Wings of Fire

Edited by Jonathan Strahan and Marianne S. Jablon, Night Shade (www.nightshadebooks.com), $15.95 paper (512p) ISBN 978-1-59780-187-4
This exemplary anthology, staffed by a host of award-winning authors, showcases every type of dragon: nature gods and mechanical beasts, intelligent companions, and feral ravagers of the countryside. The two original stories, Holly Black's "Sobek" and Margo Lanagan's "The Miracle Aquilina," are exceptional, as are many of the reprints, such as Anne McCaffrey's Pernese "Weyr Search"; George R. R. Martin's celebrated novella, "The Ice Dragon"; Peter S. Beagle's narrative poem, "Stable of Dragons"; Jane Yolen's Arthurian "The Dragon's Boy"; Naomi Novik's Temeraire tie-in, "In Autumn, a White Dragon Looks Over a Wide River"; Harlan Ellison and Robert Silverberg's urban fantasy collaboration, "The Dragon on the Bookshelf"; and Roger Zelazny's humorous "The George Business." The verbal magic of these stories will reignite draconian passion in even the most jaded fantasy reader. (Aug.)
