Reports of His death were greatly exaggerated. From his homeland of Arcadia, worship of the complex and dynamic Pan spread across the classical world. He continued to make appearances down through the ages in literature, artwork, sculpture and dreams. This devotional anthology — filled with scholarly essays, short fiction, and rich poetry — is a testament to Pan’s importance in the modern world and His place in the lives of His contemporary devotees.

Out of Arcadia can be purchased from our online store immediately. It will be available shortly through Amazon, and in ebook format on SmashWords.
ATTENTION Librarians, Teachers and Retailers: Out of Arcadia is also available at reduced cost for academic institutions, lending libraries (public and private) and retailers. Check our online store, or email email@example.com with any questions.
While our titles are available through Amazon, we would ask that you to purchase them through Createspace as that will give the Bibliotheca Alexandrina a higher portion of the royalties without changing the price for you. Why does that matter? Because all of the proceeds from Out of Arcadia – as well as many of the other volumes in the Bibliotheca Alexandrina series – will be used to help promote the revival of the worship of the Greek and Egyptian Gods, with a portion of the proceeds given to a worthy charitable organization in their name. So, not only will you be getting a wonderful book about the modern worship of Pan – but your money will be going to do good work and help the revival of ancient polytheistic religions.
We are rebuilding the Library of Alexandria one book at a time!
