From the Roaring Deep - An Anthology to Poseidon

Poseidon. Amphitrite. Nereus and the Nereids. Triton and Tethys.
Iris and the Graeae. Proteus and Styx
and Medusa.
They are of the sea, and more than the sea. They are the primordial ocean from which life arose, and which continues to sustain the world. They are the saltwater in our blood. They are storm and wind and tide and crashing waves. They are glorious beings of water and salt and light, avengers of injustice and providers of bounty. They are fathers and mothers and lovers. They are wrathful and exuberant, compassionate and wise, quixotic and impulsive and shrewd.
They are Powers most worthy of our devotion, our prayers, and our respect.
Hail Poseidon and the Spirits of the Sea!

Update: Call of the God - Arrival of the Proof

The proof copy of Call of the God: An Anthology Exploring the Divine Masculine within Modern Paganism arrived today with its draft cover.  Finally the completion of this anthology is edging all that bit closer.
I am still not happy with the template I have been using for the cover and while I don't mind what I have been able to produce, there is still something that I am not 100% sold on.  So I have commissioned a graphic design friend of mine to work his magick in order to see what he can come up with.  While this magick is happening, and due to the various delays experienced this year, I thought I would at least order a proof to ascertain what the interior looked like and whether any subsequent changes needed to be made in an attempt to speed up the actual manifestation of this project.
