Extensive Folktext Resource

If you’re interested in using mythic or fairy-tale tropes in your fiction, here’s a wonderful online resource I discovered recently. The website – called “Folktexts” – was compiled by the retired scholar D.L. Ashliman. It contains a vast selection of tales which are grouped into themes, from “Bald Stories” to “Flatulent Stories” (and everything else in between). An excellent resource to dip into if you’re looking for some faerie inspiration.
