Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » This major source of Chinese mythology (3rd century BC to 2nd century AD) brings together a treasure trove of rare data and colourful fiction about the mythical figures, rituals, medicine, natural history and ethnic peoples of the ancient world. The text is brought to life using English equivalents for all the many names (such as the gods Foremost, Fond Care and the doomed Girl Lovely) and there is a lucid and entertaining introduction containing insights from comparative mythology. (Kirkus UK)
