The short version is I liked the McKinley stories best and I m afraid it shows off my favoritism I borrowed this book from the library and was so impatient to begin reading it that I only made it as far as the relative privacy of my parked car before opening it up and plunging inI started with the first McKinley story of courseHellhound a horsey tale and fabulous If McKinley has a single curse it is in writing works that make me long to know what happens after the pages stop To which I say damn you McKinley Also she invents the very best names Gelsoraban Jry Krobekahl and Strohmoront indeed I want to know their stories tooFirst Flight a novella nearly a third of the entire book And while it does it honestly work as a whole and complete story it ended right when I got really curious about what else might happen And I love how McKinley made the dragons so BIG And I love Ern s entire worried personalityI enjoyed a couple of the Dickinson ones but I didn t love them nearly as muchPheonix which felt so solidly like an old man s tale on light and life and English priests of Egyptian gods and probably my favorite of the Dickinson onesFireworm which was okay too on ages past humans and mythology and cold endless winters and I suspect this story would have fit in uite nicely with Jean Auel s works had Auel been inclined to include otherworldly monsters in her storiesBut the Salamander Man story was just so very flat
