Pimping someone else for a change

Just wanted to let the f-list know I'm the designated blogger at Fantasy and Enchantment--at least until tomorrow's Thursday 13.  This week's topic is Adrienne Mayor, the folklorist I want to be when I grow up.  :-)  Adrienne figured out the connection between ancient fossil hunters and mythic visions of the Cyclops and classical depictions of griffins.  She's also done some great work on ancient drugs.  Can't wait 'til my next cache of her books arrives from Amazon!
Cheers and grins,
