AtoZ 2017: W is for Willow

W is for Willow As I inch toward the finish line of my 2017 AtoZ Challenge series, Dragons in Our Fandoms, this time let’s look at a dragon from the modern classic fantasy movie Willow. Above is the official Tonka action figure (which I’ll talk about more in a moment) of the dreaded Eborsisk dragon from the movie, since there aren’t…

AtoZ 2017: U is for Ultima

U is for Ultima Apologies for the delay, but up next in my 2017 AtoZ Challenge, let’s take a look at the dragons in another video game franchise I sadly never had the opportunity to play — the classic series called Ultima, and it’s MMORPG successor, Ultima Online.

D is for Dragonriders of Pern Continuing the April 2017 AtoZ Challenge, I’m going back to one of my absolute favorite series, and in all likelihood the reason I’m writing my own dragon novels: Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern.
