Episode 05 – Michael Dibaggio – Ascension Epoch

Mike Dibaggio has been trying something a bit different with his books. He writes superhero stories set in his own unique world. This world combines elements from many great fantasy stories – War of the World by HG Wells being the main basis.

He has combined these stories into his own unique universe and even invites others to share in that universe and write stories in it.

He works with his wife (who does the art) and has just started a companion magazine.

You can find Mike at: https://www.ascensionepoch.com/ where you can register to get a free story.

He is on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/Michael-DiBaggio/e/B00JX865L8

He also runs: https://www.heroicadventurefiction.com which contains many other stories set in his world.

Four stories set in his ascesion epoch universe – these are about the martian war (which was started in HG Wells War of the Worlds)
This is Mike’s own superhero group. Still based in the same universe, just a different era.

All right. Well, I appreciate this. It’s good to talk to you. I mean, you probably wouldn’t even recognize my face. It’s been like, three years since. Yeah, it’s been a while. Yeah, yeah. But so let’s just get started. Feel free. If you have anything you want to jump in and say, just tell us a little bit about who you are, where you’re from a bit about your background outside of the writing what you’ve done,

of course, I’m Mike DiMaggio. I’m the author of so far six published short story, anthologies and novels, all set in my collaborate with my wife, she does the illustrations and also some of the writing in our original essentially POC universe, which is a universe of heroic adventure fiction, superheroes and non superhero was built on on great classics from from the public domain. But in my daytime, daytime job, what actually pays the bills, what allows my wife to stay home and and help her raise our son is a must. I’m a software engineer. So so just to get that out there in front I, if you’re if you’re looking to take advice from someone who makes so much on their on their books, that they don’t have another job, I am not the guy. But I think unfortunately, especially nowadays, there’s not there’s not too many people that are actually in that position.
