Summary, etc.: "From China to Europe, Africa to North America, dragons have long captured our imagination in myth and legend. Whether they are rampaging beasts awaiting a brave hero to slay or benevolent sages who have much to teach humanity, dragons are intrinsically connected to stories of creation, adventure, and struggle beloved for generations. Bringing together nearly thirty stories and poems from some of the greatest science fiction and fantasy writers working today."--

    *Starred Review* Strahan's (Mission Critical, 2019) latest anthology brings together stories and poems that vary widely in genre and scope but all center on one of the most enduring creatures in speculative fiction. Pieces are set in fantasy worlds, as in Kate Elliott's "The Long Walk," which describes the fate of women whose families can't or won't pay the tithe to the dragons who protect the world. There are stories of dragons in a world similar to our own, like Ken Liu's "A Whisper of Blue," in which dragon fire is the basis of the world energy economy and Zen Cho's "Hikayat Sri Bujang; or, The Tale of the Nage Sage," in which familial tension between ancient water serpents has far-reaching consequences for local ecology. There are even dragons in space, as in JY Yang's "The Exile," in which a dragon godlet is used to terraform a distant planet; Aliette de Bodard's "The Last Hunt," in which human and dragon alike are enslaved by mysterious alien invaders; and Ann Leckie and Rachel Swirsky's "We Continue," in which the survivors of a failed colony coexist with an insect-like hive. This collection is highly recommended to both established genre fans and newcomers interestedin quality sf and fantasy. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
