“Freedom” is the catch cry in so much historical fiction but it's usually an anachronistic piece of nationalist fantasy. You fought for your lord, for pay ...

Been a while since we did a mythology themed FanBest article, so here we go. Based on suggestions left by our beloved Ozoneocean on the last Fanbest article, I’m gonna talk about the Rainbow Serpent this Sunday. The Rainbow Serpent is an Aboriginal Australian deity known by numerous names ...

Fantastic Bestiary 13: The Galerian

Andreas_Helixfinger at 12:00AM, Sept. 18, 2022



This is gonna be a bit of an obscure pop cultural Fantastic Bestiary rundown, but heck with it, it’s my article series and I’m doing it anyway. I’m gonna talk about the Galerians today. To start off, Galerians is a tank-control style survival horror video game for ...

Fantastic Bestiary 12: The Na’vi

Andreas_Helixfinger at 12:00AM, Aug. 28, 2022



Another pop cultural fantastic bestiary Sunday. Anybody remember the movie Avatar? Not the kung-fu fantasy one, the tribal sci-fi one. The James Cameron’s Avatar as it was marketed. I still remember it being the movie that REALLY set the standard for what CGI technology can do cinematically, making this ...

Andreas_Helixfinger at 12:00AM, June 12, 2022



So! Back to mythology. And we are going back to my place again, good ol’ Scandinavia. In the summertime no less when the color green is everywhere, the fields are high and trolls come sneaking down from their magically hidden caves and mountain kingdoms. To me the Scandinavian depiction of ...

Fantastic Bestiary 9: The Wookie

Andreas_Helixfinger at 12:00AM, June 5, 2022



In this newspost I thought I’d start breaking away from myth a little bit. So far I’ve brought up species and entities from myth and legend, but this is not a series of articles that is just about mythical fiction, but also popular fiction. So! Wookies! Absolutely iconic ...

Fantastic Bestiary 8: The Mermaid

Andreas_Helixfinger at 12:00AM, May 29, 2022



Recently it struck me. So far I’ve already brought up two water-based mythic beings in this series of articles, and non of them were mermaids. Which is why I’ve decided to talk about them here today. We’re pretty much all familiar with mermaids. Though maybe not as ...

The Reimagining of Myth

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, May 28, 2022



Mythologies are fascinating. And with good reason. Each set represents centuries, if not millennia, of common unconscious and community narratives about all aspects of human existence: from the big questions of who we are to the wonders and terrors of nature to the wonders and terrors of society.

In short ...
