'The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica' by James A. Owen  Post [1]


A fanscinating, yet peculiar, combination of mythology, fantasy, literature, fairy tales, theology, and pop culture. Also it has Dragon(ship)s, badgers and battle goats.

It's one of my most favourite serieses of all time, and I understand and notice more references and details each time I re-read them. They also have gorgeous illustrations - the author is actually a comics artist.

This was a fantastic series! I'd forgotten about it until I saw this post and now I just want to read it all over again. It's been a long time.

I love how the author was able to tie together all the different stories we're familiar with (and not so familiar with), from fairy tales to myths. Really clever.

Yes, especially because of the really good research! He combined the earliest forms of the stories and their equivalents, which is really cool. It also shows how very small our world is - you can often find the same story in every culture.
