The Hero with a Thousand Faces The Hero with a Thousand Faces (first published in 1949) is a seminal work of comparative mythology by Joseph Campbell. In this book, Campbell discusses his theory of the journey of the archetypal hero found in world mythologies.

Game of Thrones Board Game On Saturday Brenden and Dan came over to play the Game Of Thrones board game that I got for my birthday.

Egyptian mythology Egyptian mythology is the collection of myths from ancient Egypt, which describe the actions of the Egyptian gods as a means of understanding the world.

Game of Thrones Season 5 Is Finally Here! The Epic Premiere Brings Death, Drama and Dragons Warning: major spoilers below! Do not read until you have watched the Game of Thrones season five premiere, "The Wars to Come." Waiting for Game of Thrones season five has felt like forever, but just imagine if you were a young Cersei waiting over 30 years to watch your awful, terrible future unfold just as a witch told you it would when you were just a child? That's how the season five premiere of HBO's hit series kicked off, with the long-awaited flashback scenes to young Cersei Lannister, walking through the woods with a friend, seeking out a witch she'd heard lived on "her" lands.

Charming kid, huh?
