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.

Neverwhere is one of my most favorite books of all time. I read it at least once a year and am in the process right now of having Neil read it to me via the recently released audio version of the book. I love the idea of underground cities. There was an article a few years ago about the Moscow underground and a series of shows on the History Channel a few months back were wonderful. I forever kick myself for not knowing about and hence visiting the underground city when I was in Seattle. There simply will have to be a next time!

How annoying that neither the Pasadena Public Library nor the Los Angeles Public Library ever seem to have the books you recommend! Grrrrr...

Thanks for reintroducing to Peter Milton 's work , I bookmarked the site, a great inspiration for my own work .

Dear Anonymous above: It's possible the library doesn't "yet" have the books we review which are all new titles. Libraries are about six months behind buying, logging in, and shelving new books. You might mention the titles to the librarian and request that they get added to their list of new purchases.

    To access the blog's archives, use the handy search engine, or the date and catagory links below.

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.

    Please bookmark this page for all your Amazon purchases -- and help us to help the Endicott kids.
