Yes, apparently, they are…and, most of it is good!
First off, Sannion just did a review of All-Soul, All-Body, All-Love, All-Power: A TransMythology, often known around these parts as “the Tetrad book,” which you can find here. It is physically and mentally difficult for me to take praise of this caliber, so I thank him for honoring me with his words and his endorsement! He didn’t quite get my gender correct, but otherwise, it’s a much appreciated effort! I hope to return the favor in the not-too-distant future once I’ve read Strange Spirits, and look forward to the opportunity to do so!
(Also: I wonder if I should start compiling reviews of my books on The Red Lotus Library’s page? I may just do that in the not-too-distant future…)
However, the thing which is garnering a lot of attention elsewhere is the recent Patheos.com Pagan Channel “Queer I Stand” column that I did, “Bringing Back the Gods.”
First up, Christine Hoff Kraemer did a kind of response to it on her Patheos.com blog, Sermons from the Mound, which can be found here. This is a resoned and important response, and perhaps I will address some aspects of it in a future post…we shall see.
I also got a mention (perhaps my first?!?) in Chas Clifton’s blog, Letters from Hardscrabble Creek, in a discussion of Gerald Gardner’s relationship (or lack thereof) with polytheism, which can be found here. It is, thus, interesting and timely that the discourse on the place of polytheism in modern paganism comes with a discussion of the fact that Gardner, the founder of the most prominent form of modern paganism, Wicca, was not himself a polytheist to make the point that marginalization of a polytheist viewpoint in the wider discourse of paganism is, in fact, a problem, and one that may indeed stem from the religious viewpoint of the founder of the religion!
And finally for the moment: as everyone who actually knows me realizes right off the bat: I’m a total Nazi fundamentalist. Yes, it’s true–that is, if you read the blog post and comments found here. I’ve rarely seen a more deliberate attempt to obscure, misunderstand, and misread something I’ve written, Godwin’s Law notwithstanding. In any case, if you feel the need to comment there, please don’t be as ignorant of what I actually said as the original poster or the subsequent commenters have been, and try to play as nicely as possible in doing so–while reasoned argument may not win out in the end, one can at least try.
There may be others, but these are the big ones that have come to my attention lately. If there are more in the near future, I’ll try and note them here, too.
