I love mythology. It started with the segment my 9th grade English teacher did on Greek mythology. Back then, I was fascinated with Daphne and the Erinyes. In college, I took a mythology class to fulfill an elective. My professor (who looked like Santa Claus, and even wore red frequently) touched a bit upon the Greek myths, but concentrated mostly on Norse and Irish. I took notes, of course, but rather than take them to help me study for tests, I took them as a reference for story ideas and themes. Luckily I still passed the class.
Unchanged features a little-known character from American mythology of the Pacific Northwest. The following books all deal with mythology in some form. Check them out!
