About

Welcome to my blog! My name is Peter Smith, which is stubbornly hard to google, so I am adopting the alias Petros Jordan. Petros is Greek for Peter, meaning “rock”, and it is also my maternal grandfather’s name. Jordan is my middle name, my father’s first name and his mother’s maiden name.

I have a B.A. in philosophy from Boston College and a J.D. from UConn.  Currently I work as an attorney for a firm in the New Haven, CT area. Since I was a kid, I loved to write short stories, poems, and small books. Now I’m working on a fantasy novel which I hope to publish later this year.

This blog isn’t really about me. It’s about the things that fascinate me: writing, fantasy, history, maps, language, philosophy, and humor.  If you like these things too, then please feel welcome to join the conversation!

Updates are every Sunday.

Please feel free to email me at Petros.Smith@gmail.com

  1. Hey Petros, wasn’t sure how to contact you with a link — it’s a collection of subjective maps of NYC, kind of a meld of personal interpretation and mapping that seems you-adjacent:

  3. Hello, Petros. I just wanted to thank you for stopping by Domestic Issue and Liking my post on the map of Tenochtitlan. The blog is just now getting up and running, so I’m pleased that people are finding it.
