Trickster Makes the World

Starting collecting info on tricksters again for another script project – in a fit of madness the other night, I labeled the project an “urban fable.” Kind of pretentious really, but what the hell…

Nice Wiki page on Tricksters. Though it’s kind of an odd-mash-up of info, with an extended section on Coyote, but no one else (on that page). The few sub-pages I clicked through seem pretty decent, though.

On the same motif, I recently reread Charles De Lint’s Someplace to be Flying this past spring. De Lint’s Crow girls are terrific, as are most of the animal people in that book.

Of course I also picked up Tim Power’s Last Call again, because it is awesome. 🙂

And I should also reread Coyote Blue by Christopher Moore – some great scenes in Vegas.

On the to read list:

Trickster Makes the World, by Lewis Hyde

Anansi Boys, by Neil Gaiman

Hustler Days, by R.A. Dyer

Declare, by Tim Powers

But I’m always up for recommendations.
