I love mythology. If you haven’t yet, browse over to my website and check out the Writer Resources page. There you will find a link to the Encyclopedia Mythica, a huge database of mythology and folklore information. I browse this thing almost daily. (here’s the link if your finger is too tired for all that clicking: Encyclopedia Mythica)
Anyways, this blog is to let you all know I’ve found yet another site dedicated to tunneling through the must and dust of forgotten tales and polishing them until they are all shiny again.
According to their website, “The Mythopoeic Society is a non-profit international literary and educational organization for the study, discussion, and enjoyment of fantastic and mythic literature, especially the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Charles Williams. Membership in the Mythopoeic Society is open to all scholars, writers, and readers of these literatures.”
They take themselves quite professionally, and so if there are any fellow mythology-addicts out there, this might be a resource well worth investing in, both for fun, and to spark all those wonderful story ideas already creeping around in your brain.
Oh, yes. And check out this site which is partnered with theirs. The Elvish Linguistic Fellowship. It’s the fantasy version of learning Klingon. Has anyone come out with an Elvish Bible yet? I almost dread the day. Enjoy!
I see that smile.
