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.

- Fallen Book1: Separation
on Jan. 14, 2013
The author's grasp of African mythology is exceptional and his mixing of it with a modern setting is quite a joy to watch unfold. The story embarks upon a dark journey of self-discovery and prepares us for what will be an ultimate showdown at the book's end. I was rather surprised by the twist at the end of the story and did not expect the outcome. There is a deep change to the protagonist and I found its direction to be a bold move on the author's part.
"Fallen" as a book holds its own in a place where stories can often be overdone. Though the prose portrays itself sometimes as an edgy graphic novel, it does not distract the reader from the simple fact, that the author is very serious about giving you an engaging tale. There are some grammatical issues that arise in the manuscript but they do not distract from the story as a whole.
I was satisfied by the read of this book, though I wished, that it was a bit longer and provided more opportunity for me to connect with not only the characters but the wonderful mythology and story created here. While the pacing did keep my attention, I sometimes felt, that a lot of exposition was being delivered quickly and if not for my love of mythology in general, I may have stumbled a bit through the tale.
The only part of this book that rubbed me the wrong way was the author's choice of putting a mythological reference right in the book's beginning. After reading the book it almost seemed to be unnecessary, because the author does a fine job of explaining his mythos as the tale builds.
I would recommend this book to lover's of mythology and those who wish to read a story with great thought put behind its creation. It is more than obvious that the author has a passion for his subject matter and the story he has created here. This story invokes such a strong presence and really makes you feel its grittiness and otherworldly elements that you can't help but want to see the next chapter in Alade's tale. A story I am hoping the author is hard at work on and completing very soon. This is one great indie book that deserves a look by fantasy fans that are looking for a story with a different flair and a mythology that has not be redone, over and over again.
