About Jack Mulcahy

Proud Descendant of Poets and Bards

I am a descendant of Irish poets and bards from whom I inherited my love of stories and storytelling. A writer all my life, I have produced free-lance articles for newspapers and magazines, and sold fiction to Altered Reality, Pulp Empire, Abandoned Towers, Shadow Sword, Lesbian Short Fiction, Lost Worlds, Sorcerous Signals, Flashing Swords and Young Adventurers. My wife and I live in suburban Philadelphia, by the grace of our two cats, the real homeowners. I am currently at work on a novel that combines the fantasy/adventure of Robert E. Howard’s Conan with the feminist themes of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid’s Tale.

Here's a sample story

December 2019

Check out "'Ware the Power." It's one of four by Yours Truly at Altered Reality magazine (www.alteredrealitymag.com). Click on "Meet the Authors" and you'll find me on the list. While you're at it, check out the latest issue of Altered Reality. Or you can just click the picture of the swordswoman to go direct to the story.

"In my view, a writer is a writer because even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise,
you keep writing anyway."
