This is the companion volume to Dragons of Light. I don't think it is quite as good. A few of the stories barely qualify as about dragons. The opening story by Glen Cook, is dark and gritty. "Middle Woman" is a nice twist on the be careful what you wish for theme. Joan Vinge's "Storm King" left me wanting more of this story of a king's son who demands power from the dragon. Ben Bova's story is a humorous story about a dragon's effect on organized crime. Still, a largely forgettable anthology.

Pretty solid, but nothing special... aside from one story, the one about the rigger. <3
It's outstanding so far - though I'm only on the first story. It's by Glen Cook and called "Filed Teeth". Delightfully dark and connected to his Dread Empire series, which I really loved. Good stuff!.........Finished the book. Of the 10 or so stories only 2 of them were average. The rest excellent. Highly recommended.j
Not as good as Dragons of light.
