Welcome to Lytherus


Welcome to Lytherus, your new hub for everything science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Yes, we mean everything. We are geeks and consumers of all walks of life who enjoy reading, reviewing, discussing, and theorizing. Books? We read ‘em. Video games? Hardcore gamers. Movies? Been watching since we were born! Zombies? RUN!

Lytherus was founded as a response to the lack of quality scifi/fantasy/horror blogs on the ‘net catering to true fans of the wildly popular cult genres. While multiple brilliant web destinations cater to specific genres and fringe content, no blog or news resource has truly managed to package it all together into an enjoyable, fun-to-read experience. We’re here to fill that void.

Lytherus aims to provide news, reviews, editorials, and guest contributions ranging from the familiar to the bizarre. Our dedicated staff of fans, consumers, industry insiders, and true “geeks” will discuss any topic that appeals to us and our visitors. We will also frequently feature articles written by guest contributors from the various industries, including (but never limited to) authors, editors, screenplay writers, directors, game developers, viral marketers, industry “insiders”, and more. You’ll soon learn to expect the unexpected from Lytherus, and it’s exactly that which puts us above and beyond those other guys.

We have a fantastic staff of contributors ranging from consumers to authors to industry veterans, all passionate about bringing news, reviews, and information to our visitors on a regular basis. Our fantastic staff includes:

  • Mike Macauley: founder of Shurtugal.com and author of The Inheritance Almanac
  • Lauren Zurchin: book enthusiast and up-and-coming author
  • Jackie Krah: comic book extraordinaire
  • Shaun Hilton: video game, movie, and TV wiz
  • Bryce Hilton: life-long gamer and anime/manga mastermind
  • Eldon Thompson: author of the acclaimed The Legend of Asahiel book series
  • Nick Braccia: host of the Transmedia Talk podcast and viral marketing campaign master
  • Kaleb Nation: Youtube personality, author of the Bran Hambric book series

We will be adding several new contributors to our team over the next few weeks!

Our staff are already hard at work reviewing and recommending dozens of titles for the website, in addition to composing columns, editorials, and crawling the web for the latest breaking news. You can expect instant coverage of your favorite titles, genres, and content types starting today!

Most important to us are our visitors. We want to know what you think! Please feel free to leave your feedback, suggestions, and questions in the comments below. If you’d prefer a more private way to contact us, please feel free to do so using the contact form!

So what are you waiting for? Plug in to the Lytherus machine and begin consuming, chief!
