Re: I need more Pantheons .... Re Celtic

Lady Augusta Gregory's Gods and Fighting Men is still probably the single best collection on Irish myth. Not always the easiest read but worth a look at anyhoo.

For the Welsh, probably best to go straight to source and pick up a copy of the Mabinogion

I'd also recommend Proinsias Mac Cana as an author if looking for more background knowledge.



If you want to get very scholarly, Georges Dumezil's books on Norse mythology are very interesting, and Jaan Puhvel has a decent amount on both in Comparative Mythology.


As for fiction based on the mythology -

There's a lot out there. But maybe look at American Gods, the Black Cauldron chronicles, The Broken Sword by Poul Anderson, and the Dresden Files as a start.

Donations open for yearly fees (close to target!) Hey guys,

Members have been really generous this year and we're very close to hitting our target and covering Fantasy-Faction's running costs ;D ;D ;D That's pretty awesome and I'm really grateful, because a few years back when we were closing in on renewal day I'd be hyperventilating :P

If you love what we're doing here at Fantasy-Faction and would like to throw a few £/$ towards keeping us up and running (as I know many of you already do), our donation page is here: http://fantasy-faction.com/support-us (Paypal email if easier is: Marc@Fantasy-Faction.com ).

It's Paypal-based, so really easy and quick to do. Of course, only consider doing so if you can afford it  :D

Thanks all - here's to another year or two (maybe)...  :P
