About the Quiver


Trick arrows range from the clever to the absurd to the sublime. For a previous project, I went searching for a list of all trick arrows used. There are many trick arrow lists online, but even the best ones are incomplete. I wanted a comprehensive list and no such list existed.

Being a librarian by nature and profession, I could not let this stand. And so I set out to catalog all trick arrows found in genre fiction.


This is a not-for-profit side project so I can only work on it when time is available. It will take a while to complete.
