  1. Khaire Hearthstone! I’m a big fan of your poetry. I use most of them in my morning devotions. You’re doing an amazing job.

    I couldn’t find a way to email you, so I’m leaving a comment: I went to your Lulu page and couldn’t tell which of your Prayers to the Gods of Olympus (e-book) was the most recent. Please let me know which one, so I can purchase. My email should be attached to my comment.

    • Thank you so much for the kind words; it really means a lot to me that folks are finding my work useful. 🙂

      To answer your question, “In Praise of Olympus” is the second book, the first was “Devotion.”

    • It’s likely that I will in the future, although I don’t know when; the inspiration seems to come and go. Thank you so much for the kind words, I really appreciate them :).

  3. Hello there, I have only recently started to pray to hades and i was wondering if you could give me any tips or advice on how to pray to hades proberly and make him listen to you?
    Any info would be much help
    Thanks

    • Historically, Hades was generally called on during funerals or when trying to contact the dead; he did not have a lot of temples compared with some of the other gods, and I believe it was more common for folks to approach Persephone with regard to underworld matters.

      What would be proper now for you, though, would depend in part on your own feelings about religion–whether you take a strictly reconstructionist approach, or are syncretic, or eclectic. Different things work well for different people.

      For a modern devotee, I would say that approaching him respectfully and honestly would be the key things; however, as I am not a particular devotee of Hades (although I do honor him) you could probably get better advice from someone who is. In any case, you can’t go wrong with prayer and meditation.

  4. When other things made less and less sense I kept finding myself back in the Odyssey. either in thought or literally. Doing some reading on Athena I stumbled in here. Thank you for the oasis.
