"The Dragon Book" editors Jack Dann, Gardner Dozois varies whether dragons good, bad, both, settings, styles, tremendously, so something for many tastes. My faves are funny: 4 Afflicted 7 Oakland 14 Puzle and read before 17 Tamora Pierce's Kitten.
1 Dragon's Deep by Cecelia Holland is the rarelyfished area dared by Perla and villagers impoverished by a greedy Duke, but only she survives when a gentletongued male dragon attacks. Creepy, makes human males all horrid abusive turncoats. Sexuality in Holland's work always creeps me out.
2 Vici by Naomi Novik is from Julius Caesar's "Veni, vidi vici", Latin for "I came, I saw, I conquered", the name chosen by a newlyhatched amusingly tempermental dragon attaching to (Marc) Antony a As with all anthologies, there are some gems, some trash, and some middling stories. I feel the middling and gems outweigh the trash, but the middling stories are prevalent. It's a good book and I'd recommend it to any fantasy lover, but whether it's bookshelfworthy you'll have to judge for yourself. Personally, I'd go the library route with this one.
It didn't start off well. Dragon's Deep is the first story, a bore about an uninteresting girl, an uninteresting dragon, and a bunch of jerks who the girl formerly liked. Based on this story I would shy away from author Cecelia Holland's other work.
A lot of the middling works didn't have bad writing, but I dislike the feeling of being dropped in a world that the author doesn't properly explain, particularly when it pertains to the plot. The Dragon of Direfell (Liz Williams), Humane Killer (Diana Gabaldon 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 notsogood 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 more well known fare.
If 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 This book took me FOREVER to get through. It's a collection of short stories about dragons (and what people have perceived them to be across time) and some of the stories are quite good, while other ones are a waste of paper. Since each story varies in quality, I figured I'd do a quick review of each story individually.
Dragon's DeepThis was a good classic Dragon Story for the most part. a little strange in places, but overall, what one would expect from a good dragon story. Good thing they started the book with this story, if they had started with one of the more odd ones I'd have probably given up on the book right away.
ViciA decent story, oddly abrupt ending. But I felt like the Dragon should have ate the main character (along with the lion) when she hatched. Not one of my favorites.
Bob Choi's Last JobOkay, this one was just weird. I didn't like all of the stories, but some of them were truly excellent.
Comments: This collection of 19 never previously published short stories by mostly wellknown authors is written for an "all ages" audience, meaning for adults but an acceptable crossover for older teens. The book is entirely language and s*x free, though the themes keep the book form being suitable for anyone younger. There were a couple of stories I didn't appreciate but for the most part I rated the others 4s or 5s. I really enjoyed that this book of short stories contained one longer almost novella sized story along with several lengthy 30 page stories along with the shorter short stories, making for a wide range of reading, with the longer stories letting the reader become quite involved in the story. I certainly had my appetite whetted for some of the ✓ The Dragon Book: Magical Tales from the Masters of Modern Fantasy ✓ Did not finish, I tried the first 2 stories and couldn't finish either of them, so I have given up entirely on this; while I understand that each story is written by a different author, they were all chosen by the same person to be part of the book, thus I find I can't trust the other stories to be appropriate.
Dragon's Deep by Cecelia Holland: Mention of rape. Dragon violates the main character by licking under her dress. Um, gross. I was gagging so bad. Disgusting. I bailed so hard.
Vici by Naomi Novik: Swearing, and talk about not having a chance to buy a night with a "whore. " Did not finish. This was an almost uniformly bland collection, which disappointed me, because I quite enjoyed the previous anthology in this series, Wizards. There weren't any stories that I hated, or even particularly disliked, but there were also precious few that had any spark whatsoever; I finished the anthology yesterday, but can't recall more than four of the nineteen stories without consulting the table of contents. And even the best stories were still significantly flawed. Part of the problem, I suspect, lies in how little creativity the authors approached the subject of dragons withall of the dragons but two were of the typical European firebreathing variety (the two holdouts were an ice dragon and a sea dragon), and most were presented as monsters and the thrust of the stor Dragon's deep, Cecelia Holland: 2. 5* Vici, Naomi Novik: 3. 75* Bob Choi's last job, Jonathan Stroud: 1* Are you afflicted with dragons?, Kage Baker: 5* The Tsar's dragons, Jane Yolen & Adam Stemple: 3* (Sometimes it was boring, but overall a good plot for an enjoyable short story. ) The dragon of Direfell, Liz Williams: 3. 875* Oakland dragon blues, Peter S.
