It might be an obvious choice, but who wouldn't include Zombies as part of their theme - they're awesome! Much like vampires, zombies have been portrayed in a variety of ways and apart from the (mostly) undead part - writers have enjoyed to play with the rules and, well, basically scare us half to death. … Continue reading A to Z Blogging Challenge – Day 28: Fantasy Squad – Zombies

A to Z Blogging Challenge – Day 29: Fantasy Squad – Yeti

The Yeti, or Abominable Snowman, is an interesting creature because, though most agree the Yeti is part of myth, cryptozoologists have been trying to prove the existence for years.

A to Z Blogging Challenge – Day 28: Fantasy Squad – Xena (and other female warriors)

My options were limited today, so I had to find a best fit. I was going to talk about Xelhua, one of the seven giants from Aztec mythology. But Xelhua doesn't work for two reasons: one, I've already done giants, and two, I cannot find any references to the giant in fiction. But I will tell you … Continue reading A to Z Blogging Challenge – Day 28: Fantasy Squad – Xena (and other female warriors)

There are various myths surrounding witches. Many of these include pointy hats, broom sticks, spells and potions, and even pacts with the devil. It's a mine field.
