As mortals we long for those who have been separated from us by the veil of death. We venerate ancestors, known and unknown; we grieve for love ones lost; we ready ourselves for death, or fear it deeply as the ultimate unknown.
In Hellenic tradition, the god who rules beyond the veil is called many things. Most often, He is referred to as Hades, a name also given to His realm. He is a somber god, for the most part, one too aware of the responsibilities He bears. But He has a queen by His side to share the burden, His beloved Persephone; and a host of attendants, such as the Ferryman, the Lord of Dreams, the Lord of Sleep, Mother Night, and His great three-headed guard dog.
In this volume, you will find poems and short stories, essays and rites which honor the God Below, the Lord of Riches, the Bearer of the Helm of Invisibility. For to fail to honor Him, to fail to recognize His inescapability, is to court disaster; even madness. For there is no avoiding death, and someday we shall all find ourselves His subjects.
Xaire, Haides and your host of many! May our inevitable knowledge of you not come too swiftly, or be delayed overlong past when mercy is preferable.
For generations all over the world, people have turned to nature and its creatures to describe and define their lives. In these short, story-like poems and fables, the animals do not behave like true animals, but instead like humans. As they act out dangerous situations, their character traits are taken to the extreme, they teach all who hear their tales how to behave in our tricky and sometimes harsh world.
Come on a journey with us as we explore the works of many diverse and talented poets who each know how to write uplifting words to stimulate our senses and make us feel better about ourselves.

With a fondness for the occult and a thirst for absolute power, Hitler wanted mythical creatures and legendary monsters to join the German War Machine. The Fuhrer made it clear that he wanted the SS to explore every nook and cranny to find these ancient beasts in hopes that they could master them.

What they found, however, was that the monsters that they sought for were not the type that could be mastered.This collection consists of ten tales of monsters of various kind and origin slaying NAZIS.
