    All the beauty, magic and fascination of the Celtic world in a comprehensive, beautifully written guide. Goddesses, gods, mythical queens and kings, heroes and heroines, saints and otherworldly creatures. Customs, rituals, battles and legends written like a fairytale to spread the wealth of the Celtic culture of the British Isles, Brittany and the rest of the Celtic world. A jewel that should find a place in every bookcase.

    There is no other encyclopedia in my vast collection that has more highlights, notes, and use than this one. As a writer who has set a world and story around Celtic lore, this book was a must have. Rarely do I not find a category or name I'm seeking and rarely do I not find some nugget that sends me down a rabbit hole of even more research. Love this resource.

    Broad collection of Celtic mythical/folklore figures, places, tales. Entries are cross-referenced. Again, the only thing that would make a book like this more user-friendly, since it does include an index, would be a sub-division of the entries by specific culture.

    An excellent overview with various references for everything Celtic. A must-have for authors infusing their stories with Celtic faeries and folklore.

    Serves its purpose of being an encyclopedia, but I was hoping for something a little easier to tie narratives, myths, etc. Which this book does not do for beginner students of the subject.

    I love this Encyclopedia. It is a world of knowledge towards Celtic history and information. Many of the creature and their story's, as told by my grandmother, are inside and I get to hear and learn about them on much more knowledgeable grounds. The information is endless and I even learnt a few things, I had missed through my Grandmothers skittish approach to storytelling, about the stories I grew up with. Such an interesting read. I recommend it to anyone who loves a little fairy-tale and who I love this Encyclopedia. It is a world of knowledge towards Celtic history and information.

    Great introduction to how we know what we do about Celtic mythology, and many of the more substantial entries have sources listed right after the entry. That's what I like to see in a reference book! Great introduction to how we know what we do about Celtic mythology, and many of the more substantial entries have sources listed right after the entry.
