Non traditional dragon stories
25 January 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
There is something for everyone in both volumes. It's a mix. Some are better than others, but what the stories I don't like, you might like. I happen to have a special attachment to a story in volume one, but I have to say that overall this volume is better.
it's the best of the lot

10 stories in this book, by 10 different authors. Predictably, it's a varied lot. They're evenly split between tales set in versions of the modern world and those taking place in more traditional medieval and/or fairy tale locales. Over half involve dragons that prove helpful to human characters, especially children. None is less than respectable in quality, though I certainly had my favorites. "Tied to the Whim of a Tender Tyrant" by Shawn Hossein Mansouri tells of an abandoned infant found by a dragon with an impulsively maternal side. For my money, it's the best of the lot. Other stories I particularly liked were ones by Elizabeth Hopkinson (wizard in fairy tale town needs a dragon's assist dealing with a troublesome witch), Liam Hogan (lighthearted tall tale about gold-craving dragons infesting Fort Knox) and Gregg Chamberlain (wry humor as a dragon finds herself forced to play "Matchmaker" for a spoiled princess and a bungling would-be hero). As mentioned, I didn't find a stinker in the bunch--but I was a bit puzzled by the 1st story in the anthology. "The Giant's Heart" is pure fairy tale in structure, about a not-too-bright giant who hides his heart in a golden sphere. His chosen hiding place is among the treasures of a dragon family's treasure hoard--but it soon goes missing and bounces from one location to another and another. An okay tale, really--but a slightly odd choice for this book--since otherwise dragons are the center of attention.
