Although The Mythology of Grimm was released a number of years ago, somehow I missed it. As a longtime fan of Grimm, and someone who rewatches the episodes whenever the mood strikes, it’s a nice piece to add to my fan collection.
The Mythology of Grimm by Nathan Robert Brown
NBC’s hit television series Grimm pits modern detective Nick Burkhardt of the Portland Police against a cast of terrifying villains—lifted directly from the pages of classic fairytales. In the world of the show, the classic stories are actually a document of real events, and Nick himself is descended from a long line of guardians, or Grimms, charged with defending humanity from the mythological creatures of the world.
From The Big Bad Wolf to Sleeping Beauty, The Mythology of Grimm explores the history and folkloric traditions that come into play during Nick’s incredible battles and investigations—tapping into elements of mythology that have captured our imaginations for centuries.
What I like about this kind of book is the ability gain insight into episodes and see them in a new light. It makes the old new again. :)

If you’ve been missing Grimm and want to add the series to your fan collection, check out the Grimm complete collection on DVD or Blu-ray:
The Grimm Complete collection includes all six seasons and special features. A great addition to a Grimm fan’s collection. :)
There’s also the book tie-in series for Grimm that’s worth reading.
- The Icy Touch
- The Chopping Block
- The Killing Time
The links take you to Barnes and Noble for more information, or you can click the link above for the page on Scififantasies where you’ll find descriptions and cover images to goggle over.
For tie-in novels, Grimm has some of the best covers out there. (Most tie-in novels use a combination of promo shots of the actors and stock images and don’t always look that active, shall we say. The Grimm novels are better than most.) :)
