My New Series with Amazing Stories

One of the exciting developments of 2018 has been finding a home for my blog series Modern Myth and Meaning. For a couple of years, I’ve had this idea that I wanted to explore the connections between pop culture and contemporary mythology. At WorldCon last year, I met the editor of Amazing Stories. It turned out he was looking for bloggers! The rest, as they say, is recent history.

My latest post, just up today, explores the cultural and mythic resonances of Twin Peaks’s Log Lady.

The inaugural post delved into the physiological effects and meaning of the Vulcan salute, from a yogic perspective.

Enjoy, and please leave your thoughts in the comments!
