    So the only story I remembered in this book was Joust by Mercedes Lackey and I knew that I loved it and the novel she released based on it afterwards I found it again when organizing my books and have been in a dragon mood so I pulled it out It has some pretty illustrations and I was very excited for no freaking reason apparently Aside from Joust which is a great short story about a slave and the dragon he cares for thes

Brand new contributions to the hoard of dragon lore by five top fantasy authorsOrson Scott Card's In the Dragon's House is a gothic yarn about the mysterious dragon that lives in the wiring of an old house noticed by a young boy who shares its body in dreams and feels its true size and powerMercedes Lackey's Joust tells t. I started each story wary of its manner of responding to the story about dragons prompt But each story flouted my low expectations and left me pleasantly surprised I found Orson Scott Card s modern day story to be atmospheric and full of endearing characters The pace of In the Dragon s House was slow and at first I was irritated by the seeming absence of any dragon But the story rounded out nicely and left me kind of loving the people and the house and even the dragon that had initially irked meComing after Orson Scott Card s story Elizabeth Moon s Judgement felt almost too action packed But the medieval esue fantasy world pretty much set the tone for the rest of the stories And it didn t conform to the happily ever after conclusion I thought I saw comingLove in a Time of Dragons was the most polarizing of the stories for me with all its twists and surprises It kept writhing out of the judgments and definitions I tried to place on it At first it seemed grossly un feminist then like a pandering bit of shock for shock s sake convention defiance but then it got kind of lovely and ultimately became something which though I m reluctant to say I liked impressed me As in it left me withimpressionsMercedes Lackey s Joust just kept reminding me of Jane Yolen s pit dragon trilogy I really have nothing else to say about it except that I read Yolen s trilogy first and therefore like it betterAaaand the last story The King Dragon novella It wasodd Not a conventional oldie timey mythical land setting Not a contemporary tale either really But it still drew on modern day machinery steampunk not uite as well as mythicalfey conventions the power of names truth telling hags scrying and magic and a fey world where magic is normal and normal mortals are aberrations The atmosphere of the story reminded me of The Stones Are Hatching and I felt a similar sort of ambivalence about King Dragon upon first reading it Maybe I ll end up re reading these stories I definitely don t feel like I ve ruminated on them enough to pass my final judgment And I feel like lingering on each story would solidify my opinions on them all one way or another But at the moment I just as they say in England can t be assed
