    The Whisperer is the god Hermes, the god of crossing boundaries—the friendliest of gods to men, he is also lord of roads, a guide of the dead to Hades, and he protects men in their dealing with strangers: whenever an entry is made into another world, or a different kind of knowledge, the whisperer is there, wherever a road is traveled, there the wonderful companion suddenly appears. It is a trait of his character that he is swift, always moving, and when he appears it is sudden, and magical. He ... more

  • In Season's Dream

    by R. Tirrell Leonard, Jr.
    With the book broken up into the four seasons, the poetry reflects the imagery, mood and elements of the four seasons, and then goes beyond for personal truths.
