I mentioned in my 2013 retrospective post that the following book is out; but, I just got my copy in the post today, so now I can announce it officially now that I’ve held it in my hands!
Rooted in the Body, Seeking the Soul: Magic Practitioners Living with Disabilities, Addiction, and Illness edited by Tara “Masery” Miller has an essay by me in it called “Antinous the Imperfect.” It talks about some rather personal aspects of my own journey as a multiply-disabled person and dealing with a deity who is superlatively beautiful and athletic…and yet, it has all worked out! It is also one of few pieces that I’ve written for anthologies, or any publications other than a few of my own, that includes a ritual, so it may be of interest to all of you for that reason as well, even if you might not feel that the overall subject matter of the book or my essay in it may be of use to you.
You can purchase the book here.
And, as mentioned on several previous occasions, Masery did an interview with me before the release of the book as well at the Staff of Asclepius blog at Patheos.com’s Pagan Channel, too!
Thank you to Masery, and to all of the contributors to this anthology, for your excellent work!
