To further my case of being a lemming, I should likely state that, hey, I’m writing one. For whom? Oh, you know, I don’t know. I thought about it long and hard before I decided maybe I can write one for Poseidon . . .
Okay, not long or hard at all. It’s rather a no-brainer.
I still (and will likely forever) feel far under qualified to write such a thing. I’m doing it anyway, because it needs to be done.
My goal is to have it published by spring of 2013.
The plan is to have the book divided into three handy-dandy sections: Historical cult evidence; myths; modern worship. The emphasis will be on the modern worship, because that’s what’s most important. I’ll drudge up some of his lesser known myths, and I’ll poke around his various cult places, but really, I want to talk about Poseidon now, and so that’s what I’ll be doing.
And, once the snow melts (read: I give it an hour) I may get around to having my first Poseidon festival of the year. Since it’s to honor new growth, I really ought to wait until I can see said new growth.
