    The Dragon and the Stars ePUB Û The Dragon Epub / ´ eBook animal fiction.co dragon pdf, stars download, The Dragon book, and the epub, Dragon and the mobile, The Dragon and the Stars MOBIThe Dragon And The Stars sells itself as an anthology of original short stories melding the rich cultural heritage of China with the imaginative realms of science and fantasy The editors Derwin Mak and Eric Choi explain in the afterword that the anthology wants to feature Chinese characters in a non stereotypical light While all this sounds good to a Chinese like me I can only look at the cover art and wonder why a Western dragon is on it The stories inside are just as confused about the purpose of the anthologyI do think that the need for this anthology is a bit of a sad statement of things as the genre is still considerably a playground for white characters but at the same time I do like the idea of such an anthology if it is done right This anthology actually drags out Tess Gerritsen for an introduction Since she's not an author in the genre so her presence here as the VIP only underlines the lack of a

    The Dragon and the Stars ePUB Û The Dragon Epub / ´ eBook animal fiction.co dragon pdf, stars download, The Dragon book, and the epub, Dragon and the mobile, The Dragon and the Stars MOBII picked up this anthology after meeting one of the editors and contributing authors Derwin Mak at the Ad Astra convention in Toronto earlier this year And it was one whose premise sold itself I mean a collection of sci fifantasy stories inspired by Chinese mythology and experiences? Yes please I myself am Chinese American and one of my biggest gripes is that Chinese people Asians in general in fact are virtually invisible in the world of sci fifantasy Unless you're reading or watching something that came FROM Asia anime Bollywood kung fu films manga etc chances are the only Asians you'll ever see in sci fifantasy are token sidekicks or stereotyped cameosSo it was really wonderful and refreshing to get 18 new SFF stories of incredible range all by Chinese authors of varying experiences and all featuring Chinese people From a tale inspired by old school folklore to futuristi
