Philip Lee McCall II is owner and founder of MYTHIX STUDIOS, an independent publisher that publishes the growing catalog of PLMII’s works. The author has written in the following genres; Fantasy, Space Opera, Paranormal, Mythology and Weird West. In 2014, the author launched “YARN” and “FLUX-FICTION” (2) ongoing Fantasy anthologies. PLMII has plans to release his first graphic anthology sometime in 2015. He is also writing a comic for “Bloody Pulp Magazine” to be released in the summer of 2014.
Hailed by many as “The King of Fantasy”, Philip Lee McCall II or “PLMII” started his rise to fame with “The Imaginist”, in 2005. “The Imaginist” is a reinterpretation of poetic verse for the genres of fantasy and science fiction. PLMII’s fantastically inspired poetry made the form accessible to many who had never read poetry before or considered it a dead art form. The author’s poetic work has been used in educational programs throughout the southeast by innovative teachers looking to bring the poetic form to a whole new generation.
In 2003, Philip was a “Creative Writing” student of the late A.C. “Anne” Crispin. His mentor marveled at PLMII’s creative abilities and told him not to give up writing and to pursue it with great passion. Since studying with Ms. Crispin, PLMII has been on a creative writing journey that led to the creation of his own creative writing theory the “3 Aspects of Creative Writing”. PLMII has taught this theory at conventions for over (2) years with great reception from aspiring writers. PLMII has inspired many new writers to embark on their own indie publishing journeys.
PLMII’s fan base reaches beyond the United States extending into Europe, South America, Canada and most recently Asia. The author is both amazed and thankful that his work has touched so many people from all walks of life. He often states that his success is measured by the faithfulness and persistence of his fans to keep him writing.
The author lives quietly with his muses, Frances, his wife and his daughter Olivia Lee. They share their magical home in Florida with two Rat Terriers named Merlin and Gypsy.
PLMII’s books cane be purchased at all fine booksellers including Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com. Fans can meet with the author, or attend one of his writing panels at the many conventions he attends across the southeastern United States.
on April 26, 2013 :
One of the things that stuck out to me was the liberal use of various characters from history and mythology. Characters and people like Varney the Vampire and Nicolas Flemal and his Philosopher’s Stone gave the story a comfortability for me and helped to pull me in. Even the main character, Dr. Daedalus, should be familiar to history/mythology fans.
My only issue is I would’ve liked to see the story become deeper. While a quick read, I wouldn’t mind it being a four hundred page novel, but that’s my own feeling. All in all, I really enjoyed it and recommend it for any fantasy fan looking for a new take on the genre.
