The Scribing Ibis: An Anthology of Pagan Fiction in Honor of Thoth
He was Creation's First Storyteller. To soothe a wrathful Goddess, ibis-headed Thoth spun tales of honor and greed, love and treachery, Gods and princes and pirates. Entranced, charmed, Her rage cooled, the Goddess returned to heaven. Order was restored.
And so it is in His name that we dedicate this collection. Here, modern Pagans and polytheists continue that ancient tradition, weaving stories of creation and loss, death and rebirth, humor and courage, transformation and destruction. From the banks of the Nile to the icy north, from modern-day Kansas to far future alien worlds, these tales sing of the grace and glory of the Gods, and Their place in our lives.
Additionally, nonfiction essays explore the place of Thoth in ancient Egyptian theology and literature; the contemporary Pagan romance publishing scene; and the use of the Green Man and the Fool as archetypes in modern fiction. A select timeline lists important polytheist and Pagan works of fiction, from ancient times through the modern era.
In His name: Thoth, Thout, Tetu, Techu, Zehuti, Tehuti, Djehuty. The Scribe of Ma'at. The Lunar Librarian. Lord of Divine Words. Creation's First Storyteller.
