A non-fiction work summarizing the research of Joseph Campbell on myths and presenting it with the writer in mind. The author and his intended audience are actually screenwriters, but the material is perfectly applicable to novel writers. Examples are almost entirely from films, with lots of expostulation on Star Wars and The Wizard of Oz.
