"Are You Afflicted with Dragons?" by Kage Baker


Recommended Posts

Please join us for our next chat in  #readers_corner at 8:30 P.M. (EDST) April 14th, 2018 -- 00:30  A.M. (GMT) April 15th -- for a discussion of "Are You Afflicted with Dragons" by Kage Baker.

If this story concerned an affliction with rats rather than with dragons it would fit into a book of mediaeval myths and legends somewhere between the story of the Emporers New Clothes and the tale of the Pied Piper of Hamlin.  But because it deals with dragons rather than rats, I assume we should consider it a fantasy rather than a myth or legend.  At any rate, like all good fables, it teaches us some valuable lessons, cautioning against gullibility, greed, and hubris.  It's also a source of some amusing situations.  I think you will enjoy it.

The story is available on line at:  http://clarkesworldmagazine.com/baker_03_18_reprint/
