What is mythology? Why, it's fantasy fiction. Fantasy with a very old pedigree, of course ... but still fantasy. Forget what the cynics tell you; the real oldest profession in human society is storytelling. From time immemorial humans have been talespinners. Their ancient art is preserved today in the types of stories called mythology, folktales, and fairy tales. These are stories that have stood the test of time, and usually for very good reason. They tend to touch something very basic to our psyche. It can be hard to tell where one type ends and another begins; at the fringes, they sort of shade into one another.
