• Peace means something different from ‘not fighting’. Those aren’t peace advocates, they’re ‘stop fighting’ advocates. Peace is an active and complex thing and sometimes fighting is part of what it takes to get it. Jo Walton

  • Just a quick note
    I’ve updated my bio page with a link to Les Cabinets Des Polytheistes, where my story “Spine of the World” is published (and in which people can play Spot The Netjer if they are so inclined), and my less-specific webspace Suns in Her Branches, which is broader than this space (which is specifically for reconstructionist-derived […]

    And can be read here.Filed under: Patheos Links
  • Opet is coming ’round again
    And the Emboatening Crew is once more celebrating by making Kiva loans. You’re all welcome to join us. (My monthly column in Patheos Pagan is about Opet and charitable works, and will be going up tomorrow assuming nothing goes wrong.)Filed under: Festivals, Uncategorized
  • The Art of Being A God
    It’s interesting having one foot in reconstructionist religion and one foot in religious witchcraft, for a lot of reasons. One of the things that I’ve been thinking about lately is the shape of how the gods appear within the context […]
  • Mythopoeia
    Continuing with rambling on the topic of my exploration of pagan movement history, another critical concept: mythopoeia. The word means, literally, “myth-making”, and it is one of the near inescapable traits of at least the origin points of pagan religions. […]
  • Hills of the Horizon: The Past is Another Country
    The problem with extrapolation from history is that nothing is testable. The evolution of a religion over time is not a predictable and easily comprehensible thing, where we can look at a point in time and say, "It was like this then, so it would be like that now." The process of deciding what needs […]

A Big Announcement!

I am happy to announce that my short story, “Delayed Exchange Deferred”, will be appearing in The Death of All Things, an anthology put out by Zombies Need Brains. (That link currently goes to a page describing the anthology, as it happens, including some of the bigger names originally part of the collection.)

“Delayed Exchange Deferred” is a story about playing chess with Death, but I would wager it is not the story that most people would expect from that one-line summary.

I sort of want to write about the story, where it came from, why I had to write it, but I think I want to let it speak for itself for a little while, and maybe someday someone will ask me and I’ll be able to do it. It’s a political story, and a story about family, and … and.

Anyway, the book can be pre-ordered here.

I dunno, I’m out of words, so here, have a couple of recordings of “Down Among The Dead Men”.
