to a hidden world that lurks beneath mundane notice, of occult rites and arcane sciences, of relics and divinations, of primeval spirits whose loyalties may be won with the lure of a wand and the threat of a knife.
When a hijacked war machina turns on the crowd at a meeting of the Auctoritas Magicae, prodigy apprentice Jules Nimri deploys his newly-developed “combat alchemy” to bring down the automaton—but only after the construct has slaughtered dozens. In the aftermath of the tragedy, accusations fly, rekindling an ancient interfaction feud that could plunge the arcane world into war. SEE MORE
FORM & VOID is a switchblade-and-sorcery web fiction multiverse that includes The Nullweaver Cycle series of novels and The Dread Eclipse weekly web serial. Both series feature transgender protagonists, a queer supporting cast, apocalyptic themes, and dark urban fantasy aesthetics inspired by action-adventure anime series like Fate/Zero, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Devilman Crybaby, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, and Arcane: League of Legends.
Those Who Create and Destroy: Part I, from Book 1 of The Nullweaver Cycle, is free to read now in its entirety, and new chapters of Part II are released twice weekly on Mondays and Fridays. (Download the e-book of Part I.)
The Dread Eclipse weekly web serial is on a brief hiatus while we focus on finishing Part III of Those Who Create and Destroy, but the first eighteen episodes are free to read online, with new episodes returning in early 2023. (Download the e-book of all episodes to date.)
Both series deal frankly and often with potentially triggering subject matter. Content warnings are provided for the benefit of readers with sensitivities.
Early releases of completed manuscripts from The Nullweaver Cycle, behind-the-scenes content, rough draft excerpts/cut scenes from all our series, and exclusive short and serial fiction set in the FORM & VOID multiverse are available to our Patreon supporters at all subscription levels.
