Publisher's Summary

Here be dragons….

A unique collection of stories by the greatest fantasy writers working today.

Sparking myths and legends from Asia to Europe, Africa to North America, dragons are the most universal and awe-inspiring of magical creatures.

Whether they are fearsome, rampaging monsters or benevolent sages with much to teach humanity, dragons bring creation, destruction, and adventure in stories told all around the globe.

In this landmark collection, award-winning editor Jonathan Strahan combines nearly thirty never-before-seen short stories and poems, written by modern masters of science fiction and fantasy, and illustrations by acclaimed artist Rovina Cai.

Featuring stories from Scott Lynch, R.F. Kuang, Garth Nix, Ken Liu, Kate Elliott, and many more, The Book of Dragons breathes fresh life and fire into the greatest magical beasts of all.

Good but could have done with more bread

I enjoyed the book but felt it could have done with a few more generic classic style dragon stories. Most felt like the author wanted to write the "weird" dragon story in the book and when they are all like that it makes the unconventional ones seem more run of the mill. More classic bread and butter stories would have been nice and made the unconventional ones stand out more
