I’m very happy to announce that the latest publication from Bibliotheca Alexandrina–the publishing arm of the Neos Alexandria group–is now out and available: Guardian of the Road: A Devotional Anthology in Honor of Hermes! I’ve got six poems in it (“Dionysos and Hermes,” “Hermekate’s Moment,” “Hermes Propylaios,” “Maia,” “The Account of Hermaphroditos,” “Antinous Neos Hermes”) and one essay (“Neos Hermes, The Great Translator: Hermes, Antinous, and Syncretism”), but there’s tons more in there to be excited about as well!
Very exciting stuff!
This comes at an opportune time: not only did I receive a statue of Hermes in the mail the other day (which used to be mine, but which I entrusted to the care of Sannion when he first went to Eugene, and which he now returned), but Hermes has been attempting to “steal” further devotions in some of my Antinoan devotional works…which, I suppose, is entirely apt, since it’s not even really “borrowing” between those two…!?!
Khaire Hermes! Khaire Antinoe!
