    An excellent collection of fantastical stories

    Anyone who has read my book reviews for a while knows that I have a soft spot for short story anthologies. I enter them knowing that I've got a mixed bag. I will adore some stories, and some I will rather not care for at all. But the short story is such a wonderful literary piece, a complete tale that can be fully discovered in a single evening. And this one is all about dragons! I rather fancy the standard european mythical dragons, especially the ones that are intelligent and old. I just like the concept. So, this book had a lot going for it in my opinion. And it was a good use of my time. There were two stories that I just adored, "The Dragonbone Flute" by Lois Tilton, and "The Ice Dragon" by George R. R. Martin. I wouldn't be at all surprised if in future years I pull down this volume just to re-read those stories. And, as expected, there was the story I really could have done without, "A Plague of Butterflies" by Orson Scott Card. I've never been a fan of Mr. Card's work. It's not that he's a bad writer, not at all, I just don't care for what he does with his stories. But there were many more good stories than not-so-good. I was rather surprised at the large number of sci-fi dragon stories, with dragons being creatures living on other planets in the far future. I'd never seen them as science ficition fodder, but I can't really see the harm in it, either. Just a matter of taste, I guess. And this collection is mostly tasteful, and a good read for those with a liking for Dragons.
