"Encyclopedia Mythica is "an encyclopedia on mythology, folklore, legends, and more." The Mythology section covers 23 different cultural mythologies ranging from Aboriginal to Roman with articles and definitions of varying length. Characters or events mentioned within one article are linked to the corresponding full-length article entry. Articles may be submitted by anyone, but there is a long list of contributing editors who verify and edit information accepted for the site. There is a 260-image gallery of mythological creatures and the genealogy tables (some of which are under construction) provide information for the major mythical families. The "Consorts and Offspring of Zeus" table is a good example of the helpful information provided in the genealogical section. A pronunciation aid is available from the "Areas" page under "Miscellanea," and the entire site is searchable. This is a great companion for readers of all levels studying mythology."--Reviewed Apr. 2, 2001. "Best Free Reference Web Sites 2001," RUSA Quarterly, Fall 2001.
