The second issue of BY THE GODS! is ready and will be available soon, right after I get a physical copy and make corrections if there are any to be made. So, most likely next week or Monday, March 11.
Making this issue was really fun to make.
There are a few changes made to the magazine. It will be published 4 times a year, not 6 times, which I always thought was bit much. The third issue should be available in the middle of May. There are more pages than the first issue. This issue also starts the second volume, meaning the first issue was the first magazine and the first year of publication. A fresh start to 2024.
You can buy the first issue here.
Next month, March 12, Mario Bava’s THE WHIP AND THE BODY (1963) starring Christopher Lee and Dariah Lavi, will be available on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber. This is great news. This is one of my favourite Bava movies and seeing it in HD will be treat. From an online review, the image seems to be very dark and some worry about this (below). These HD transfers of old movies often result in dark images. It’s nothing new. But this might be ok here. Anyway, I’ll definitely buy it.
Looking at the stats for the blog, I saw that one post was getting tons of clicks. So, I had to look for it. Here’s the source of the many clicks.
What’s highlighted in blue is a link to the article here at BY THE GODS!
Here’s the link to the BTG article!
Of all things from this blog, this is the one post that goes viral. It’s so odd since this information is publicly known for a long time. Oh well…
This is the final version of the cover for issue No 2 of BY THE GODS! magazine. It should be ready soon.
There are more projects for 2024 so keep your eyes peeled and visit the blog often for updates!
Happy New Years to all the blog’s followers and visitors.
Thanks for your support!
Christmas and New Year’s Eve is upon us. 2024 is just around the corner.
2023 passed by so quickly I can’t believe we’re in December. I still feel like we’re in August. Anyway, there were many interesting things which transpired during the past year which, of course, is the publication of BY THE GOD! magazine.
But as Christmas approaches, I can’t help and think about all the stories from the Bible which haven’t been made into a film. Most notably THE THREE WISE MEN, THE THREE MAGI or THE THREE KINGS. The story would make a great PEPLUM movie. I can see it.
There’s an Italian movie starring Raoul Bova called THE FOURTH KING (above). It’s cute but an epic adventure of this quest would be cool.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
I’m currently working on issue #2 of BY THE GODS! magazine. I wanted the issue to be available before Christmas but for now, it’s unlikely for a couple of reasons, the main one being shipping. It takes at least 2 weeks for Magcloud to print and ship the magazine and with the massive Christmas rush of packages being shipped in time before December 24, the magazines will be caught in the jam and will most likely be late. So, issue #2 should be available on the first or second week of January.
Here’s a sneak preview of the cover. There might be some last minute changes to it but that’s what I’m working on for the time being.
I like the gold and red look but I really like the black and red look of the first issue. Anyway, I have so time to figure it out.
In the meantime, for those who didn’t buy the first issue, you can purchase it at Magcloud with the link below. 20% discount with the code: HOLIDAYS20. Valid until December 11.

I’m currently working on issue 2 of BY THE GODS! magazine. I don’t know when it will be available. Hopefully before Christmas. If not, then early January. I’m pleased with the response of the first issue and it warrants a continuation. I don’t have any images to share yet (it’s too early…) but it will be spectacular.
With that being said, I’m also working on a couple of other projects. I’ve completed a novel and I’m still in the finishing process. The other project will be a visual feast. I’ve uploaded an image (below) but the image doesn’t really have to do with it but, well, yes it’s directly like the image.
Thank you to everyone who purchased the magazine! I’m happy with the results. Hopefully, more people will purchase it.
It’s cool to have a magazine dedicated solely to the PEPLUM genre. I’m currently working on issue 2. For now, issue 1 is only available to purchase in print form. I was thinking of making a digital version available as well but once a digital copy makes the rounds, no one will buy it and simply get the dupe.
My question is: would you buy a digital copy of BY THE GODS! ?
