Dragon’s Blood

The publishing crisis certainly has not made life easier for many Italian authors, especially those of fantastic fiction, a literary genre that is not so popular in Italy, so I’m really pleased to announce that an anthology of historical and fantasy short stories entitled «Sangue di Drago» (Dragon’s Blood) is under distribution since March 31st, 2014. The anthology, published by the cultural association «I Doni Delle Muse» (The Gifts Of Muse), contains 19 stories by well-established authors in the genre — including, undeservedly, the undersigned — all focused on the theme of that wonderful and mysterious mythological figure that is the dragon.

Back cover

Many things are told about Dragons. Poets sing of how they were generated from the depths of infinite oceans or the hot bowels of the Earth, others celebrate their poisonous eyes, their hearts bearing power and immortality. There something more, anyway: the plots of the nineteen stories of this anthology — written by the best Italian fantasy authors — deal with the darkness of past times and the disillusionment of worlds where magic is nothing more than a distant memory, to render in all its complexity one of the most beloved fantasy creatures of all times.
