Pagan Idol: rate your favorite gods

Godchecker not only has tons of great information about deities from around the world written in a informative and humorous style, but it also features a Deity of the Day.

Here’s a sample from the Chinese god, Monkey:

From the beginning of time, a certain rock on the Mountain of Fruit and Flowers had been soaking up the goodness of nature and QI energy. One day this pregnant rock released a stone egg, and from it hatched a Stone Ape, who solemnly bowed to the Four Corners of the Earth — then jumped off to have fun.

This was MONKEY. He was high-spirited, egotistical and full of mischievous pranks. He was soon having a wonderful time as King of the Apes. But a niggling worry began to gnaw at him — one which would change his life. The Monkey King feared Death.

There are also essays, some theory and they just added a section for Christian Saints. Not only a useful reference for catching up on your mythology, but an entertaining one.
