Book Review: Black Dragon, White Dragon edited by Robert J. Santa

Dragons. Whether Western or Eastern, these beasts have captured the imagination of children and romantics everywhere. Are these myths holdovers of a memory of the gigantic beasts called dinosaurs? Or were they once a reality? No one knows, but these strange creatures have been hand in hand with fantasy ever since it was popularized by J. R. R. Tolkien’s dragon Smaug. Many, many epic and heroic fantasies have featured dragons. While there is currently a trend away from using them in the fantasy genre, they will never fully leave–they are simply too much a part of the weft and weave of many readers’ understanding of fantasy.
