Either way, they are the creation of a master storyteller and present a fascinating world different from the usual fantasy world of dragons — SF REVUFor many readers, several of these stories will be already familiar, three of them were HUGO nominees and widely anthologized. For new readers, rest assured that THE DRAGON GRIAULE contains stories that will alternately entrance, amuse, perplex, shock, enlighten, confound, and compel you to keep reading. Its a journey of altered lives in an altered landscape, where the fantastic and the real mingle in the lives of people who are never quite sure where their desires end and the dragons desires begin.
