The Fictosphere was started in 2013 as a fiction collaboration between Jeffrey Holloway, Randall Malus, and Mike Podgor. Each contributed stories and characters to a multiverse of fiction, primarily emerging as novellas and comics with some dabbling in video and podcasts. While creating and promoting our own work remains at the forefront of Fictosphere Entertainment’s mission, our own love of unreal worlds has spurred us towards making the Fictosphere a celebration of all works of fiction and not just our own. We hope you enjoy our meditations on films, video games, books, television, and whatever else might pop into our heads as well as our continued efforts to bring you new stories, comics, video games, and other forms of entertainment.
Meet Jeffrey Holloway, a charter member in the fraternity of dreamers. He has not been drawing and writing for his entire remembered life. Instead he watched a lot of movies and read books and comic books. He’s an anachronism, like a ghost from another time. And his life’s ambition is to merely watch more and read more. He is conspired against by a world full of tongue-cluckers and the unrelenting hands of a clock. But he’s a revolutionary of a different calibre. He has revolted. Resisted. Fought. Held fast. Maintained. Join him as writes about movies and other odd topics of interest seemingly only to him.
Randall Q. Malus inherited his love of art, music, film, literature, science, technology, history, and true crime from his parents, grandparents, and extended family–as well as his classically liberal attitude. The right people will hold that against him. He’s had a vague online presence since 1997 (under his pseudonyms Ethan Crane and Roger Hammersmith) and would encourage you to follow him on social media if he were not over 30 and actually used social media. At least you can enjoy his work at The Fictosphere, though, so that’s something. Pronouns: He/him.
Lord Mýk (also known as Mike Podgor) has been drawing and writing for his entire remembered life, most of which he’s also spent immersing himself in narratives geared towards fantastic worlds and non-human creatures. This quest has led him to plumb the depths of terrible media (including, but by no means limited to, movies, video games, television shows, and comic books) which he believes has led him to gain a greater appreciation for things that are at least competent. He has recently adopted the name Mikenificent in an effort to enhance his powers, though whether or not it’s worked has yet to be seen. He is an actual lord.
Trevor Thomson is an aspiring writer from Abilene (TX) looking to put himself out there and perhaps forge a career path, if not a lasting hobby. He has dabbled in overly long Facebook diatribes (and a clunky fan-fic or two) and holds an Associate’s Degree in English from Cisco College.
