The Endicott Studio Journal of Mythic Arts

I’ve been on a Fantasy/Fairy Tale kick lately, what with Stardust and all. While doing a Google search I came across an excellent web site called The Endicott Studio. The site contains art, articles, poems, and short stories with a myth, folklore, and fairy tale theme. It also contains a quarterly (?) online magazine. As far as I can tell, all the content is free although they encourage donations. Here is a link to their Summer 2007 Issue.

In my brief perusing of the site I came across a few poems written by Neil Gaiman: Boys and Girls Together and The Fairy Reel. In searching for this, I see he actually has four poems in their poetry index. Check those out.

In addition to poetry, they also have short stories there. I particularly liked The Man Who Owned the Moon about an old man who had the moon in a jar and placed it on his windowsill each night.

I don’t know why I’m so interested in these types of stories lately. I guess the world we live in is so drab, and dark, and brooding sometimes that it’s nice to read about magic, and fairies, and old men who have the moon in a jar.

Endicott has been around for 20 years so I am just scratching the surface of what is there. Look around.

  1. I will definitely look at the site you suggested.
    The magic is always there and sometimes people talk about it and live within it, but we explore it a bit late. I hope it is not late.
    The man with the moon has already caught my attention.

  2. Rob – I’ll have to check that one out. Thanks for the link.

    SzélsőFa – I hope you liked that man with the moon story. Also, I suppose there is some magic in the world. I just wish there was more. 🙂

  3. I have read it this morning and found it very captivating, interesting. I liked how the story unfolded after the first few, for me, a bit uninteresting paragraphs.
    Once it unfolded, it kept me reading to the very end.
    Overall, I loved it.!

    Re:magic in the world. Of course there is. I assume it’s not ‘some’, it’s ‘fairly much’.
    Should have I said ‘fairy-ly much’ instead?

    (pun intended)
