The best collection of essays on mythology I've ever read! Exciting introduction to the top authors in the field--I feel suddenly as though I got a very quick and easy course on the best new ideas on myths and legends. If you like Women Who Run with Wolves, you'll love this book! A must buy!!

I've got a short essay in this book, so let me say at the outset that i have reason to be biased. but i'm not, because to be honest i think the piece i helped write (on dream interpretation) is one of the weakest in the book. ventura's essay on meeting carlos casteneda is fantastic. i honestly think it's a great book, which i'm really honored to be part of.
