We all love great books, blogs, websites, art, and more.  I’m certainly no exception. A good deal of the resources listed here relate to mythology or related topics. Quel surprise! However, I’m also pleased to give an online shout-out to people I’ve personally worked with and /or admire. Have fun exploring them all.

Mythology, History, and such
