Our author, Cy Stein, Author, has a new blog out talking about his writing process in regards to his book, "The Medicus Codex."

I have an acquaintance that is an avid reader and is fascinated by authors and the novels they write. Though I’m not Steven King, I’m the only author he’s ever known, so he interviewed me after I completed The Medicus Codex and its sequel, Caligula and I, which will appear from Insomnia Publis...

I finally made GARUM | Ancient Rome's favorite condiment

In his book, The Medicus Codex, Cy Stein, Author talks about some of the more common foods of the time.

If your curiosity was piqued like ours was, you can learn a lot about ancient foods online. For example, one of the foods mentioned often in The Medicus Codex is a sauce called "Garum." He describes it in the book, it is a salty fermented fish sauce that was all the rage in ancient Galen even advocated it as medicine!

We found this fascinating video on Youtube (and are avoiding work by watching all of Tasting History's videos) that tells you how to make your own. While we aren't going to be making garum anytime soon, it's a fun video to watch.

Cy's book, "The Medicus Codex" is available on all major bookselling outlets, including Amazon, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, and Apple Books.

In nearly every recipe we have from Ancient Rome, a key ingredient is Garum or Liquamen; fermented fish sauce. While it usually takes two months to make, I u...

We are proud to announce our newest launch today! "The Medicus Codex" by Cy Stein, Author! Set in mid 200 C.E. Rome, The Medicus Codex is full of twists, turns, and intrigue as we slip into the life of Gaius Romulus Saccius, a doctor in the great city.

Back Cover Text:
My name is not Gaius Romulus Saccius, though that is how almost all my patients during my long medical career knew me. I've lived in Rome for many years, but my origins are in the province of Palestine. As a young man, many Romans thought I hailed from Judea. They were not correct. I was born and raised in a small village in Galilee, many miles away.

My journey from young Galilean to well-established Roman physician was a long one which brought me into coflict and contact with some rather remarkable people, including Cesar Elagabalus.

As the old curse says, I have lived in very interesting times.

To anyone wanting a physical copy of The Last Queen of Loteria:

We promise they exist. Unfortunately, there seems to be some form of technical issue between our distributors and Amazon. It is now available on Amazon, though the cover art doesn't seem to have populated, and it has not been joined with the ebook version.

Insomnia Publishing is excited to announce the next book in the Cocytus series! Releasing September 30th, it is the second book in the series following Dante Carloman's ongoing trials as he attempts to survive the harsh and unforgiving world he has been abducted into.

Dante Carloman is the king of the humans on the planet of Cocytus. That title has earned him leadership of a small colony clinging to life on a bleak world and a death sentence by the dominant species in the galaxy: the Ipis. In this desolate place, Dante uncovers unnerving clues linking humans to the Ipis dating back to Earth’s early civilizations.

Captured and sent to a world designed for the slow tortured death of the Ipis’ enemies, Dante discovers astounding truths about mankind’s role in the galaxy. With his wits as his only weapon, he faces an enemy who has not known defeat for a millennium. Failure will not only doom everyone he loves but guarantee humanity’s annihilation.

We are absolutely thrilled to announce the launch of our newest book, "When Mommy's Job is Far Away," by Jennifer Glancy and LTC Vonnette Monteith! It is a beautiful story about a fox family's journey through Mama Fox's deployment in the military.

This book is special to us because it supports the US Military as well as helps highlight things parents and children can do together to help navigate deployment of a parent. It's a difficult time for a family, and this book is written with such love and compassion that it should be a soothing balm to anyone who reads it.

The book is live on Amazon.com for ebooks and print books are available through us, Ingram, or Amazon (which seems to be lagging, so keep an eye on that!).
