Award-winning editor, anthologist and Jonathan Strahan stops by to talk about the latest anthology, The Book of Dragons, and how all these particular dragons came to be.
The wide variety of dragons and their particular natures surprises and satisfies in different ways, and Jonathan talks about his approach to curating the stories that impact him, about bringing together the illustrations by Rovina Cai that decorate this book, and more.
Jonathan also talks about the need going forward to explore more stories in a post-Campbellian, post-colonialism space, and post-empire views of science fiction and fantasy, in order to expand the sharing of more inclusive experiences from underserved and under-recognized to wider audiences.
