Julia Agrippina Banner

New Sheep Might Fly episode update! Listen now on iTunes (or your own favourite podcast app). You can stream, download & follow Sheep Might Fly on Podbean.

Our current serial is “Julia Agrippina’s Secret Family Bestiary” from my Twelve Planets collection Love and Romanpunk, a story suite about a universe where the Ancient Romans fought (and occasionally married) outlandish magical creatures, some of which survived to the present day and beyond. You can get a copy of the whole book over at the Twelfth Planet Press website.

“Agrippina” is a story about sex, death, domestic violence, emotional abuse, the erasure of women in history, and manticores. It features some surprising facts about Roman Emperors, only some of which are made up.

PART FIVE: Sphynx, Triton, Vampire
