About JoMA

  • "The Journal of Mythic Arts" is an online journal published by the Endicott Studio, an organization dedicated to literary, visual, and performance arts inspired by myth, folklore, fairy tales, and the oral storytelling tradition.

    For generations, artists have drawn upon mythic and folkloric symbolism to make contemporary works addressing the issues of their time. Our mission is to honor mythic artists of the past, support mythic artists working today, and to carry this tradition into the future.

I completely agree with Midori. DON'T MISS this gorgeous novel.

Is it out? Is it out? I am going to run and get it!

I think it should be available as it has a pub date of August 28th. Amazon is currently shipping it.

Aug. 28 is my birthday and I'm thrilled that the reason Chris wrote the book was a present to me. Umm, at least, I can pretend that, lol.

"Too often contemporary novels with young adult protagonists feel compelled to exaggerate the teen voice by liberally lacing it with slang in an effort to make it "fresh" (a new marketing word)"

This is, unfortunately, very true.

I will definitely be reading this book.

Like Nymeth, I agree and will definitely be picking up a copy of this one, it sounds excellent.

I'm actually reading that book right now! I'm halfway through it, and I have to say, it's built such an atmosphere already, I can hardly bring my self to take a break from it.

Book Sales for
Endicott Kids

  • You support our children's charities when you buy books recommended anywhere on the JoMA site by following the book's link back to Amazon.com. This tags you as an Endicott customer, and we receive a small percentage of the sale.

    If we haven't got a link to the book, CD, or DVD that you want to purchase, you can still be an Endicott customer by entering Amazon through the link below. This nets a smaller percentage than the directly-linked books, but every bit helps and goes to a good cause.
