The Dragon Book Magical Tales from the Masters of Modern FantasyNever before published Book Magical ePUB #9734 stories by New York Times bestselling authors Jonathan Stroud Gregory Maguire Garth Nix Diana Gabaldon and others Whether portrayed as fire breathing reptilian beasts at war with humanity or as noble creatures capable of speech and mystically bonded to the warriors who ride The Dragon eBook #8608 them dragons have been found in nearly every culture's mythology In modern times they can be found far from their medieval settings in Overall this was a decent collection of fantasy stories all centered around that favorite of fantasy beasts the Dragon As usual with a collection of this sort there are some really good tales and some really not so good ones But overall I was impressed with the diversity and range amongst the stories and enjoyed reading stories by some fairly big name fantasy authors who to this point I had not yet read any of their other well known fareIf you enjoy short story collections in general I'd rate this one as slightly above average There was a really nice variety of styles and types of stories included in the collection Not all of the stories are set in what most would consider to be the typical fantasy setting As a matter of fact most of the tales manage to have a twist or two that put them firmly outside of the box of the ordinary In many cases this worked great but in several it was just plain oddAll in all I don't feel that I wasted my time on The Dragon Book and would recommend it to others wholike myself enjoy a collection of short stories to shake things up a bit
