Writing News

 My short story 'Lupa di Roma' has been published by Title Goes Here Magazine in their October Web Edition (1.10).
The web editions are free to read so I encourage you to go and have a look.

I am very happy about this, and also very pleased with the way the story was described in the editorial. I doubt any description I'd written would have sounded nearly as impressive.
Apparently I've written Mythpunk. I didn't mean to, but as the story is based on the Roman foundation legend I guess it fits the subgenre.


  1. Congratulations on getting your story published! I thoroughly enjoyed it and thought it was a great take on Rome's foundation myth.

    I also had no idea mythpunk existed, so thanks for informing me. The more you know...

  2. Mythpunk sounds epic. Yes, epic. It must be investigated further. Very clever idea - never seen any approach to Roman myth that uses animals to interact with gods. A pity they chose that font for the release - my eyes not ache - but a good read nonetheless!

  3. Thanks guys, glad you liked it. :)
    Mythpunk is a fairly new subgenre (though obviously the content riffs off very old themes). I only heard of it in the last 18 months, which is why I didn't realise I'd written it as I first wrote the original this story several years ago.
