Elysium: Modern Myths of Immortality

In this collection of stories that mingle love with the horrors of mortality and loss, Immortals stalk the earth. Some search for those they’ve lost, others desperately try to escape their fate, while others are haunted, and trapped by humanity.

For most humans, there is the release of death to look forward to as freedom, but no such consolation exists for the Immortals and their subjects, who are destined to remain on the wheel of life – forcing them to make their own peace, and happiness at last.

Available at AMAZON.COM (Paperback & Kindle), BARNES & NOBLE and BOOKS-A-MILLION.

ANTHOLOGIES

Blood and Roses: A Devotional for Aphrodite and Venus
Edited by Rebecca Buchanan
(Poem: “Piercer of Souls”)

Aphrodite and Venus are complex Goddesses. The same may be said, of course, of any Power. When it comes to Deities associated with love or sex, though, too many fall back on caricature when trying to explain or understand such Beings: they are all lusty bubbleheads or consumed with materialist desires, or, worse, frivolous and cruel, given to playing with human hearts for their own amusement. That is not Aphrodite, nor is it Venus. Rather, they are Goddesses of immense power and deep passions, who can be kind and angry, wise and stubborn, cosmic in their transcendence and intimate in their immanence.

The Queen of the Sky Who Rules Over All the Gods: A Devotional Anthology in Honor of Bast
Edited by Rebecca Buchanan and Dorothy McCauley
(Short story: “Kitten”)

Bast is a complex Goddess of many names and many forms. She is sometimes a cat, sometimes a woman with the head of a cat, sometimes a woman with the head of a lion. She is both fiercely maternal, and wrathful. She is compassionate and sensuous, but also savage and grim. She is both huntress, and protector. As her devotees past and present attest, She is a Goddess of great beauty, great warmth, and great terror. A Goddess truly worthy of our devotion. Dua Bast!

She Walks in Shadows
Edited by Silvia Moreno-Garcia and Paula R. Stiles
(Short story: “The Cypress God”)

They emerge from the shadows, to claim the night …. Women from around the world delve into Lovecraftian depths, penning and illustrating a variety of Weird horrors. The pale and secretive Lavinia wanders through the woods, Asenath is a precocious teenager with an attitude, and the Ancient Egyptian pharaoh Nitocris has found a new body in distant America. And do you have time to hear a word from our beloved mother Shub-Niggurath? Defiant, destructive, terrifying, and harrowing, the women in She Walks in Shadows are monsters and mothers, heroes and devourers. Observe them in all their glory. Iä! Iä!

Published by Innsmouth Free Press. Available at AMAZON.COM (Paperback & Kindle) and BARNES & NOBLE.

Daughter of the Sun

Daughter of the Sun: A Devotional Anthology in Honor of Sekhmet
Edited by Tina Georgitsis
(Short story: “Lotus”)

Sekhmet is a complex Goddess, an ancient and ferocious Deity impossible to fit into a single, simple category. That is, after all, the way and nature of Gods: they are beings of awe and power and grace and wrath. All of these qualities are apparent in the poems, hymns, essays, rites, myths, and artwork which follow. Her modern-day devotees, scattered across the globe, find in Her a fiercely protective mother, a sly and cunning teacher, a joyful and creative muse, a wise initiator into ancient mysteries, and a righteous avenger of injustice. She is all of these things, and so much more. She is Sekhmet, most worthy of our love and devotion.
