The Encyclopedia of the Folk Tale Online is a new database that bridges the gap between past and present, assembling the results of nearly two centuries of international research on folk narrative tradition. From Ali Baba to zombie, the database covers all characters, genres, motifs and theories from a variety of cultural traditions.

The most comprehensive encyclopedia on folk narrative tradition now features cross-linked entries and can be fully searched electronically for the first time:

  • Approx. 4,000 articles
  • Various search criteria
  • Comprehensive indexes are included as searchable metadata
  • Covers other genres such as fables, myths, and sagas, as well as new media such as comic books and computer games
  • Contains comprehensive articles on all narrative types and themes

2016 AFS/ISFNR Joint Annual Meeting

We are pleased for the opportunity to present the database to the members of the ASF and the ISFNR at their joint conference in Miami. 

Our sales representative Carola Blackwood will attend the book exhibit on Thursday, October 20, 2016, to give you a first look at the functionality of the database and to answer any questions about the publication that you may have.
