Fantasy, Folklore, Fairy Tale and Mythology

Spring Reader’s Challenge

Carl V. who is no relation to the alien alligators in human suits currently to be found on network television, runs the blog Stainless Steel Droppings. He’s launching his second Reader’s Challenge of the year, Once Upon A Time IV.

This challenge, now in it’s fourth year, challenging you to read some fantasy. Or, if you prefer, some folklore, or fairy tales or mythology. Combine them if you like. There are several levels and a short story challenge. This is a Burger King of a challenge: you can have it your way. (okay, so that’s trite and a cliche. It works.)

Carl does reader challenges well and has experience, he has the process down pat.

All the information you need is found at his blog, which you can reach via the link in the first sentence of this post or by clicking on the Once Upon A Time image in the right column.

If you like this kind of reading, whether it be fiction or non-fiction, this may be for you. If you haven’t ever tried any fantasy, this could be a good time. If you’re not sure, why not drop over and read some of the comments posted by others? There are sure to be suggestions and recommendations that you’ll find intriguing.

    I signed up. Thanks for the link. Carl’s site is new to me.

  2. Carl V. says:

    Thanks for the promo Richard, glad that Randy is joining in as well.

    the Burger King reference is spot on!

    And I wouldn’t be so sure that I’m not of the alien variety.

    Burger King. That guy with the Big Head kind of creeps me out. 🙂

    This is my favorite of the challenges as fantasy is my first love. I wouldn’t be the reader I am today if not for discovering The Hobbit and LOTR in the 7th grade.

  4. Richard says:

    Yes, Jeff, I agree. Can’t imagine why they stick with that ad campaign.

  5. Richard says:

    I read more SF and mystery than fantasy, so this will be a weaker one for me. I do have a couple of things here, though. 🙂
