Overview

From time immemorial, dragons have walked and flown in the minds of men.

Nearly every culture on Earth has myths of these mighty beings. Anywhere humans have set foot, one can find dragonlore. Even today these majestic creatures captivate and amaze us. They appear in our movies and fantasy novels, and abound in traditional and virtual role-playing games (RPGs).

Dragonlore recounts the stories of dragons from Europe, Asia and the Americas, from the sea serpents Leviathan and Nessie to Lewis Carroll's Jabberwock. This richly-illustrated book examines dragons in modern culture and the natural world, including the pterodactyl and other saurians, whose fossilized bones were inexplicable and awe-inspiring discoveries. And don't forget about the Komodo Dragon, the largest lizard alive today.

Come, walk with author and dragon lore expert Ashley DeKirk�in the shadow of the dragon.

Dragonlore is the first book in a series developed from popular courses taught at the online Grey School of Wizardry (www.GreySchool.com). Each volume in the series, titled the Archives of the Grey School of Wizardry, will be written by faculty members and introduced and edited by Headmaster and wizard Oberon Zell-Ravenheart.

These textbooks will form a comprehensive library that Magick-users everywhere will wish they'd had during their own apprentice years. Following the 16 departments of the Grey School, the Archives will provide in-depth looks at the Wizarding world with favorite topics such as dragonlore, naturalist studies, magickal healing, herbology, divination, cosmology, and more.

Ashley "LeopardDancer" DeKirk, Professor of Lore and Divination at the Grey School of Wizardry, has extensive knowledge of myth and folklore around the world. She holds a B.A. in anthropology, specializing in dragonlore and Asiatic/Native American myth. Professor DeKirk is a Dun'marran Priest who lives in North Carolina with her three cats, Rufus, Drizzt and Bakura.

Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, Headmaster of the Grey School of Wizardry and best-selling author of Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard and Companion for the Apprentice Wizard, is a Founding Elder in the worldwide magickal community. In 1962, he co-founded a Pagan church with a futuristic vision, and for more than 30 years, published Green Egg, a leading journal of the Pagan movement.
