Science fiction fans know me as M.J. Engh, author of Arslan and other books. I'm also an independent scholar of Roman history, and in that field I write as Mary Jane Engh. This website is for talking about both those interests, and maybe a few more. Come right in!

For those of you who have asked, “But where can I find your other stories?” you'll find all my published fiction listed on the My Works page, with bibliographic information and notes about how I came to write each story.

For those interested in real history, there's In the Name of Heaven, which is, so far as I know, the only general history of religious persecution in English. Then take a look at Femina Habilis, a major non-fiction project that will eventually bring together information on thousands of women who played practical roles in Roman history.
