Encyclopedia Mythica
http://www.pantheon.org/

A CONTENT:
With over 600 definitions relating to gods, goddesses, supernatural beings and legendary creatures and monsters, this is a unique and interesting information-packed site.

B+ AESTHETICS:
Graphics here are minimal but well-placed and appealing. In addition, the site uses frames efficiently and effectively.

B+ ORGANIZATION:
Choose a "mythology" topic from the "Explore" option, and you're off searching for goddesses, fairies and the like.

REVIEW:
This is an outstanding resource for a very particular subject matter, another great example of the power of information on the WWW. It is an encyclopedia on mythology, magic, myths, legends, folklore from all over the world and from all times. The user searches alphabetically by category (such as Greek Mythology), or by keyword search (among other options). The hierarchical setup of pages is well thought out, and in addition uses frames very effectively to get the user to the information they want to see. (There is also a non-frame version of this site for those who need it)
