What is Mythania?

The world you are about to discover is a fantastical realm of steam, steel, and sorcery—a world where juggernaut war machines ravage the landscape, where stupendous air fleets dominate the skies, where astral mages battle enchanted automatons, and where the march of progress is moved as much by gears of iron as it is by the weaving of spells.

I’m Mark William Chase, creator and author of the Mythania® universe. Mythania has been a project in the works for a very long time; it is my hope that this web site will give both fantasy readers and steampunk enthusiasts the opportunity to explore this unique setting, where steam-age technology and potent magic intermingle under the backdrop of war, conflict, and adventure.

He can occasionally be found attending science fictions conventions in his ever-accumulating steampunk attire.
