The Dragon and the George

Quick post today with a wonderful book recommendation. If you haven't already read it, Gordon Dickson's The Dragon and the George is a delightful and quick read. The story follows a college adjunct and his fiancee who suddenly find themselves in a Medieval world full of dragons, knights, talking wolves, and Dark Powers. They both learn a great deal about themselves and each other as they struggle to return to the normal world.

Fun fact: although Peter Dickinson's The Flight of Dragons is often thought to be the genesis of the 1980s animated TV movie by the same name (starring John Ritter, Henry Morgan, and James Earl Jones among others), the plotline actually follows The Dragon and the George story very closely. If you loved the old cartoon, you'll absolutely love this book.

Happy Reading!
