Black Dragon, White Dragon Review

I have been an unproductive sloth since finishing classes on Monday, so there’s little to report but the review of Black Dragon, White Dragon anthology over on The Fix. I give you the excerpt in which its all about me:

Peter M. Ball’s “The Dragonkeeper’s Wife” is ostensibly about the dragon, but it is really the story of two people pulled apart by their beliefs. Anyone who has ever dated or been married to someone diametrically opposed to them philosophically or politically will feel the import of this tale. “The Dragonkeeper’s Wife” is sad, but it ends on a note of hope, and is well-wrought in a Gene Wolfe, Peter Beagle fashion.

No, I’m not sure why Gene Wolf’s name is highlighted and Peter Beagle’s isn’t. I just nod and link and mention once again that the books available now in print and e-book.

I would post more, but I slept through yesterday and that means I need to get stuff done. See you all tomorrow after I’ve done, well,  something at least vaguely more productive 🙂

    Good question. We only bold the author's name the first time. It was bolded a few reviews up from yours. 🙂

      Well, yes, I suppose if you're going to have a logical answer that does make a kind of sense 🙂

      Still looks a little odd to my eyes, though.

    Actually it does to mine too. The reviewer actually bolded it and as copyeditor I removed it as per house style. I guess that's one reason why I had to chime in here when you were wondering, so you'd know there was an actually reason behind it. 🙂
