Have you read anything [fiction] by Robert Holdstock ?
He builds a world, such as you speculate upon, (although you'll find that the world goes on to become more of a backdrop to the characters in the
tales, than the central character of the tale itself, which is absolutely in no way a criticism, I have found very much in these stories ...).
"Mythago Wood" starts the story, followed by "Lavondyss" and "The Hollowing". "The Bone Forest" also has a short story about this world).
He has written quite widely beyond this too.
"Every folkhero and legend who had ever been known in English history had an analog, or mythago, residing in the woods, whose very existence was
tied, not to belief in the legend, but simply to the imagination of the surrounding minds."
