How to Dissect Your Dragon

A Natural History of DragonsI got my hands on an advanced reading copy of A Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir by Lady Trent by Marie Brennan and reviewed it for Blogcritics. Her publicist also set up an email interview with the author.

Apparently there will be at least two more books set in this world where dragons are real and subject to prodding and poking by eager naturalists. It felt like a mix of Downton Abbey, Pern and Series of Unfortunate Events.

Dragon enthusiasts will recognise the handiwork of Todd Lockwood who is responsible for the beautiful illustrations throughout.

Marie will appear at the Seattle University Bookstore on the 6th of February and in the World Fantasy Con in Brighton, England, this October. A full list of her public appearances can be found here.

I’m still trying to decide whether I should book tickets to this year’s Eastercon and the Fantasy Con does sound tempting, too. A pattern seems to have emerged where my husband and I go to every other Eastercon. It’s not deliberate although the fact that every other Eastercon has been in London has been a big deciding factor. This year’s con is in Bradford from the 29th of March through to the 1st of April.
