In it he talks about old gods being brought to America and forgotten. It really gave me a soft spot for them, lol. Also, he talks about the introduction of new gods that are based on the modern things we pay attention to, like credit, tv and computers. It's an interesting read.
I most certainly plan to learn as much as I can about each immortal I feel called toward. I think it's not just good for bonding, but good for understanding our own nature.
It's so strange. If you would have asked me 5 years ago if I could choose any diety to have a speaking relationship with I would have said Bast in a heartbeat. I just don't feel called to her. I think it must be the revenge aspect. I thought maybe it was embarrassment about not giving my kitties enough attention, but it seems like she would help me find the time and inspiration to do that. Idk!
I have had a longtime connection with Bast, and even though I know that she can do revenge, she has always been nothing but very caring towards me, i have never asked her to do any revenge, but she always does seem to help me when it matters the most!!!!
She also doesn't mind that I have quite a few other immortals in my keep, like most of the Norse immortals, hehehehe, but she is always there anyway!!!
I have a few of the older books on the immortals and I really like their view on them as they seem to be more respectful towards the immortals

I think the best thing is to read the old myths and legends about the Immortals. Of course, each Immortal may respond different to the individual keeper. Just keep working with them to get to know them better.
That is very true, the more you work with them, the better you can understand them, and yes they do react to each person differently, according to how that person is and whatever is going on in that person's life
Of course for me, both Thor and Pan always get me to laughing because Thor would turn the table over and smash the glass and ask for more, and Pan would say the heck with that, let's just go out and find our own food and drink
