Ascension Epoch

A Shared Universe of Heroic Adventure Fiction for the Creative Commons


The Ascension Epoch is a shared-universe for heroic adventure fiction. Created by the husband and wife team of Shell ‘Presto’ and Mike DiBaggio, Ascension Epoch builds off the public domain, from the classic literature of the 19th century to the Golden Age of Comics in the 1940s. The universe was also built for the commons: every story and piece of artwork is released copyright free.

There are several Ascension Epoch prose novels, short stories, audiobooks, and comic strips, running the gamut from superhero adventure to military science fiction to horror. Paperback and ebook copies of these works will be available at the booth, along with shirts and artwork.

Shell and Mike will also be doing a few creator panels during the show.
