  • "You're invited to take an in-depth look at draconic villains and heroes and the skilled writers who created them. A longtime dragon admirer, Tolkien scholar Anne Petty takes readers on an adventurous ride over the hills and far away into realms populated by the likes of Smaug, Ramoth, and Orm Embar, just to name a few. Authors discussed in the Foreground section include J. R. R. Tolkien, Anne McCaffrey, Terry Pratchett, Ursula Le Guin, Jane Yolen, Terry Goodkind, and J. K. Rowling. The Background section offers an overview of draconic history in myth, art, and literature."
