Two more books

March 21, 2013

Bibliotheca Alexandrina has recently published two more books in which I was lucky enough to have my letterings included.

Harnessing Fire: A Devotional Anthology in Honor of Hephaestus.  Edited by Rebecca Buchanan and the Editorial Board of BA

HF FrontCover

Metalsmith. Fire-Tamer. Forge-Master.
Bronzeworker. Weaponsmaster of the Gods.
The Lame One. The Ugly God.
Friend of Humanity.

He is Hephaestus, the Divine Craftsman. Patient, stout-hearted, and clever, he is the Master of all Metals, the Holy Engineer. Celebrated for his wondrous creations, he is also pitied and teased for his lameness, his unsightly appearance, his estrangement from his family, and his marriage to lovely Aphrodite.

But Hephaestus is not a God to be underestimated or ill-used — a reality understood by his modern devotees. In the pages of this anthology you will find poems, prayers, essays, artwork, and rituals glorifying the Divine Mechanic. Some of his devotees see his hand in the engineering marvels of the Industrial Age and the hardware of the Information Age. Others see his handiwork in the heavens or hear his rumblings deep in the earth. Still others see lessons to be learned in his reconciliation with his mother, Hera, and his very nature as a “disabled” God.

He is the Messenger of the Gods and the Keeper of the Flocks, the Luck-Bringer and the Trickster, the Protector of the Home and the Guardian of the Road and all who travel it. Hermes is a diverse God of many names, talents, and masks.  In this anthology by his modern devotees, you will find art, poetry, hymns, rituals, and essays.

Come, and meet the Immortal Guide.
