With so many different stories about dragons in this book
how can a reader be disappointed? Nineteen stories in all
a reader would have to be hard pressed to say that they
could not find a story to like in this book. Many well-
known and best selling authors contributed to this book.
From the Russian Revolution to the fictional universe of
Tortall there is just about a story for every reader.
I have to say that enjoyed the story A Stark and Wormy
Knight by Tad Williams the best. A few others come very
close but Tad Williams is one of my favorite authors and I
just love his writing style and humor. Oakland Dragon
Blues by Peter S. Beagle was another good story with a
dragon seeking an author of an unfinished story. It was
interesting to see things from the dragon's characters
point of view. The war That winter Is by Tanith Lee was
another great story. Many of the other stories were just
as great. I could go on and on, every story was a great
one. I enjoy many of the authors in this book and it was a
real treat to be able to read some never before published
stories by them. If the reader is not aware of any of the
contributing authors these short stories are a wonderful
way of introducing them to you.
There are many themes in these stories and some are adult.
If you enjoy dragons and tales about them I would highly
recommend picking this book up. Each and every author in
this book transports the reader into a wondrous world of
dragons. THE DRAGON BOOK was a good mix of stories and
authors from all over. Readers will enjoy the different
styles and adventures in this book. This book was a nice
quick read from many authors that I enjoy.

as fire-breathing reptilian beasts at war with humanity or
as noble creatures capable of speech and mystically bonded
to the warriors who ride them, dragons have been found in
nearly every culture's mythology. In modern times, they can
be found far from their medieval settings in locales as
mundane as suburbia or as barren as post-apocalyptic
landscapes-and in The Dragon Book, today's greatest
fantasists reignite the fire with legendary tales that will
consume readers' imaginations.
