This Compendium seeks to gather information about the lesser known Monsters, Myths and Fantastical occurrences that exist on this particular rock. From ancient tales of the Hittites, accounts of splendid artifacts and bizarre creatures to discussion of more modern social cults and contemporary fables, the origin is secondary to the shadow cast by the associated tale.

You are also invited to submit your favourite myths, legends and creatures for inclusion, no matter whether it’s an old tale you once heard, something real and weird or your own invention. Simply add a comment or email vix@vickyroden.com for a prompt reply.
