Those who’re into the gothic beauty of Storm Constantine’s creations may well recall the world of the Wraeththu with great fondness. Constantine was initially responsible for two trilogies, The Wraeththu Chronicles and The Wraeththu Histories, which were pretty much required reading among lovers of dark fantasy. Subsequently Constantine has gone on to release other titles in the same setting, but has also breathed new life into her mythos by opening it to select authors, of which ES Wynn is one. ...more

I recently won the drawing for E.S. Wynn's WHISPERS OF A WORLD THAT WAS. I entered the giveaway because 1) The cover was pretty tight and 2) the synopsis kind of made this sound like MAD MAX meets Lovecraftian monsters. I was certainly a bit sketchy on the details and did note that this belongs to something called the Wraeththu Mythos, but had no idea what that meant and since this is a standalone title, I decided to give it a shot. So to be perfectly clear, I received a print copy for free from ...more

Whispers of the World That Was by E S Wynn

Whispers of the World That Was by E S Wynn is set within Storm Constantine's world of the Wraeththu Mythos.

For those new to the mythos, a handy introduction by Constantine sets the scene.

It's years since the old world order failed. After the credit crunch and power outages were over, disease, floods a

I received this book in a giveaway on Goodreads. I should have checked it about a bit more before I entered. This book is not my type of book. The author is a really good writer. Their descriptions of the land and people are great. I didn't really like the book because it did not have a woman character at all. I guess the author thought it would be a better world without them. This is just my opinion. I hope our world never turns out like the author's. Lol Thanks E.S. Wynn.
