene Wolfe, Joe Abercrombie, and James P. Blaylock.

T. Reaver

Editorial Board

A retired Army sniper who currently works as a field supervisor for an international security firm. He is an avid reader and writer of fantasy, science and military fiction. During his very limited free time he enjoys writing, hiking, camping, hunting and spending time with his family and friends. His favorite authors include J. R. R. Tolkien, Frank Herbert, Robert A. Heinlein, Terry Brooks, R. A. Salvatore, Margaret Weis, Tracy Hickman, John Haley, R. Scott Kimsey and Philip Overby.
