The Sibyl's Urn

Welcome to a mythological dream time in which nothing quite makes sense, yet everything has a logic of its own. Powerful goddesses linger behind curtains--one brushes her fingertips over your eyes, laden with an opiate like bee pollen on a summer's day. This is a fantasy, pieced together by late lamplight from author notes and studies of ancient Rome. Odd spirits keep knocking the inkwell over... More

About John Argo

John Argo has created a vast, sprawling SF universe of imaginative novels and stories called Empire of Time (EOT. Everything is at stake, and time traveling agents are at work up and down stream (time), observing and tweaking carefully to save the future--the fate of humankind and the universe is at stake, in the grand scheme that must never be forgotten. In the minor key, each novel offers gripping action with compelling characters, often spiced up with an urgent romantic subplot.

This is a future history in the grand tradition of Cordwainer Smith (Norstrilia), Isaac Asimov (Foundation), Frank Herbert (Dune), and other masters of the form. Fifty years in process, and still in the making, this mind boggling panorama of infinite universes and time without end already includes over a dozen novels that serve as pinholes to peer into realms beyond comprehension.

John Argo, from his home base in San Diego, continues to spin pieces of a vast mosaic that will soon coalesce into an astonishing entirety with a subseries titled Jornade: Chronicles of Metrado. Time traveling monks, military priestesses, female popes of the 38th Century--the innovations are boundless. Metrado journeys back in time to report to the Triune Holy Office uptime about such adepts as Nostradamus, Leonardo da Vinci, Homer, and others who work for HM Sacred Service. Stay tuned.

John Argo in 1996 became the first author/publisher to publish entire (full length novel) proprietary (not public domain) digital books on line for download. These included the texts of This Shoal of Space and Pioneers (SF) and Neon Blue (suspense), innovatively released in weekly serial chapters to readers around the world, who sent thanks and kudos.
