Endicott's Mythic Fiction List

Mythic fiction from Endicott Studio's recommended reading list. Vote for your favorites.

Endicott Studios say: "The field of mythic fiction consists of contemporary works that draw on the timeless themes and symbolism of world mythology, medieval romance, folklore, fairy tales, and the oral stoytelling tradition. Mythic fiction is set in the modern (or historical world), not in a far-off Nevernever land. But it portrays a world infused with mythic archetypes, mystery, and magic."

Rest, and the original list, can be found here on their website.

Thanks for providing me with a great selection of titles to add to my "to read" list! I loved all of the ones I've already read, so I'm confident that I'll enjoy most of the books on this list.

Alma Q Just in case I'm not the only one looking for a Listopia version of this: The list is finally updated and that the original creator of this list (and a couple of others) have removed their votes should no longer affect it.

It seems that Endicott Studios has also changed their version of the list to accommodate newer publications. However, unless someone can confirm that the titles listed below have never been on it, they should probably remain here...

Waiting for confirmation on these:
Sexing the Cherry
The Red Speck
Awakening
The Garden
He Mele A Hilo
Memory and Dream
Bless Me, Ultima
The Shape of Water
Knee-Deep in Thunder
Party at the World’s End
