Obviously, that puts some gods in a tight spot due to modern sensibilities.

  1. I found the sandman series and it re~inspired my love of storytelling via the comic book medium. I respect and appreciate Neil Gaimans gritty and insightful way of approaching storytelling, myth and modern legend. His way of introducing new mythological opportunities which are at once birthed through and into our modern cultures in ways that are consistent and believable AND true to the traditional substance of ancient gods and goddesses as representations of the collective consciousness is modern magick.

    I agree with Neils way of reintroducing these relationships between the reader or witness and our collective culture by connecting us with the timelessness of these qualities and aspects which all people must relate through and with weather we like it or not .

    I would be honored to serve as a vehicle for his storytelling and so much so that if there are no roles in this project that I am suited for I will be happy to clean toilets or trash up off of the ground to be a part of the realization of this book.

    I started reading mythological tales very young and identify with the worldview that accepts archetypal aspects of “humanity” as the “gods” of today. I feel I have embodied in my life and approach to life this vantage and feel I have a depth of substance and experience to bring to any character in such a world as Neil Gaiman weaves into our collective waking dream consciousness.

    Would love to participate in any capacity.

    Thank you

I am very passionate about everything that I do and I think that is one of the most important attribute a person can have and it is great to bring that into everything I do.

  3. Hi! My name is Karis White and I have always been a very huge fan of greek mythology,Egyptian stories, and the mystery it brings to a readers experience. More so I would not only looove to see some of the stories that I’ve read come alive, but to be a part of this amazing opportunity!
