Walking the Worlds 4.2 (Summer 2018): Miscellany

June 27, 2018


The new issue of Walking the Worlds: A Biannual Journal of Polytheism and Spiritwork (ISSN 2474-3135) is now available from Amazon and directly from the journal site. (Annual subscriptions offer 20% off the cover price.) Vol. 4 No. 2 features, among other articles, a groundbreaking translation, and timely book reviews, my own essay “Perceiving Aphrodite: Empedoclean Metaphysics” (pp. 40-53).

Please note that this issue, with its theme of “Miscellany”, inaugurates a new policy at Walking the Worlds. From now on, in addition to articles on the posted theme for the issue—for instance, the next issue (Winter 2018) will have the theme “Prayer”—the journal will also be accepting submissions on any other topic pertinent to the journal’s mission.

I sincerely hope that this new flexibility in submissions will encourage those who might have hesitated previously to write something for us. An academic journal dedicated explicitly and specifically to polytheist thought is something of value to the entire polytheist community. As for the academic format, many polytheists are consumers of academic literature, and I am of the opinion that if one can read it, one can write it. It often takes just a little effort to fashion an essay from a blog into something more rigorous that would be suitable for us; I encourage you to try.

What’s more, the journal is also going to be featuring book reviews regularly—there are three in the new issue. A book review is a fine way to grow more comfortable with an academic style of writing.

There are now a plethora of ways to get involved with Walking the Worlds.
