Travels with Hermes is the main webpage for Andrew Kloak, a native of Chicago, he moved to California in 1999. He’s taken classes in the Creative Writing Program at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California and at the Writers’ Loft, Chicago’s top writing workshop. This blog allows him to range the interconnected genre: fiction, social commentary, and creative non-fiction with Hermes leading the way.
He started Travels with Hermes in October 2014 to promote his forthcoming Working the Glass: A Novel. Hermes is the right archtype for the journey. Why Hermes? He’s the Greek god of travelers, guide of souls and interpreter between the world of Mystery and the world of humanity. He is also guide to the best hidden experiences of the world and the soul.
He sees 2016 standing out as a crossing. Some call it a threshold year. It’s an inflection point opening characterized by exponential change in my own narrative and the culture. The mythic warriors now are giving way to sages who can lead and see up ahead in the exciting days to come.
